    Superman has natural powers. Batman is the one with a suit, and no natural inherent powers

    let's not say magnets don't work. let's just say that lots of motorcyclists manage without them. Aim to stop inside the etched boxes in the road. I've never tried putting my kick stand down, that sounds like it could cause more problems like cutting off the engine or worse.

    When you pull up at the front of the lane you'll notice groves have been cut into the tarmac and then filled again. In those groves are wires which form an induction grid which detects the presence of a vehicle and triggers the lights.

    Looks similar to this:



    Try to stop your bike so you are over the centre wire - the cross-over of the two loops [looks like a number eight on its side]. That normally triggers the lights. If it doesn't and there's a vehicle behind you, gently ease forward and signal for them to move up onto the loop.

    If you are getting caught at lights that don't trigger with your bike, report the issue to AT - go to their Motorcycle Safety page and report that the loop doesn't appear to be working correctly. The loop's sensitivity can be adjust, so I have been told.

    Do you know what that means in relation to YOUR bike ... ???
    Sweat wipes off. Road-rash doesn't.

    The magnet might help collect metal bits off the road, so there's a bonus.
