when I had my r6, I went to radio shack and bought some of these:

It's not like that at all. Throwing cigarette butts on the ground requires you to have cigarettes and the ground and you decide to smoke them and throw them down. Your decision.
A light who's operation is defictive, i.e. not set sensitive enough, is not your decision and the law does provide a way for you to proceed legally. There is no way to litter legally. Going through a defectively operating signal is not breaking the law if done under the provision of the law.
I've been a traffic attorney for over 25 years so trust me, I know what I'm talking about. Ok, that was a lie. It hasn't been over 25 years. Actually I'm not a lawyer. Smoke 'm if ya got 'm.

I didn't worry about re balancing the wheel when I added approx. 5grams of weight to each wheel.

There are several states that have a law like this. Texas however, is not one of them (should be though).

Somebody get started on it for next session. Get a bill introduced.

nothing worse than sitting at a left turn light that won't change in 102 degree temps while on a hot motorcycle on top of hot concrete/pavement..

same goes for speeding. the posted speed is only a 'suggestion' that requires the judge to uphold or throw out.
Neither statement is correct. Texas does not have such a law in place, but I only worry about it when going straight through the light. Most of the lights I go through will activate. It's the left turns that get me. I'll sit at them for awhile, but if it doesn't change, I make the turn unless there's a sign under it that says "Left on Arrow Only." If I ever get pulled over for making a left, I'll point out that it didn't say "Only" and see how far it gets me.

Speed limit signs are color-coded. The only posted "suggested" speeds are those on a yellow background. Everything else is law. White background is state, and I've been told that an orange background means federal law.

Regulatory signs have white backgrounds and include speed limit signs and no parking signs. Warning signs are yellow and provide information to the driver about upcoming merges, schools and roadway changes. Destination and

distance signs are green with white lettering. Orange signs alert drivers to work zones. Brown signs are for cultural and recreational destinations.
