ppl always tell me how dangerous it is when I ride with my skull candy (little earplug shaped headphones) in, but no one ever says when I just wear my regular earplugs (try to wear them on longer trips now, tired of ears ringing afterwards). With my headphones on low, I hear more than with my earplugs in.
anyway the skull candy are the perfect motorcycle headphones. highly recommended.. FYE carries them. great bass response too.

as for intersections if you look at the ground you can see where they cut out (usually squares) for the sensors, if you put your bike where your kickstand will come down right on the cut line you can usually trip the sensor (just make sure you put your bike in neutral so youre not the dumbass who stalls out as the light turns green!). sometimes you have to lean hard on the kickstand and it helps that way.
I've never had luck with the "slamming" method mentioned above... but a lot of times I can see the sensor if I'm first in line and I know I don't weigh enough to set it off, and a car will pull up behind me and I gesture wildly to try to get them to pull up close but they respectfully (or whatever) stay like 10 ft back.. so then we both end up sitting there until a row of traffic builds up and finally I just run the ****ing light.
moral of the story:
**** it, bikes are fast for a reason.

Just wait for an opening and run the light. You do it so quick the people in the intersection won't notice you did it until after you've cleared.
Busy intersections have enough people turning left to trip the light, pull all the way out so they pull up further to set it off.

Wearing ear phones in TX is illegal, however speakers are not. You can get some small yet powerfull speakers for your helmet.
I looked it up under TX penal codes and it was covered, although it was a couple yrs ago. Doubt however it's changed.
Keep in mind, Cops, troopers are not likely to know this, or even enforce it.
