Um, what about putting a magnet on the bottom of your bike the the rest of us do? You could always have your passenger get off and press the pedestrian button...

those magnets are probably for atracting metal shavings from normal wear and tear. it keeps them out off the normal oil flow to try to keep wear down, like a magnetic drain plug. as for the trafic lights I have allways heard they are a magnetic resonance detector, and since new motorcycles especially are made primarily of non ferrous items souch as alluminum amd magnesium they just don't carry enough of a flux to trip the device. a strong magnet is supposed to make all the difference though.
