Just wondering how most riders hang their toll passes on the Wing? Currently I'm using tie wraps to secure the pass to/thru the windshield vent. Works fine but looks like crap. :) If you come to Florida, go online a couple of weeks before you get here and pick one up, Sunpass that is. Saves you a ton of time and hassles. Just trying to boost tourism in FL. :)

I wait till i get a notice in the mail, then i pay it online through my toll pass. I have tried different ways to carry it, in my jacket or on my dash (i wont do that one again) and still i get a notice sometimes. So i decided not to carry one and wait until they send me one.

They once sent me a notice for 55cents, the letter and stamp cost more. Go figure:rolleyes:

I have a company commercial toll pass in my service van that I occasionally transfer to my Wing as my route dictates. As I approach the toll booth I pinch it in the windshield vent. I would love to ride to Florida if it weren't for I95 south getting in my way.

I made a pit stop at an oasis on the Illinois tollway. There was a toll authority booth there so I asked the lady behind the desk. She said to get a lanyard and plastic "ID-type" holder and wear it around my neck. Keeps the hands free and the only thing that looks silly is me. (so what else is new??)

I used to keep my old one on the windshield but the rain got to it. however my new one doesn't take batteries and has a much stronger signal and now it works in the left pocket.
so if you are using a old sun pass spend the money and get a new one its worth it to not have to worry about tolls any longer.

e-z pass

I made mine from a plexy, same size as ezpass. 2 slits for velcro wrap afix plexy to left side handle bar, velcro holds ezpass to plate.
I use it for either bike and it removes easy for security.

why can't you use the provided self-stick things that come with some of them. My I-Pass (Illinois) has these things with little nubs, Called dualock, they should solve the problem, just mount anywhere the thing has a clear view of the sky. Available through I-pass, I would imagine most states offer something similar. Or just use auto grade double stick tape used to put on trim, available at most auto paint/supply stores.

Can you post some pics of your setup? Some folks may find that handy to see...

Too bad they don't come with some sort of clips like you would have for a sun visor that you could clip on the windshield and take off if it rains..

I have the last version of the Florida Sun Pass that uses a battery. I commute the turnpike daily and wanted to stash the Sun Pass out of sight and the weather. Hate it on the windshield. The pockets up front did not work. I read somewhere that someone put it inside the trunk lid so I figured I'd give it a try. It works even with the electronics burried in the lid and the Kurry luggage rack on top. I put a couple of cable clamps using the exsisting holes in the inner lid and have a zip tie to hold it when the suckie cups loose their suck.

Mine stays in the work van, but this weekend I used it to commute the Dulles Toll road and the Baltimore Harbor Tunnel. Being a novice I clamped it in my jaws as I approached the overhead reader. Not pretty, but effective.

What are the sizes of these things? Maybe they'd fit in the little trunk pouches, there's be very little to interfere with the signal as the pouches ar just plastic with very littler metal in them.

Things that make you go.... hmmmmmmm. I'm a bit paranoid about the EZ-Pass transponder when using it on the bike. I positioned myself in the fast toll lane with my pass in hand with my hand in some position that I can't remember exactly how and the gate didn't trip! A very uncomfortable position to be in on a major toll exit unless you have the gate to yourself, which I did. Back peddled the bike the full 20 yards and shoved that transponder up at the face of the reader and took off like a bat out of hell. Trust but verify is my motto now.

When I changed windshields I mounted mine inside the cowling between the intake vents. The unit doesn't have to be visible to operate

It was a gated express lane. Like svk1200, I would mount mine somewhere if it was a permanent fixture of the bike.
