I don't have a "easy pass", but I do have a badge with an RFID for work. I need it to get into the parking lot. I tuck it in my left sleeve under my elbow/forearm armour. Never know it's there, I can wave it in front of the reader, and I have control/possession of it at all times.

I think the port authority does that. I got a nastygram from them becasue it didnt read my tag. had to send them a check for a 1.50 so no biggie. In NY if it doesnt read it the gate doesnt go up so you need to wait fo rone of the guys to come and let you through.

Right now I keep mine in my left hand pocket, I take it out, and will hold it as I go through or if theres traffic slip it up on the dash. then put it back after I go tthrough. Only dropped it once going to the battery tunnel. I would like a permenant mount but I work in an ER in the ****tiest part of brooklyn so you know some skell will steal it if i leave it out there so I prefer it to be on my person when I go into work. I only need it when i travel to my side job or for fun. So taking it off and putting it back can be a pita sometimes so if its in my jacket I cant forget it or anything like that.

In PA there is no fine for the tag not getting read as long as your plates are registered as a tag holder. You'll just get charged based on the plates.

Port authority is completley incompetent and corrupt, they will try to screw you when ever they can. They only realy cover the NJ/NY crossings. Most other bridges in NY arent covered by them.

I ended up getting a Ram Mount, X-Grip. It mounted perfectly with the small u-bolt that came with it. I placed it on the left handle bar kind of mirroring the brake fluid on the other side. I also put a small strip of neoprene underneath to keep things from getting dinged up. This worked nicely. It is also perfectly suited to hold a smart phone or gps.

My iPhone now does turn by turn directions and works nicely over Bluetooth into the helmet. I may need to find another spot for the easy pass if I use it regularly.

I have mine attached to the wind screen, it works fine. A few guys I ride with have them attached to their jackets which also seems to work well.
There is a new smaller version of the pass now in circulation, and is much easier to fit on our bikes.

Here in the bay area we have 'fastpass' which is pretty much the same thing, and just as mentioned above if it doesn't read the camera just takes a pic of your plate and bills accordingly. So long as your plate is registered to a transponder they really don't seem to care all that much.

Heck, half the time I don't hear the 'beep' from my transponder in the car even when I hold it up directly at the reader going through the toll gate. I don't know if it's reading or not since they don't send out a special bill.

On my bike my transponder lives in my left hand pant leg pocket permanently. It 'seems' to work fine; I can't imagine that a little cordura would interfere with it. Of course as stated before if it's not working I wouldn't really know since they just bill the plate anyway.

Given that I ride an S3, there's not a windshield or anything like that to mount it on anyway, so this seems good enough to me.

I use this: http://www.meshproducts.net/eztoll_p/m201.htm

It's cheap and the video shows lots of possibilities on where to place it.
I usually just drop it in the space behind the bottom of the windshield, where it remains securely wedged in place. I can just lift it out by the string, but usually don't bother since I've never heard of a transponder being stolen around here. If I come out one day and it's gone, I'll need to rethink my strategy.

Check if there are different options for the transponder. There are 2 versions of the them in Houston. The standard one is very thin (cheap!) and must be mounted flush to the car's windscreen. I know from multiple attempts that it will NOT survive even the most careful removal on a windshield replacement. They also offer what I would call the "older" version, which is 5-8mm thick block of rigid plastic, and it works perfectly sitting in the side compartment in the fairing, the pannier, under the saddle, or a tank bag. I had to pay $10-15 for the old style, but it has worked out well.

This thing definitely works better than the newer, standard ones- my neighborhood gates use the same type of reader, and when I pull up on the moto it open BOTH lanes of gates. I have never seen our cars trip both.
