Toll roads

So I’m hoping to go to the big wristtwister palooza in Union grove. I wondering what means of payment for the toll roads I should use?

1.) I – pass. It’s $50. and I can put my bikes, and me and the wife’s trucks on it. And I can put money on it when ever.

2.) Go as fast as I can and hope they cant see my plate?

3.) Spend $230 for the licence plate frame that fogs up so you cant read it.

4.) Or get a coin changer. Sexy I know but it may work.

While approaching the toll booth get up to 100 MPH, put bike in neutral and do one of those Maxtrix flip aournds so you go through the toll booth backwards. Tell them you forgot something and you'll be right back.

Just avoid them at all cost! The backroads are more fun anyway.

Press Any Key To Continue.

I go through a toll booth everyday on the way to work. I use an EZ-pass. When I ride the bike I mount it behind the windscreen on the front of the speedometer. Works great and cut the cost of the toll from $3 to 60 cents.

i have a toll tag... but i only hit the toll road at night on the way home...

i find that the 2 leds i have for my license plate lights apparantly don't allow the camera to get a photo at night..

and if it does get a readable photo they just assume that the transponder didnt pick up and they deduct the money from my transponder account... but oddly enough since i put those lights on they havent gotten a clear photo...

Really..... mmmm. So maybe get some LEDs, and Maybe just go through the tolls at night? I'll be like a green ninja (not kawasaki) sneeking though the night, skipping toll both after toll booth. << they look like they're dancing. so cute.
