Alternative to Aerostich EZ Pass holder

As the title states, I'm looking for an alternative to the EZ Pass holder from Aerostich. I've tried keeping the EZ Pass in my pocket, but it only works 50% of the time and pulling it out of my pocket and holding it up can be tricky.

What are you guys using? Thanks in advance

Do you have to carry it? Here in CA they just use your license plate thats registered to it if the device fails to go off. Due to some strange complexities in toll roads being free for bikes vs bridges with a toll, I just don't carry mine anymore. Haven't had a problem in nearly 2 years of daily toll crossings.

+1 on having the plates registered with the Trollway people. I havn't carried the thingon a bike for 6, 7 years, no problems whatsoever.

just wondering what problem you have with the 'stich holder ?? i have it screwed onto the left mirror stalk and have used it for the last 15 yrs w/o problem. except in ohio, where sometime it reads, sometimes it doesnt, then you need to wait for the gate to go up, etc....but the rest of the advanced world works just fine.

that way i can pop it off and use it in the car whenever...

I have mine zip tied to the area above my guages on my Adventure. Plate registration should also be sufficient. I recommend even if you have your EZ Pass mounted, "failure to communicate" is a common problem and if you are not registered you will have to pay the full amount at least, in Ill if you use an IPASS you only pay 50% of cash payment, not sure about other states.

Zipties and heavy electrical tape to make it stay put under the front fairings on my GS. Works fine.

Vstrom - attached to windshield with the 3m plastic they give you at DMV
Dr350 - same stuff on front fender
Never a problem

Key is to ride in the center of the lane. I know it's full o shit but that's the only way it works for me.

I have this EZ pass holder on an old Honda Shadow with buckhorn bars. Only position it fits on the buckhorns puts the EZ Pass almost perpendicular to the road (and the EZ pass sensor over head), so it works maybe 50% of the time....

thanks for the replies guys!

i used to have mine attached to the inside of a small fairing using DMV velcro, but that's how i lost my first EZPass (somewhere outside of balitmore).

i don't have the Aerostich holder, just wondering if there was anything else out there more reasonably priced or significantly better.

i will probably end up getting it to try it out. thanks again.

You can use an EZ pass holder. Place your pass in this holder and attach it on your vehicles. You can even buy designer and customised pass holders according to your personality.

Use the EZ Pass Holders with Windshield

You can also use the windshield and can stick it on your car in front of you. It will make your task really easy.

I painted mine black and used the regular Velcro like fasteners on the inside of the wind screen. I also put a tether on it. Actually everything on the bike is tethered, EZ-Pass, SIRIUS, GPS,etc.

I carried my I-Pass in my exterior chest pocket on a lanyard. Worked great in Illinois, just zip right through. Once the signal wasn't detected but they got the license plate number and deducted the fee from my account.

In Ohio or Pennsylvania it was another story, there I had to stop, remove, and wave around about 75% of the time. Once I had to push the Help button and read the serial number to the operator on the other end.
