instead of a hinged mount, have you considered doing (buying or making) the undertail relocation kit? Just move your plate further up under the tail (where it's still visible from the rear) and the camera shouldn't be able to see it just based on angle.

I did think about that, but I don't think I would do a good job rewiring/locating the turn signals when I remove the fender.

Plus the bike looks much more legit with the stock fender(not cool, just more stock/legal/has a square for a rider). I think with the plate tucked up under the bike you run the risk of being pulled over and harassed where as a hinged plate will check out at first glance when they pull up behind you

Why haven’t the roads “gone free”?
Quote:
The County's toll roads have not "gone free" because the current user-fee based system provides adequate funding for maintenance and improvements to the existing roads, as well as funding for future expansion, without using tax dollars.

If the roads "go free," they are turned over to the state. The current state highway fund is dwindling, just as the demands on the state highway system itself are growing. The gas tax simply does not generate enough funding to maintain existing highways, much less build or maintain new ones.

I guess all roads are just a little different for sure. You had mentioned HOV enforcement on 59. I have ridden 290 for 5+ years now and have only seen them enforcing it once.

This is a good point. What kind of bike do you commute with?

Seems like a lot of mixed answers for whether or not the sensor actually picks their bike up.

Do you carry the sensor on you? seems like the guys who don't carry it are the one's getting away with it more or less.


Seems like a hinged license plate is the surefire way to go. That's what I'm currently looking into
Versys 650

I can't explain it...but I had to keep track of it, $12.50/day on my expense report and I had to highlight all the tools for the bean counters.

We need some inside information, it.

I'm assuming you carry the transmitter on your bike?

I'm out of data to post pics but it's not rocket science. Intergrated turn signal tail light, undertail kit, plate on hinge 6 inches in from tail light.

I had an idea for actually mounting the plate to a hinge without modifying the tail lights or anything else...the part I'm having trouble with is how to rig the cable up that actually pulls the tag up and out of sight.

Funny how history repeats itself. You had the exact same people talking trash.

I just wish youtube hadn't removed the video. I'm still sifting through all the trash talkers and people asking about the tape to find the useful info

so, is the hinge spring loaded, or do you just reach back and hold the tag up until you pass through the plaza?

If you do not like tolls (aka lexus lanes), relocate to an area that does not have them. Eventually even areas with toll roads, a method used by those with $$$ to reduce commute times to their flight communities, will implode anyway. If you pay close attention, toll roads ironically appear to follow the direction of mass growth of flight areas like the woodlands and katy.

I did this a couple years ago. Total of four tolls a day for about a month. Then I got pulled over one day a mile or two past a toll. Constable told me he'd been given a description matching me of someone riding the line every morning and he wanted me to know if i ran one more that way I'd be going to jail. I got a ticket for running the one till he actually saw, paid 19.50 at the court window and still ended up saving over 100 bucks that month for all the tolls I didn't get ticketed for. It was good while it lasted and I started paying tolls.

If you dont have EZ tag and you ride thru a toll, they will get a pic of your plate and process a toll for you. If you dont call within a certain amount of time, they will send you fines. Its like $15 per run toll. If you do call, they will lookup your plate and see the run tolls. They will then just charge you the regular amount for the tolls. If you call too soon however, they will not have your run tolls in the system and you can then ask them to take a manual payment if you know how much you need to pay. Otherwise just pay a few bucks over what you think maybe. I ran 3 tolls before i got an EZ tag and was sent a fine for about $47. My plate is mounted extremely low and angled facing the ground on my R6 and they still got my plate #.
