it adds up quick depending on how often you use it. I calculate that back when it was 1.50 I was spending about 2200 a year on tolls. .75 cent savings would've saved me over 1000 dollars a year.

Legalize lane splitting on the toll roads and they have even less impact.

You have half the tires and 1/4 the vehicular weight, less potential to destroy barriers when crashing.

Motorcycles are too small a minority for anyone in government to be forced into caring. The same reason they can tax the out of diesel, majority doesn't care. You need to get other parts of the government involved, the toll authority will never vote to reduce their own revenue.

Make a point how the top ten best selling motorcycles get much better gas mileage than the top ten best selling cars.

In regards to getting other parts of government involved, isn't the law that makes motorcycles eligible for the HOV either state or federal level? Only point being that they can't force motorcycles to pay tolls on "managed" lanes due to being classified as HOV-eligible at a much higher level. I agree that it would likely take a state or federal mandate that motorcycles be capped at 50% of car tolling levels (for example) for it to actually happen.

The HOV thing is a federal law, however it says that if the state feels it's a safety issue, they have the option to bypass it.

I tend to agree that the only way Mr. Storey will fix this is if you can somehow convince Him that rate reduction would increase profits...or take it to the state/federal government...getting that done would be like...an act of congress? bwahahaha

Also, if it were up to Likely Storey, you wild men on motorcycle's would be making it hard for him to perform mobility service on the HOV lane. You'd be charged for that too.

I would be curious to know what makes him think that the "wild men" damaging his "mobility service" are actually paying anything to use his roads. It's been well-demonstrated that there are simple ways around paying (covering tags, wheelies, etc).

By the time June rolls around, I'll probably have perfected the art of toll violating.

I was experimenting with using my foot to cover the tag...but then it dawned on my that if I that up and get my foot caught in the rear tire, I'll be receiving the clown of the year award.

I'm not much of a stunter, but I need to learn this one:

1558593 623653774339193 2118760675 n

I'm assuming I would need to rig up a cruise control setup.

can you do it without a cruise control set up, or does that make it too unstable?

I know My SV slows down like a when you cut the throttle.

Do you do it from the rear or front seat?

I4 bikes don't engine brake nearly as hard as a v twin. Even more so with a slipper clutch, but just the difference from a twin to a 4 is huge.
