Default FL Sunpass Mounting

I've recently purchased my Phantom and I'm using it for my commute from Destin to Niceville every day -- what a beautiful view driving over the MidBay Bridge. I also purchased a Sunpass so that I pay $2 instead of $3 each way for the privilege of crossing the bridge. I don't have a windscreen yet and I'm not sure when I'll get one. Anyone have suggestions for mounting the Sunpass without a windscreen.

Thanks!

I mount my sunpass to my tank. The suction cups hold nicely. Even at 100mph.
If yours is the type that sticks to the windshield and is non moveable then your stuck. Those new ones that are permanent mount to a windshield use the glass as the antenna.

Which type of Sunpass do you have? If it's the ministicker the website says they are not designed for motorcycles. They do have a SunPass Slim Portable Transponder that now comes with 2 suction cups so it would be easy to attach it to your tank and remove easily to keep it from being stolen. Another forum said that they can be carried in a pocket and still works.

I have the transponder. It seemed to work on my tank this morning, but I noticed a couple times that the suction cups were not staying attached to the tank. I quickly pulled it off and stuck it in my pocket after going through the gate. Was just wondering if anyone had seen/used other options.

Just make sure the surface is clean and it should stick. Try the top of your headlight.

+1^ I found if my tank had any dust the cups wouldn't stick. Just went through the toll from the turnpike to I4 and it worked fine.

I have a handle bar mount for my ezpass, I'm sure they make the same for the sun pass. The mount works great it stays on even on the worst city streets around and the wind won't blow it off either.

I use the strips that come with the ezpass. They stick to anything...almost anything
