it is for attaching to the front plates for certain models of cars that had something going on in the glass that a regular ezpass could not get through. i had one on our durango and i had one on my gs. i liked it on the bike. i had removed the ezpass sticker and had it zip tied under the headlight. i felt it blended in well and was 'hidden' more than leaving the huge chunk of white plastic out in the open. not so much on the durango. the problem was that every now and then the parking attendants would crush it open or knock it off parking.

And does it say motorcycle?

Years ago I specifically requested that type of EZ pass. And for nearly a year they kept charging me car rates, since I had autopay I never realized it till one day I decided to look at my bill.

I called and bitched and they just shrugged their shoulders, offered me a few bucks back but not for the whole year.

I got pissed, cancelled that card and never paid that last month.

Did you have the candybar tag registered to the bike? Because they told me they could not do that for me, I spoke to a few different people. I also had mine zip tied to below the triple tree.

I think I still have it in a drawer somewhere.

Yep, it says motorcycle on the papers I got with it.

I guess I'll try to get it on the forks somehow.

If it's the same size as the last one. Try large P clamps right on the top of the forks.

Actually, the first time you use it, use zip ties, just in case it doesn't get read in the toll booth.

I just received a small motorcycle EZpass from them to replace a non working square one. Both had "MC" on them, if yours doesn't, it may not be MC.

The International Motorcycle Show at NYC's Jacob Javits Convention Center

Remember to stop at the NYMSTF booth (#2326 or thereabouts) and say "HI!"

FYI there is FREE on-street motorcycle parking on the show days this year on 36th and 38th right off 11th Ave, thanks to the NYMSTF and the IMS organizers. Those of you on our mailing list would have received a notice about this last Sunday. Those of you who aren't on our mailing list, really need to get on it by going here: http://www.nymstf.org/join-us/

Ride safe and dress warm!

Hopefully the thief doesn't read this forum!
But seriously, I hope they get your bike back. Fingers crossed.
