Do you sometimes find yourself fumbling for change at the toll booth?

This may help:

I haven't tried it with winter gloves yet but it works great with summer and cool weather gloves.

EZ Pass is the only way to go in NJ, NY, MA etc...

Better to cruise through the tolls and not have drop your boots into the sludge that accumulates at many toll lanes.

It holds $1.70 if you put dimes in the penny slot.

Looks like you may have to spring for the McGill dispenser. :)

There's not any toll booths near here. But I carry a handfull of quarters in a ziplock bag located in the right glovebox. Handy for soda machines, emergency money, etc.

Good idea! I found something else that works for me, for dollar bills. Bought a motorcycle cigarette case (leather, with a little holder for a lighter). I put the dollars in there and still have room for my personal "business cards".

I used Velcro to stick it on the space between the handlebars (the flat part in between the bars themselves). Works really well! And fits in with Sushi's "cruiser" image. 8)

Me, too... I actually have a "free" portion of the NYS Thruway to travel for my commute - but still have to go thru the *^&#@! Toll Booth... I need to open the glove box, stick the toll card in, then when getting off, gotta stop at the toll again and hand the card back in, sans $. I'm looking for a more convenient way to stash the stupid card than having to open the glove box each time...

It looks like a handy little holder if you need that sort of thing.

Fortunately, here in Washington, toll roads are illegal. The only real exception is the State Ferry System, which could be considered a moving road, but I rarely have to take one of those.

I remember riding south through New Jersey several times back when I lived in Connecticut. Quarter toll booths every few miles. What a pain in the neck!

In contrast, I was traveling the New York state throughway a few years ago. Stopped at a toll booth and they waved me through. No toll for motorcycles. Cool.

I had one of those coin holders on the handlebars of my 1982 Suzuki GS650E (which was my last Suzuki prior to 2003). Somebody stole it off of the bike when I left it for service at the dealer in New Haven, CT. Never bought another one. Not much need for one where I live now. That was one reason I quit riding Suzukis. That dealer was located in an area of the city where you would be more comfortable with a handgun clipped to the handlebars...
