I agree with you.
I was told the same thing. I do not recall whether my bike is registered with Sunpass and linked to my account. I thank you for the reminder to register the bike. I will sign on and do that.
I don't actually ride often where there are tolls, but it certainly makes sense to register the bike and thus save time and money -- I do not see a reason against such registration.
(a few minutes later) Well, I registered the bike and all went well. I will ride the bike as if it bears a transponder, which it doesn't. The only time I rode with a bike equipped with a transponder, the Sunshine State Skyway (southbound) did not notice the transponder, so the other biker was substantially delayed; meanwhile I paused, paid cash, was thanked, and went on my way. Result: I was ahead of him, but thought I was behind him, so I hurried to catch up ... we found each other at the ramp to the rest area.
I think the Q-tips at the wheel are a lot more predictable than the jerks in the pick-em-up trucks. I had a lot of trouble (see these scars) with an idiot who stopped for a stop sign, then backed up 50 feet. During that event, the employee with him, paid to get out and watch during *ALL* uses of reverse, was sitting on the front seat. The total age of those two idiots was less than the average age of a Sarasota driver; come to think of it, I will be at that age in a few years if I survive.
Thanks for the pointer to Tropics Software Technologies, Inc. If I decide to seek employment (not likely, but ya never know!), I will knock on their door.
