Here's the trick... you'll love it, and it's legal.
Get an I-Pass. DO NOT CARRY IT ON YOUR BIKE, but make sure to keep your account number handy. Register both your car, and your bike to the account. Run tolls all you want, go through the I-PASS only lane. If you get stopped, tell the officer that you have an I-PASS, give him the transponder/account number, mention that you stop by every other week to pay whatever doesn't register (by the way... cops will almost never stop you for running a toll in the I-Pass only lanes... they rely on the photo system).
Now: here's what happens. When you run the toll, a picture will be taken of the back of your bike (or car). After 5 violations you will be sent a notice in the mail. The front of it will show that you owe all the tolls + $20/violation. The back will say "If you have an I-Pass - just pay the tolls". Take that paper in to the I-Pass center, pay your $5 in tolls, and go about your business. Typically I get 3-4 sheets at a time (so like 15-20 violations).
Now, the final bit of this is the nice part. There are some highly reflective sprays you can put on your license plate that make photographing them near impossible. Use it! There's nothing illegal about using a slightly reflective substance on a motorcycle in an effort to increase visability. In the end, not only are you obeying the letter of the law; by paying for unpaid tolls every 2 weeks, registering your bike with the I-PASS center and tying it to a funded account, thus proving your ability and willingness to pay tolls, but you're also maintaining a larger margin of safety (tool booths are dangerous, especially for bikers sucking on the cagers exhaust).
As far as getting a ticket for speeding based on distance/time where time is judged by two independent entities which are relayed to a computer system... you may get the ticket, but you can get out of it VERY easily. The system has a margin of error greater than 10MPH, furthermore... computer systems can crash and proving "reasonable doubt" is so damn easy it's not even funny.
