California Express Lane Transponder

Anyone that lives in Southern California or even North California that owns one of those Express Lane Transponder? We now need a transponder to get into the carpool line (110 and 10 fwy). No exceptions.

I just got mine today, Metro suggest to place the big square thingy on the windshield. It looks like a white tumor sticking out of my windshield. I was wondering if anyone can share where they place theirs? A photo would be awesome and greatly appreciated.

Update. Let me add a picture on how big this looks.

Re: California Express Lane Transponder

Where does it say that we need the transponder? I live in San Diego and car pool lanes all are motorcycle approved. The only time I need the transponder is if I'm going on the full toll road, in which i usually have it in my backpack.

Motorcycles can use all the California freeway Fastrak express lanes for free without a transponder.

Motorcycles no longer need FasTrak transponders to use ExpressLanes | Metro's The Source

One persistent mistake I see riders make when trying to ride faster: Using too much lean, too late in the corner, well after the apex of a turn. This is precisely where you want to be on the gas not increasing lean. Remedy: use reference points for tip in and use a strong countersteer input to quickly flick the bike to max lean at tip in
Add lean angle or power, never both

Thanks for the link. The express lane went live today and at the same time, they stated no transponder is needed anymore. I guess enough rider complaint about it.

At the moment, it is 110 and 10fwy. Once they see the money Ca can make, I'm pretty sure it will be everywhere.
