Post decals

Hey all, I'm looking for a solution for my post decals. I purchased an America but I don't want to put my decals on the forks. I bought a dart fly screen thinking well I'll put it there but it looks really good. Any ideas?

I have mine on my fork, but if that's not what you want, you could get some thin aluminum and cut a plate. Mount it using the caliper bolts or something similar.

Army still using decals?

back in the day I made myself a mounting plate and put mine under the the bottom triple.

most of the gatekeepers hated it due to it being in direct line and directly under the headlight.

should be simple enough to do something similar but perhaps mount it lower and on the side of the frame. perhaps even with a hose clamp on the frame???

Yeah my new forks aren't gettin that crap on em...
If you have insurance, msf card, registration, with ur ID when goin through gates, you shouldnt have to have a sticker. Kind of a pain but its also a 3+ hr wait for stickers at my base haha

If any decal glue gets left behind is pretty easy to get off. I'm not sure what the big deal is?
I've had one on my bike since it was new, and since there's always a decal there, it doesn't matter if any glue gets left on the fork.

Nah, JBLM requires it to enter. They just got rid of the expiration stickers but they still issue the dod and post name decals.

visited whiteman last summer and they don't either.

I use a plate ordered off ebay cheap. It's bolted to the inside part of my pillion peg.

Find the size of your decals and search "decal plate (+size) " on ebay.
