Military post Stickers...

I really don't like the idea of sticking the post stickers on the bike itself so I came up or thinking of using a plate and hanging it somewhere on the left side of the bike for the gate guards to see. Any idea on where would be a good spot for it ??? I appreciate your inputs and ideas... ride safe.

Many military riders I know mount a plate on top of the left caliper bolts. I have a removable aluminum plate mounted and shaped to follow the frame just below the air box.

I would first check with PMO or your local base MSF as it might be written in your base order where it is supposed to be mounted.

My local HD sells these plates. I have since bought one and put the state inspection sticker on with the same screw.

I originally put my decals on a piece of black plastic and attached it to the backside of the side-mounted license plate. I've since got rid of the side-mounted plate and went to the better rear fender-mounted plate holder, and I wedged the plastic piece with decals just above the radiator. You really can't notice it unless you really look but have had zero problems going through the gate.

My buddy bought some basic clamps at home depot and cut a piece of tin to size for his port authority pass. If you want to get fancy check on some of the mc parts sellers like dennis kirk or J&P Cycle sell billet clamps and chrome plates that bolt right up

Interesting. The Army has gotten away from using post decals, but when they did, they mandated placement to be visibly on the front left, a la the fork tube.

^ Yep, it just depends on the installation though. If you're overseas expect to have at least the DBIDs sticker on.
