Givi decals?

I received and installed my Givi E45 today.

It came with silver Givi decals and a reflector. Did any of you folks put the decal on? How does it look?

I didn't put the stickers on. Instead I cut white 3M reflective tape to fit, looks good and is added safety at night.

Thanks for the tip. Where did you get the 3M tape? Is there a standard size that fits, or did you have to cut the tape? Good idea.

Actually, I got a 2'x2' sheet of reflective white vinyl from a local graphics shop for $5, and cut it into strips. I made a mistake though, its not 3M. Its the same stuff they use to make the graphics for fire trucks and police vehicles. I actually had 3M tape on before and this stuff shines better. Plus the 3M tape is about $6 for a 2ft by 2in strip.

How about a Dakar instead of a Givi decal?
