Sportster- If you want a decal like that, I would buy some vinyl sticker sheet at the craft store for a couple bucks and cut out the circle the size you want. I was thinking of doing the same thing.

Welcom Marion. I too have a 2005 RoadKing EFI Police Bike. FatCatAnna and I have been discussing a possible moto trip through the Smokey Mts perhaps this Fall. Anyone interested in a "Person w/ Diabetes Moto Trip"? I've been riding my own bikes for our 40 years . And I have done this while coping with T-1 Diabetes. It is possible, even on cross country trips. So rock on and happy trails, Jax

I joined the group because I ride with my husband and he is always worried about me being type 1 and going on long trips. I usually carry extra supplies and so far haven't had any issues. We have a 2005 Road King.

We do ride all year round though just add extra layers in the winter months.Went out for a ride last Sunday and the temp. was 30 a bit too warm with all the riding gear on but still good.
