I went with the Euro oval stickers, even though some will say they are almost played out. I like to think of my XT as an adventure bike, and figured a couple of these were required.
I'm not positive where I'll be putting them, but they fit pretty nicely on the sides of the bags, so there's a good chance that's where they'll end up. I'll be replacing the rectangle OEM reflector with some 3M reflective pin striping.
Best price I could find by far was at http://www.makestickers.com/, with a choice of two sizes (I went with the smaller) as well as free shipping. I placed the order at 11:00am, and it had shipped out by 4:00pm that same day, so I can't say enough about them!

I had an EBR (ErikBuellRacing.com) version made up too.... but I decided to hold off on that one.
Hopefully he makes some Uly 'off-road racing' type accessories that I can order, and then add that sticker as well!

I like reflective pinstriping - have it all over my bikes
...'course, you coulda killed 2 birds with one sticker, so to speak, and gotten 'em printed on reflective vinyl...
FWIW, you may be better off putting the decals on the smooth silver part of the bag. I've had bad luck getting things to stick to the rough finishes. If that's where you HAVE to have it, give it a good wipe with rubbing alcohol or brake cleaner first to remove any oils, and the stuff oughta stick better.

Thought about that, but at 4 times the cost, it wasn't worth it to me.
