What about on a windshield?

I am SO glad that I found this thread!

I am definitely buying at least one set of the North America version in reflective for the back of my sidecar.
There is a perfect spot for it, a recessed area that looks almost like it was designed for your sticker set!



The recess is about 12" wide x 11" tall.
And I already have at least 24 states to fill in since putting this rig together in December of 2008!

My question is where to put a set on my R1150R?
I have both the City Lids & the Extra-Large lids which I swap back-n-forth on the saddlebags depending upon what I am packing. So that is not ideal.

My first thought was to put the sticker set on the lower part of the windshield.
That section is in front of the instruments, so I never look through that section for any reason anyway. And it doesn't get changed out when I alter my packing mode.

My concern is about having to clean bugs off of them frequently.
How durable will it be with being constantly exposed to wind, washing, all of those edges to catch while rubbing at the bug guts, etc...

What do you think?

I already need Western Canada and Alaska on that bike...

TIA for your thoughts/advice!
