New Auxiliary Dash Panel

I haven't been able to ride for over 2 months due to major sickness. Got diagnosed with stomach cancer. Undergoing treatment currently. Not able to do much of anything.
I had started making a new dash panel for the KLR before being diagnosed. The project just lay there in my shop.
Doctor told me to try and be active. Not able to walk far, I decided to try and finish my project. Here's the result.

NOTE: No part of the original bike was drilled into, or modified. Everything can be removed back to original if necessary.

Sorry to hear of your illness, Larry. Here is hoping for a full recovery. I've kinda been missing your pic & vids, now I know why.

Looks like you have a little space left for the 'next addition'.

Thanks! I was thinking of a decal, matching the one on my front fender.

Decals

I did some scanning of decal sites. I couldn't find anything suitable.
I'm looking for a small dragon decal, measuring no larger then 2: H x 3" L (Horizontal position.)
Color orange , or red over clear background. Nothing comical in nature.
This will go on a black panel.
Trying to match, or come close to ones on my front fender.
