What I have used in the past is heat. A hair dryer on the low heat setting, then carefully and very slowly peeling the decal. Remove any residue with Goo Gone. I would be very carefull with one that large though.

A hair dryer is the best option. I use a regular heat gun. You have to be extremely careful with a heat gun. You also use a putty knife and as the decal begins to lift continue to heat a small area at a time. Do not get impatient. You can create problems where none existed before.
Once the decal is removed use Goo Gone to get any left over adhesive. Avoid using things like gas or laquer thinner. These can cause problems as well.

Man, these guys are great! Here is what my favorite Travel Supreme dealer said:

"There is no easy way. Heat gun and WD40 works about the best we have found. Wipe with WD first let set, heat [be careful not to burn] peel, use more wd to get sticky off.

Does take a lot of ice cold beer to do the job right. (If its me doing it anyway.)
Tell him to call me and I will trade him one for the the stickers that are not coming off.

Later, Dave"

I have Dave's phone number so let me know if you need to talk to him,

Dave
