Yes, and it is large and artistic.

The arrow on the side points the same direction as the ones on each side of the chicken strip.

I'd say mine looks backwards as far as getting water out = Front E3 (Yes, I know it's worn)
How about laying on the ground behind the tire and see what your perception is?

I run Commander IIs on both my 99 and 76 Goldwings.
They made a HUGE improvement in handling over what
was on both bikes when I bought them.
