    Hey,
    Currently there's a set up red 33's on the bike. After reading the rules I'm lead to believe I can't ride novice with red numbers (and I may not have been assigned 33 anyway but that's besides the point).

    Where do you get numbers printed once you are designated one?

    I bought my numbers from Mspeed. I've also seen them at Richmond motorsports and the Honda Centre.

    That's a killer deal compared to the other shops. I'll come to you for new numbers when (if :eek:) I get bumped up to Intermediate this season.

    I feel like I should point out that unless you get a single digit number you actually need to buy three sets of three numbers. I'm 829 and I needed three 8s, three 2s and three 9s for the front and both sides of the bike. So at the end of the day I was into Marbod for $15.

    Still cheap, but not $5.

    Sorry for peeing on your parade :)

    That's why Kramer, O'Toole, Schmidt, etc. always race so hard for that number 1 plate... Some people think it's for contingency money or some other ridiculous thing, but we know better.:p:D

    More incentive for people to get single or 2 digit numbers.

    But what the hey, $15 every once in a while won't break the bank. I suppose it could matter depending on how many time you throw it down the road.

    Right Tom? :D

    At least I can dream about it.:D If I stick around long enough and ride well enough hopefully one day I can wedge my way into a single-digit number.

    1 USD each.

    These are vinyl, not that thick plastic that leaves a gooey residue. Been using advantage design for years. Cheap, great quality and fast delivery.

    $3 US for 3 (front and 2 for the tail) plus shipping vs. $5, I would rather buy local and I am one of the cheapest in the paddock.
