bike number labels, where?

Just joined NESBA and now need bike number decals. Any suggestions on where to get them? Saw this topic covered before a while back but could not find it in the search. Thanks in advance.
Also, when I joined it did not give me any problems taking my requested number. Safe to say everything is cool and it is not taken or should I wait a few days? No rush obviously, it is still winter

There is a nesba bike number thread, but it's not a big deal if you have the same number as someone else.

Talk to gkotlin about numbers, he's the man.

NESBA doesn't care what your number is, there can be 10 people with the same number its just a easy way to track you on track (green bike, #567) vs (that green bike)

Yeah, drop me a PM if you need something. Nesba just wants you to have your favorite number (except 1-10) on your bike. It's easier for the corner workers if you have numbers. You can have any 2 or 3 digit number you like. There are usually 2-4 number "11's" in the B group on Blue and White Gixxers on any given day.

For a list of numbers out there if you wanna be unique, here are the list of CLSB members numbers: https://www.chicagolandsportbikes.com...ad.php?t=40534

You can use any number that you wish, we would hope that you would not use any of the retired numbers.

But what if Jason Farrell wants to come to a Nesba day... does he have to add some numbers ? #1!

He doesn't run the #1 plate. Irrelevant!

But according to the rule book. Yes.

I suppose he could just say screw you. Catch me and pull me in

We're not that picky about it. But if you (Germany) show up with one of those numbers now, you will fail tech. haha

I'll let you know if you...

A) make me some yellow plates

B) Bump me to I ( you might get multiple chance to do this as I plan on riding RA entirely too much with NESBA)

A) OK

B) I don't bump you to I. You bump you to I. I just do the paperwork when I see a solid rider who's ready to bump up.

I have crappy (the quality, not you) video of you at Road America if you want a copy.

Yeah, I thought I was all cool and shit when I picked 691 for my number. Then I got to the track and hadn't even taped my lights or mirrors, and then trying to get blue painters tape into small enough strips for a 6 and 9 as I'm also hung over as shit before tech was not the way I envisioned starting doing trackdays LOL

Yes, 3.154149 1/4

But thats why 1-10 were reserved. For special people and super cool bikes.

The PI bike will always be special.

It's for sale, wanna buy it? All the skill is built in. Just turn the throttle.
