For anyone NEW going to Blackhawk this weekend.

Here is a tip for you, guaranteed to make your first time experience with NESBA better.

Ask the CRs and A group riders for help.

Ask anything. Feeling scared out there? Need help with your lines or body position? Don't know if you are doing something right? Need help with some mechanical stuff? We all have been through it are are can make your weekend better by providing help.

Look for guys with A stickers or CR stickers on there bike and go up and ask questions. I will probably be pitted across from Turn One Racing with the blue and orange gsxr and willing to help anyone out.

We talked Drama through his fears, and he came out on top.

But, he has a very good point, ask ask ask. Ask one, or ask them all. I found that trying to stick with one or two is the best technique.

OK, I'm one of those NEW people going to Blackhawk this weekend and I have a stupid question. During the event registration, I had to enter a bike number. I entered something off the top of my head (25). Does it mean anything, really, and does it have to be displayed on the bike somehow? I guess I can use painter's tape to make the number, but how do they make sure there are no bikes with the same number within the group? Where does it has to be displayed: front/back? Thanks in advance!

Your bike number that is on your wrist band must match the number that is on your bike. Don't worry about any other bikes and duplicate numbers among riders.

So it has to be the number that I entered during the online registration, correct? Thanks again!

From the manual...

- Bike numbers can be displayed either on the front or sides
of the tail section, or on both; at least 6 inches high with
no special background required (Intro excluded)

No, you can tell them at registration that you would like to be #1 and they will put that on your wrist band. The main thing is that the number on your wrist band must match the number on your bike or you WILL NOT pass tech.

BTW, if you put #1 on your bike you should be able to back it up...

Thanks, I think I'll stick with 25 for now... Or change it to 255, nice round number here.
