Everyone participating has probably read the rules governing their class dozens of times. This is a reminder that new rules for bike identification are in effect. Basically it boils down to making sure the volunteers and the tower crew can actually read your bike number as you head down course to break a record. Please take a look at the rules and make sure that you have numbers and bike class posted accordingly. We’re all hoping this will help make the whole event run better and we can get more bikes down the course and spend less time comparing notes on who might be on course!
2. K. NUMBER/CLASS IDENTIFICATION*
Motorcycle number and class identification on both sides of the
motorcycle are required for each participant. Numbers shall be
reserved with organizer. The number class shall be displayed
within a reasonably flat, smooth, vertical surface with a minimum dimension
of 7.5 in high and 10.5 in wide, with a maximum of 8.5in by 11in.
Motorcycle numbers must be a minimum of 3 in high and 1 in
wide. Class designation shall be a min of 1in high. Numbers/letters
shall not be shaded or outlined. The surface may be on the
motorcycle, or number plates may be used. Where used, number
plates shall have 1in radius corners, be securely mounted, meet the
dimensions and shall not extend beyond the rear edge of the rear tire.
Numbers shall be in full view and not blocked by the rider
when in the riding position. A change in rider/class requires a
change of numbers/class identification on the motorcycle.
