Thread: What's behind your number?

    What's behind your number?

    With the scramble at the beginning of the season to retain or get "your" number, I wondered: What is the significance in the number you run? If you currently run 1-10, that's obvious - what's the significance of your other number?

    The results of this informal poll may make it into an ad for the club in Roadracing World this year. If for some reason you don't want your comment [possibly] used in the ad, just mention that somewhere in your post.

    Thanks in advance, I'm looking forward to seeing the replies!

    It was the lowest number available, all 3 digits numbers that mean something to me were taken. Conveniently it matches up closely with half my endurance team numbers.

    I want the most "1"s possible because it's easier to place on the bike and on the signs required.

    This ^^^. I used to have 171 but didn't renew one year and Dean took it. Then I just went to 151 because it was available.

    #948 - Highest 3 digit number that was backward compatible with AFM and as a rebellion to all the 2 digit number squatters...

    Me too! I'm always a bit bemused as I watch folks agonize over the 'available number list' when renewing at the track ...

    723 is my birthday.

    Daisy's 354 was actually stolen from me. 3 and 54 are the two numbers I have used in all the sports I have played throughout my life and what I wanted. She got her license first so she stole it.

    So, the number 354, yup I stole it! Well, sort of. I stole the "3" (If you call getting to something first "stealing" :big grin. The "54" is a very significant number for me and Michael. Yes, it was the number on his football jersey when we met, but it is also the number of days between our birthdays and the sum of our birthdates (31 and 23). At one point, even our driver's license numbers added up to 54. There seems to be a lot of good energy associated with the number 354, so I took it. It's called "winning".

    I chose 337 as my race number so that Beverly would know that it was me who had crashed and was upside down. 337 / LEE. Also, 13 seems to follow me around like a good friend. The sum of 337 is 13. My son Alex was later born on the 13th.
