Guys, I'm tired of staring at blank number plates on my bike. I was wondering what goes into getting a number assigned. When I raced BMX in high school, the ABA assigned you a number for your region when you got your membership. Is there something similar for the AMA or any other sanctioning body? I don't race yet, but I'm thinking about getting started when I get home to NM this spring. Part of me just says to pick a favorite number and slap it on there, but I don't want to have to take them off later if I get assigned a number for the local racing. Any thoughts?
