We discussed this a lot last year (archibes). To summarize what I

1. Get the # off ASAP - as it sits, it becomes more permanent.
2. The # <will> eventually wear off.
3. They crayon is waxy & oily. It can be removed using
a. elbow grease & a brush & curry
b. baby oil
c. Goop hand soap
d. tooth paste
e. shaving (!?)

The sooner you start in on it, the sooner it will be off :-)

I also remember the discussion turning to premanent rider numbers. We
decided that it wouldn't be practical for ride management, but it sure
would be nice for the rider!
