Excellent on all counts!

Bonus points for getting the wildcard in addition to the original five.

Extra bonus points for choice of bike!

Grab

1) a bridge that spans a body of water


Closer up of sign:




2) an automobile that is no longer in production

Was looking for a cool, old Shelby Cobra or something and then decided I was just going to get a picture of my girlfriend's Saturn. Then I saw this and got more pissed off... No reason for the Ranger, Dakota, etc. to be gone.




3) a 4 story, or taller, building




4) a British, German or Italian motorcycle(other than your own)
Shop was closed, but it's a BMW/Husky shop - although it looked like they had more used CRF450s than Huskys, here's a WR300 and a TE310 through the window. Since it's Italian made and German owned, I'd like some bonus points on this one...




5) a road sign, or a sign on a government or commercial building(such as a restaurant, etc.), in a language other than English


closer:

New list

New list for 9/23/2012

U2 songs

1) An Cat Dubh - anything with a black cat in it - real or pictured

2) Zooropa - a petting zoo, a full zoo, like that

3) No Line on the Horizon - a shot showing a good view of the horizon

4) Into the Heart - a cardiac center or similar

5) Fire - either something burning, or alternatively since that may be tricky, a fire station

wildcard if you can't find one of the above - in this case, the I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For item - Even Better Than The Real Thing - find a Coca Cola ad.

That makes it 3 in a row for the red "V"!! I'd try and make it 4, but prior plans for tomorrow probably won't allow it.

Very nice job, wb. I think you've played this game before. I don't know about bonus points for the Husqvarna, however......since they started in Sweden.

Seven days? Too difficult? Need changes/alternates?

Not too difficult, but we've had a lot of rain here recently (more in the forecast, as well) and a couple of things on the list require a bit of a ride. I don't intentionally do rain when tagging. I ride in enough rain when touring.

I may not get to it this week either, because in addition to rain in the forecast, I have to put new shoes(Avon Storm 2 Ultra's) and change the oil and filter on the V, in preparation for my upcoming trip to your state. Btw, I will let you know when I'm scheduled to leave.

Grabbed when a 60% chance of rain turned into mostly sunny:
1)anything with a black cat in it

2) a real zoo

3) instead of a horizon view, I'm using the wild card here: a coca cola sign

4) a cardiac center

5) a fire station

That makes it 4 in a row for the red "V"!

CTFD in the photo for a fire station, stands for Chippewa Township Fire Department.

New multi grab up shortly.

Next items to find:

1) a building with a slate roof

2) a building with 2, or more, arched windows

3) a suspension bridge

4) a barn with advertising painted on it

5) a "free standing" clock tower

Wild card) a bus or train station, that's currently being used as such. You can use one, or the other, if you can't find one of the above
