    I've stayed out of trouble for many years now. BUT, I do NOT want to end up on Napolitano's list. :eek1

    If that's the case you should have called this the "Global multi-grab wild card game".

    One of the local inmates was detained at a military base a few years back attempting to grab the Virginia tag that was placed in a "no camera" area near the entrance to the base. I think he spent three-four hours with the MP's. Had his Bike, laptop & camera searched. He DID get the tag shot...which is all that really matters right? :evil

    That's pretty hardcore for a tag. I like to stay off the radar as much as possible. What people don't know or never see doesn't hurt them (or me). :evil

    The tag is an aircraft...the tag getter should get an aircraft. Rockets don't meet commonly held definitions of 'aircraft'.

    Let it sit. Someone will eventually get the right tags.

    So I've figured out that this game is just plain evil. Not only did it piss me off and trigger my OCD that I couldn't find a public static display anywhere nearby (I spent a good 8 hours searching the internet for one) but it's enabling my tagging addiction....multiple grabs in the same game means more seat time.

    Instead of sleeping tonight I decided to go out into the frigid night and grab all these tags at once. 200 miles of back roads under the stars at ~32 degrees in the middle of the night. (That be 5 hours in the saddle dodging deer and drunks tonight).

    I got to my first tag (68 miles into the ride) and realized I didn't have a blue towel handy. So I substituted what I did have, a blue cambelback bladder that I draped on my windshield for each photo, not that you could see it in most of them but if you look closely the shadow is there. [[[Could be considered blue cloth when you consider that most cloth is now synthetic polymer instead of natural material]]] It was the best I could do in the middle of cotton country in the dead of night without a flashlight handy or another person to hold it and illuminate my bike.

    1) A Watertower: This National Register water tower was Raleighs first...erected in 1887. Photo taken at the base as can be seen on the website. http://www.nps.gov/nr/travel/raleigh/wtr.htm

    2) Static display aircraft/helicopter: I grabbed this one time before for the NA wildcard game. It's a Matador out in BFE Pikeville NC. Both a rocket and an airplane, this hybrid long distance surface to surface missile uses a turbojet engine for propulsion once airborne and a rocket to get off the ground. If there is any question as to whether or not it's an aircraft, the air force originally referred to them as "bombers" and gave them a specific aircraft designation B-61.

    3) A Clock Tower: NCSU Campus

    4) A Shooting Range: Personal Defense and Handgun Safety Center - Tryon Rd in Raleigh. Good folks. Good range.

    5) A Dragstrip: Dunn-Benson Dragstrip. It was really strange driving up on this as it sits right in the middle of a populated rural neighborhood. Finding it was kind of fun. Got lost on the way there from the Static Display grab. Ended up riding through Bentonville Battlefield then getting a bit freaked out as a state trooper came up on me doing what must have been mach 20, passed me in a cloud of dust, and sped off into the horizon still doing mach 20. http://www.dunnbensondragstripinc.com/

    1) A food delivery vehicle

    2) A service establishment that specializes in catering to motorcyclists. Examples: a biker bar, a biker campground, a biker restaurant. Anyplace that isn't motorcycle sales, parts, or repair but makes it a point to welcome those of us who ride.

    3) A person responsible for directing traffic such as a traffic cop, crossing guard, or flag person on a construction site.

    4) Something with the same name as an immediate family member (can use any part of their name, proper or surname).

    5) A stop light (illuminated) or stop sign.

    File Prevention Item: Helmet on the seat.

    Due to the fact that they are said to have been flown remotely, I guess it is good -

    The Matador, originally designated as the B-61, the USAF's first "pilotless bomber," it was similar in concept to the German V-1 (Buzz Bomb) of World War II. The Matador was launched by a booster rocket from a mobile 40-foot trailer and was controlled electronically from the ground during flight. Immediately after launch, the booster rocket fell away and the missile continued on course to its target, powered by its jet engine.


    The hardest thing on the new list for me is a biker specific place. Does somewhere, other than a bike shop or such. that, had dedicated motorcycle parking count?

    Here is the new list:

    1) a LARGE satellite dish - not a home, DirecTV kind of thing, but one of the 10' diameter ones (or thereabouts)

    2) a brewpub/micro brewer/local (if you're in that part of the world)

    3) from the top deck of a multi-level parking structure

    4) in the US, a baseball field, - which is fine for the rest of the planet if you've got one, otherwise, an outdoor sports field

    5) with a domestic animal in the picture - cat, dog, guinea pig, etc.

    File photo prevention item: a paperback book on the seat or anywhere on the bike that makes it visible in the picture
