Hmm, I'm not sure how you could call him "generic" but I guess your entitled to your opinion. Didn't mean to rattle any chains. Just trying to have some fun & do a little riding. I figured just about every country in the world had some type of war hero?.. I'm not picky and I definitely don't condone war so just give me what ya got... ( A Statue of some type. )

Fullcyc, I don't believe you rattled anyone's chains here; I think it's just a wee misunderstanding...

It appears to me that advNzEr is actually asking if a statue of an unidentified soldier, dedicated to all fallen soldiers of a particular war or nation will suffice.

ie: a "generic" hero!!

I wouldn't have worded it quite like that meself, but you have to make allowances for our Antipodean friends; they talk funny.





(That's me trying to star a war...)

Thanks for the clarification DOGSROOT... I totally took it the wrong way... My opologies...
I knew that sentence didn't quite make since to me. I think if he were to have use just one more word I could have interpreted it correctly.... " Will " a generic war hero do? & Yes,, that will work just fine...

I must be getting old...

Assuming that the grab works - here's the new challenge:

I want you to find a painted motorcycle (or a part of a motorcycle, as in my tag photo). Comic style preferred, but realistic paintings will work as well.

Works fine. You could have left it at a go-kart track and got three tags with one pic.

I was indeed thinkng about that.
There's another "open-air" go-kart track just a few km from the Fun Planet thing which I passed on my way back - so I thought about it a second time...
I just wasn't sure if the whole karting thing is so big in your neck of the woods.
And anyway I already had the painted bike of my favourite tyre dealer in mind, so I rode there.

Here specifically? I think there are two or three within about 10-15 miles...
