There’s 10 places on the bike where they paint green squares, in this photo there are seven; can you spot them all?

I can only see 6 :(
From this day to the ending of the world, we in it shall be remembered. We lucky few. We band of brothers. For he who today sheds his blood with me, shall be my brother.

The two that are easy to miss is on the back of the bottom tripple clamp and on the crankcase below the barrel...
