Abu Harley

Last night, as we were packing up and leaving the exhibition centre, I noticed many police cars and wondered what had happened.  This morning, I read in the paper about an event around 8pm last night by Abu Dhabi Police.  I then saw this guy on a Harley - flashing police lights and all - coming into the hotel.  I took these shots and couldn't believe my eyes!  This is ridiculous - I thought.  Why would a police department do this?

Having read  their website this evening, I like the approach of the law enforcers: to join and understand a hobby rather than fighting unknown.

Is this someone from 'American Chopper'?

Update: The rider is Paul Teutul Sr.

I like that first one - the flowers, the composition. Very cool.

It is an Eagel not a Harley.It is a cool & bold idea from AbuDhabi police to mingle with the boys but can not serve any sustained police work round the clock specially in Abu-Dhabi.A nice PR

@ ghphoto
Your project sounds difficult! All the best.

@ 3azeez
No AC - but a complimentary hair dryer :)

@ Adrenaline
Sorry - I had to get to my flight. No more.

@ Mathai
True! I had no idea who he is - but seeing the two police-car escorts made me take notice.

@ zunoq8
I have no idea about this bike - but it certainly looks great.

@ iheartfilm
Thanks :)

@ James
Sorry... Not (yet) a bike man.

Fantastic motorcycle! Didn't know they had one made, and its always about PR with these guys!

Still great that they do have events such as these!

I hate that guy. And a convoy just for him? Pfftt... That's overrated.

Nice catch nonetheless.
