Guess Who These Guys Are





If you guessed that it's the Egyptian Police motorcycle team performing balancing tricks during the Police Day parade in Egypt on Feb. 16, 1979, then you guessed right.

For the sake of comparison, here's a more famous photo from a few months ago of the Egyptian police riot team performing their stomping-on-a-woman trick. Note that they still demonstrate a mastery of balance.

You'd never see the Shriners pulling this crap.

In all seriousness, I can only hope that Egypt makes necessary reforms.

I thought, maybe, they were the Cincinnati Sex Police Squad celebrating yet another roundup of local talent.

I guess I was wrong. :down:

In 1979, then I bet the current force cannot do the same thing now.
It is very cool!

Hamilton County, under Simon Leis, has speed boats, bag pipes, and kilts to fight art exhibits and bra ads in public newspapers but motorcycles are frowned upon--they cause too much of a sensation on the buttocks.
