Girls with Guns, er, Motorcycles, er, Guns AND Motorcyles

Cuba Police Woman
Shocked I was when I first saw this. Cuban Police use Harleys!?! Then I poked around a bit and found that it's probably a Yamaha. Well, that makes a little more sense, but I would have expected something more along the lines of a 50 year old Honda Cub. Well, it is a Police State, and the cops do have important work to do, like arresting Jewish activists for smuggling illegal tech into the country so old people could talk to their grand kids, or something. Nothing worse than subversive activity. Just ask Joe McCarthy.

It's the tiny Yamaha Virago, only 250cc, can only do about 60mph.

I suppose the chain drive tipped you off. 250cc is more than enough for their uses. The fact that it is less than 50 years old probably intimidates everyone, which is the main function of police equipment.
