SEVASTOPOL, Ukraine, July 24, 2010 (AFP) - Leaving a cloud of dust in his wake, a black-clad Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin roared into a rally in Ukraine on a Harley Davidson and hailed bikes as a "symbol of freedom".

Putin drove into the rally of bikers on the southern Ukrainian peninsula of Crimea astride a gigantic three-wheeled Lehman trike conversion Harley Davidson motorbike, wearing dark glasses and waving his black gloved hands.

Cool, too bad Putin is not the POTUS and a strong supporter of the US Constitution and the beliefs of the Founders for individual Liberty.

For all his faults, Putin can certainly be one cool dude.

I dont trust the SOB but I have to admire his style. If I could throw back a couple of beers with any world leader it would have to be him. And Bibi too.

"Without any exaggeration you can say that a bike is a symbol of freedom," added the Russian strongman.

This is a shot across our bow, in the strictly cultural sense.

I could picture GHWB doing something like this.

He knows what looking like a wimp(Obama) does. Besides, wasn’t he KGB? I guess he’s not worried about his carbon footprint.

"It's the boldest, the quickest transport and gives the biker the sweet feeling of freedom," said Putin.

Another thug perverts the word "freedom" by pretending he cares about it...for anyone but those in charge anyways...just like U.S. Democrats.

Last time I saw legs like Obama’s, they were in a bucket of KFC. Putin should not have said that. Now the Obama cannibals will try to ban Harley’s.....

Fat chance....

Really a Harley? Man, what a patriotic
American Putin is. Reminds me of the
line comic Yakov Smirnoff (sp?) used
when he came to the US from the USSR.
“I just bought my first American car
......a Toyota.”

Really? I see them both as totalitarian thugs who will make claims about their motives in complete contradiction of their actions and show no respect for the rule of law in their machinations to increase their power and control.

Получите ваш двигатель под управлением
Голову на трассе
смотреть Приключение
И все, что приходит наш путь
Да милый ' пойти сделать это
Принять в мире объятия любви
Огонь все ваши пушки сразу
И взрываются в космос

Мне нравится дыма и свитлякив
Гром тяжелых металлов
скачки с ветером
И чётко, я нахожусь под
Да милый ' пойти сделать это
Принять в мире объятия любви
Огонь все ваши пушки сразу
И взрываются в космос

Как истинный характер ребенка
Мы были рождены, родился быть диким
Мы можете подняться так высоко
Я никогда не хочу умирать

Родился быть диким
Родился быть диким

Obama is an effeminate poseur destined for a single failed term in office. He couldn't pass himself off as a totalitarian thug if he wanted.

I agree about what you said about Putin.

Obama looks like a homo wuss that anyone including my neighbors 4 year old could beat up.

He’s not a puppet or a clown like Obama. I think Putin would put a bullet between your eyes and not blink.
