Skip to comments.'Alpha Dog' is at it again! Putin leads biker gang in his latest macho photo opportunity
Posted on 08/30/2011 8:00:55 AM PDT by AfricanChristian
Politicians will usually kick off an election campaign with a rousing speech, a meet-and-greet handshaking session or a nice photo opportunity kissing a baby. Unless, of course, they are Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, who joined a biker gang and led them on a testosterone-fuelled motorcade. Over-revving the engine as he sat astride a three-wheeled Harley Davidson, the former KGB tough man looked both ludicrous and very much at home in the latest of macho stunts that have punctuated his political career.

Um. Yes. That he is. ;)
And .... if you ask me, I think he’s NOT afraid of Red Bare and RB knows it...
I like that.
I doubt he’s afraid of anything.
[testosterone, power and leather...bottle it and sell it!]
Not weird at all when considering the culture of Russia. They love him for it. Putin has always been active as this. What is different is that OUR press is publishing it...makes you want to go hummmmm.
That’s a great shot...whose the guy looking down at Putin? Big dude he is! Caption should read:
Putin: “Yes of course you can come work for me!”
Note: All three guys standing along side are NOT looking at Putin.
That’s Alex. He’s my new best bud, no matter WHAT Salamander says...
“I was in the KGB, you know: Mr Putin looks remarkably relaxed as he faces _Alexander Zaldostanov_, the imposing leader of the Night Wolves.”
He looks like a deer in the headlights to me....;D
[I’d be looking up in stupid-eyed worship]
Don’t *make* me fight you for him.
You will not win.
I’m small, fast and treacherous!
Ol’ Alex is a he-man next to Putin....great shot...and you’re right Putin looks caught in the headlights. But I’ll bet money at the end of the day Putin respected the guy...and vice-versa.
I have friends in Ohio with Harley’s and other bikes as well. Use to date a fellow for awhile who surprised me when he drove out of his garage with a Harley under him...asked me if I wanted to ride...’You bet!”
First time I rode...loved every bit of it...wondered how I’d handle riding behind a man I hardly knew. But quickly learned riding is like dancing with a man...tune into his lead and it’s smooth riding all the way!
I’ll buy half that premise, anyway....;D
Ach. Sal.... come ON!
Oh yeah..the few times I’ve rode on one... I could get hooked REAL FAST.
But I’m too putzy to trust myself to actually drive.
And on that, I log off.
Sweet dreams you two....
Mine. All. Mine.
In your dreams.
Love that video, although it makes me remember how much how much I liked NIN before Trent got buff and started wearing a buzz cut.
WOW!!! What a great day I’ve had!!!
Hope yours was well!
Oh, Alexander said to say hi....
He did what?!?!?!!?
Oh, the humanity.
He was so hot.
He’d have really looked bad ass rolling in on The Reaper.
Imagine O’Bummah hanging with these dudes.
He’d p*ss himself, especially when they set bikes on fire and ride them into the river.
[Alexander’s club name is “Surgeon”. Heh.]
I’m officially inviting you to Sturgis next year!
[or even better, our local “East Coast Sturgis”...the hillbillies will love him]
Surgeon? Yessss! I LOVE it!
We can find a trike for Bambi at Toys ‘R Us, can’t we?
(He’s such an idiot he’d probably be proud of hisself)
I just reread your last sentence(s).
Yeah...hillbillies and o’Bambi...shoot, I’d be there like white on rice to see THAT!
Bless you sir bump! Do they get a full tank when they buy one of your trikes? More than just curious ... ;-)
It’s a real event with a LOT of hillbillies hanging out.
I’m sure you [but not O’Wussy] would have a great time.
Hubby’s the sir..I’m just ‘the ol’ lady’ and sometimes they get a tank of gas, depending on whether Himself built the bike here for them instead of them taking home the kit and putting it together, themselves.
[he gasses it up for test rides]
Nice find! Now, what about the other thigh?
Indeed... Alexander and I WOULD have fun!!!!!
We'll be getting one soon.
My bad, I ruined it for you. I thought you knew. His hair is much longer in that picture than the last time I saw him though. When I said buzz cut, I wasn’t joking.
