Dubai creates elite all-woman biker squad

Dubai creates elite all-woman biker squad, gives them GSX-R1000s











Six women from Dubai's Department of Protective Security and Emergency have been chosen to form the Gulf region's first all-woman quick response team. Quite frankly we're awed. Handpicked as personal bodyguards for ministers, heads of state, political figures like the late Benazir Bhutto and pop stars no less than Beyonce Knowles, each officer has been specially military-trained in counter-terrorism, 9mm marksmanship and anti-riot control.

Dubai being Dubai, these officers can't be on rickety scooters. They have to keep up with all those Bugatti's, so they get black Suzuki GSX-R1000's for patrol bikes as well as the standard slow-poke Yamaha 1200's with panniers, horns and lights.

Sadly, everything in the photos tells us the bike part of this squad may be more style than substance. The most blatant offenses are the giant sticker directly in the line of site while tucking and the absence of goggles so the officers can see while riding at speeds exceeding 15 mph. We could be completely wrong though, and are willing to concede that things like eye protection, proper helmets, combat armor, gloves and wearable communications equipment may have been ditched for their glamour shots at the request of the photographer.

Regardless, creating an all-woman rapid response team with deadly officers, giving them cool uniforms and hoontastic GSX-R1000's for patrol bikes is way cooler than our middle-aged officers on slow over-weight Harley's.

I'm glad someone took the time to teach her to lock her elbows on the 1000.

It's the middle east, after all

Probably the only police squad that can be stoned to death for looking at a man.

Ahmed's Angels? What happens when they crash without gear, or get in a gunbattle against automatic weapons? Their jockey helmet and 9mm pistols might fall just short of the mark...

They just send in wave after wave of their women, until the kill-counter of the road is full. Then they realize, that it was just a misunderstanding

They certainly have the edge on surprise... better if they had tearaways: after jumping off the bikes into bikinis.

How much is the fish?

The war is not meant to be won. It is meant to be continuous. The essential act of modern warfare is the destruction of the produce of human labor. A hierarchical society is only possible on the basis of poverty and ignorance.
