Pictured is a luchador who joined in labor protests against Mexico’s government after it closed one of two state-owned electricity companies. It does appear as if the riot police are firing on him.

    we need shields like that for the front of our bikes.

      Is it giving the finger? (I can’t tell from the pic)
      The protesters won. Hands down. The cops can do what they want but just look at this guy in his full glory. Charlie Sheen could not have done better. Viva whatever the dude is protesting.

        No finger, I think it’s the “stick it to the man” fist.

  • Kirill

    Man it would suck if his cape got caught in the belt

    • Taco

      “would suck” or “would be totally awesome”?

      • Kirill

        Depends on how good he’s got it tied around his neck.

    Speaking of novelty helmets…

    • Taco

      actually a Luchador Mask meets all Mexican DOT standards.

  • NitroPye

    Everything about this guy is awesome.

    I love the imagery :

    A lone Harley-Davidson (well, v-twin cruiser anyway) riding freedom fighter against the faceless hordes of tyranny.

    Even Steven Seagal couldn’t look this good

    Great picture, some guy in the background seems to be running towards him, hope he didn’t drop it in panic…
    It appears to be what we call here a flashball gun (rubber bullets, non lethal -if not shot in the head-), anyway with that awesome mask, they can’t do shit to him.

      Dude, he’s a luchador.

      He has all the gear he needs to ride, fight terrorists or survive a zombie/Guadalajaran mummy uprising.

      At least that’s what those Santo movies taught me.

  • slowtire

    Looks like he’s on his way to Sturgis.

    That dude is diesel. He looks like he could pickup that bike and fight with it. “Behold: Harley Blast!” *Vrooom!*

    The only thing that could make it better would be a flaming burn out.
