Every year around this time I see many photos coming from India where they are celebrating the Republic Day Open Republic Day in a new window. And not only do they do it in style, but for the police forces around the country, it is time to show their stuff (just look at a sample of the photos in the related articles below).

And their stuff usually consists on showing how the cops share their motorcycle by placing as many people as they can on one motorcycle and riding around it. Usually this results in pretty spectacular photos, like this one:
