Most likely second hand French Gendarmerie bikes. The script on the trunk box reads "National Police". They should be on GS's

You may be perhaps right on the 2nd hand aspect of the bike but just for information in Mauritania they also have a Police squad called "Gendarmerie" like in France (France has exported that in several countries)

I don't think it's vstroms. I saw this Suzuki in Paris, France last year. I think it's called "Freewind". I even took a picture:

Yes it is a monocylinder 600 freewind. Very good bike but not produced any more. The photo doesn't represent a police bike.

that is the suzuki freewind f650. after not getting much in the way of positive feedback from my post of the two cops on what i thought were vstroms...i started looking into the bike. the freewind f650 was built to compete with the bmws f650, and uses the same engine from the dr650. built from 97-2004. not sold in the usa.

Nice looking rigs...I would like to ride an RT-P at work but getting paid to ride anything aint so bad no matter what the bike. I've got some pics of my bike from work but dont have a smugmug account so I'll see if I can figure something out.

Thanks for the hook up alamedaK9. That was at rally/block party this last fall. Tommy clowers and Mike Jones did two or three FMX shows on the street.

The bike is an '02 ultra, big and heavy but comfy and it can haul a lot of gear. The new ones are a dark blue, which looks much better IMHO

Nice, a guy from work went to paris a while back and ended up hanging out wth the bike cops there for a day. He said that they have a whole garage stuffed with bikes. All sorts of BMW's dating back to the 40's I think.
