A policeman from Aceh as police chief of Bali, and near naked tourists on motorbikes.
In June 2008 the new police chief of Bali, Tengku Ashikin Husein, after only being in the job two weeks admitted he was shocked to visit Kuta beach the first time and see tourists who were weren't wearing clothes, meaning only bikinis or swimming wear.
Gee there are a lot of tourists without proper clothes on. They even travel on motorbikes like that!
Husein, who was previously police chief of Central Sulawesi but hails from Aceh by birth, said there should be a regulation against people riding motorbikes on main roads when near naked.
This is just too much. Sure, they wear helmets, but it's rude if they don't wear clothes.

However by April 2009, after questioning his subordinates and finding out that no regulation existed that required proper attire when riding, except helmets, he instructed traffic policemen to scold the near naked tourists, and keep a few t-shirts on hand to make them cover up. He made a joke:
The t-shirts are meant for foreigners, if locals find out about it they will deliberately ride around near naked so they can get a free t-shirt. Then we'll go bankrupt.
More seriously he added that what attracted tourists from all over the world to Bali was not only it's natural beauty or unique traditions but also its holiness. This holiness had to be protected by the police: kompas
Let's free Bali from things that spoil it, like free sex, drugs, and near nudity on the roads.
