First day of issue: Polizeiabschnitt / Open day of Berlin Police
This is the way the Artist/Kunstler from the Wedding neighborhood of Berlin DE sent these dreamy stamps to me, so this is the way Vleeptron is displaying them.
If you have a problem with this, then stand on your head.
Uwe Bressem has recently begun an art project intended to improve relations between the community and the police officers who maintain safety in the community.
I am guessing the motorcycle is a BMW (Bayerische MotorWerke?). Bob drove a Triumph himself.

Entwurf und Idee: U. Bressem 2006
A bear is the symbol of Berlin's coat of arms, and seems to be a pun/Wortspeil from the word for bear, Bär, or little bear, Bärlein.
BMW was a one-year-old manufacturer when it re-named itself Bayerische Motoren Werke GmbH in 1917, building engines for military aircraft during World War One at Oberwiesenfeld airfield in München / Munich, Bayern / Bavaria. Motorcycle production began in 1923, and re-started after World War Two in 1948.
In "The Great Escape," Steve McQueen steals a BMW R71 motorcycle.
