Pope presented 2 Harley-Davidson motorcycles

Catholic World News - June 12, 2013

Pope Francis has been presented with two classic Harley Davidson motorcycles, as the American manufacturer celebrates its 110th anniversary.

Continuing a publicity offensive in Rome for its anniversary celebrations, Harley Davidson plans to bring more than 1,000 motorcycle riders to St. Peter’s Square for the Pope’s Angelus audience on Sunday, June 16. The corporate sponsors hope to fill the Via della Conciliazione, which stretches from St. Peter’s Square to the Tiber River, with their motorcycles.

    Will the Harley hogs be renamed the "Popecycles"? Just asking!

    Phil, it is fairly obvious - Harness the Harleys, don chaps, and ride them standing, one foot on each seat.
