The Harley-Davidson Motor Company has been around for 110 years, and riders have been taking their anniversary parties around the world.
Three days of international celebrations in the streets of Rome saw somewhat of a culture clash, as the Harley bikers met a surprising spokesperson.
"I salute the many participants of the Harley-Davidson motorcycle rally," said Pope Francis, according to AOL Cars.
This past weekend, Pope Francis blessed 150 Harley-Davidsons at a mass in St. Peter’s Basilica in front of about 100,000 to 150,000 people, the Harley-Davidson web site reported. The Pope rode through in the open-top Popemobile, amidst the roar of the motorcycles.
