There are many occasions and events where a priest blesses a group of motorcycles. But this is more than a priest... it's the Pope himself. Pope Francis blessed 1,400 motorcycles, all of them Harley-Davidsons, who had gathered at St. Peter's Square in the Vatican to celebrate the 110th anniversary of the Milwaukee brand.

The Pope was even presented with two Harley-Davidsons and a black leather jacket. So now the Pope has two Ducati Multistradas (see related below) and two Harley-Davidson.

But are we going to see the man ride around on one of them, wearing the black leather jacket?

Miracle! The Pope took delivery of two Ducati Multistrada 1200 motorcycles, painted in the Vatican colors.

Amazing. Unfortunately, he's not going to ride them, not even as a pillion. They're for the Vatican police.
