The Pope received a Harley-Davidson a few months ago (see related below), and what does he do with it? You'd think he would go for nice leisurely rides around the Vatican, or the hills of Rome on his new motorcycle. But no, he didn't. He gave it away.
Okay, he gave it to a charity organization so that it could be auctioned off for a hostel for the homeless in Rome. A nice gesture and charitable. But what are they going to put as description for the bike? "Rarely used Harley Motorcycle. Used only by old man on the way to church on Sundays"???

Well, at least he still has the Ducati bikes given to him.

|Thursday, June 13th, 2013 - Harley-Davidson Is Blessed. Official|
#Pope #HarleyDavidson #Blessing - 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 and two Harley-Davidson.
But are we going to see the man ride around on one of them, wearing the black leather jacket?
|Wednesday, September 15th, 2010 - The Pope Gets A Ducati Motorcycle|
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.
