Holy rider? Pope blesses Harley fans in Vatican.

Pope Francis blessed thousands of Harley-Davidson motorcycles and riders to the celebratory roar of V-Twin engines as he rode through the crowd in Vatican City. In the spirit of fulfilling dreams, Harley fans from all over the world took part in the pontiff's Sunday ceremonies as part of Harley-Davidson's 110th Anniversary celebrations in Rome.

"Our promise is to offer once-in-a-lifetime experiences that few other brands can fulfill," said Mark-Hans Richer, Chief Marketing Officer, Harley-Davidson Motor Company. "Having our customers treated to the blessing fulfills that promise of epic adventures." During the Mass, Pope Francis thanked everyone participating in Harley-Davidson's 110th anniversary celebrations in Rome. The four-day event closed Sunday night with a full program of music and entertainment at the Port of Ostia, Rome. The event marks the European leg of Harley-Davidson's 110th anniversary, a year-long series of global celebrations spanning 11 countries on six continents culminating in the company's hometown of Milwaukee in the last weekend in August.
