He was presented with the bike after blessing hundreds of Harley fans (and their bikes) in St. Peter’s Square.

The Pope has now announced plans to auction the bike off to raise money for charity.

Proceeds from the sale will reportedly go to organisations supporting the homeless – a cause close to his heart.

PopeWatch assumes it was inevitable.  A 77 year old man riding a motorcycle, unless he has many years of experience, is probably not a safe idea.  However, part of me would have loved seeing the Pope, riding American metal, charging into Saint Peter’s square!

  3. It warms my heart! Been a Harley fan for 60+ years. My dad and all my brother’s rode and three of my brother’s still have their’s. I however, have given up Harley’s and horses. I just look at them now. (Well I feed and take care of the horse)
