PH2: Christ on a bike!
Pope blesses Harley tanks
To celebrate its 110th year anniversary, Harley-Davidson has had two petrol tanks blessed by Pope Benedict XVI. Yep, that's right, his holiness will be blessing then signing the tanks and Willie G Davidson (grandson of Harley founder Bill Davidson) and Bill himself will then add their signatures to the tanks. Once lacquered over the tanks will be fitted to bikes and one auctioned off to support the Good Samaritan Foundation charity and the other returned to the Harley museum in Milwaukee.
This bizarre publicity stunt is to help promote Harley's 110th Anniversary event which takes place in Rome on June 13-16.
What will HD sink to next?
Charity benefits, but........
And is Willie G still alive? The followers will probably now call him Saint Willie G of Milwaukee
Just noticed. Willie G isn't wearing his trademark Beret. Didn't recognise him. Probably had to have it surgically removed for the occasion....
Wonder if the Pope has a black leather outfit to match the white one.
Actually that photo above is screaming for a caption competition.....
...so, how about
Pope: Have you got one o'them bad Motherfeckers wit bad ass pipes & 150 brake horses in Vatican Violet?
Willie G: No surree Bob Pope brudder but we kin do Papal Poiple if ya wishes.
Pope: Lots of tassles?
Willie G: Sure whaddever ya Harleyness. Shucks I mean ya Holiness
