Pope Francis, aka the coolest Pope ever on two-wheels, is auctioning off a Harley-Davidson Dyna Super Glide this February, and it can be yours (potentially). While we’re a little disappointed that the pontiff didn’t just don a skull facemask and head out on an adventure of papal proportions, we’re very pleased that the head of the catholic church is doing the second best thing, and auctioning off the American cruiser to raise funds for ‘Caritas Roma,’ which is a Vatican-based charity, working for the church, to help those in need.
Anyone interested in getting this blessed bike (and seeing what that could possibly entail) should make their way overseas to the Grand Palais in Paris, France on February 6th. We wish we could send one of our writers over to Paris to cover the event, but wouldn’t you know it, all our passports have freaking expired because we were too busy cruising around the United States this year and too busy to send in our legal documents. Now we’re kicking ourselves for missing what will surely be a once in a lifetime opportunity. I mean, how often can you tell people that you’re riding a literal holy Harley?
The bike is valued at around $20,000 USD, but the bike will be auctioned with no reserve. Though, let’s be honest, there is no way this hog is going for anything less than six figures. Which, is a good thing, as Caritas Roma will be using the funds to make some much-needed renovations to a soup kitchen and hostel named Don Luigi di Liegro. So, for once, we’re actually hoping this bike goes for a crap-ton of moolah. Though, having said that, we’re not sure how wise it is to talk about a Harley motorcycle (a blessed one at that) and use the word ‘crap-ton’ in the same article. Oh well, we’ll be forgiven, we’re sure (wink).
Until next time, folks, we’ll see you later!
