Holy Davidson

I can't imagine why the Motorcycle manufacturer  thought to give the Pope a Harley last June ? 

A British Auction house has said that the  Harley-Davidson motorcycle which was given to Pope Francis by the manufacturer is to go on sale along with the popes Harley leather jacket next month in Paris.
The 1,585cc Dyna Super Glide was given to the pope in June to mark the 110th anniversary of the US motorbike maker.
The bike, which is signed by Pope Francis on the petrol tank, is expected to fetch between 12,000 euros and 15,000 euros ($16,400 and $20,500) when it goes on sale at the Grand Palais in Paris on February 6.
The pope donated the Harley in November to the Roman Catholic charity Caritas Roma and the funds from the sale will go towards the restoration of its Don Luigi di Liegro hostel and soup kitchen based at Rome's Termini railway station.
"We hope to be able to do both Pope Francis and Harley-Davidson proud by raising a significant amount of money for a very worthy cause."
Laughable :
It is reported that  
"Pope Francis, 77, is not thought to have ridden the Harley, a make well known for its use by motorbike gangs including the "Hells Angels"." lol
