Two Harley Davidson motorbikes donated to PopeVatican City, June 13 - The Harley Davidson company has given Pope Francis two of its classic motorcycles to mark the brand's 110th anniversary.

On Sunday, hundreds of bikes will be allowed to park along the road leading to St. Peter's Square while the pontiff recites prayers.

Between 1,000 and 2,000 bikers are expected to fill St. Peter's Square for the Pope's blessing, the highlight of a four-day event in Rome to celebrate more than a century of Harley Davidson.
