Vatican City – The Harley Davidson company decided to do something different to mark the brand’s 110th anniversary – it has given Pope Francis two of its classic motorcycles.

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

It is expected that between 1,000 and 2,000 bikers will 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.

More than half a million Harley Davidson riders and fans from around the world are expected to head to Rome for the event taking place between the 13th and 16th of June.

The entire length of Via Della Conciliazione, leading from St. Peter’s Basilica to the River Tiber, will be turned into a giant Harley-Davidson bike park.
