All year long Harley Davidson is celebrating 110 years of freedom with a global celebration that will connect millions of fans who are truly united by a common bond. In fact, on June 16th, thousands of riders rode into Vatican Square hoping to be greeted and blessed by the Pope himself. The Vatican police were actually loaned two white classic Harley Davidson motorcycles to ride during the event.

As Pope Francis drove through the crowd in an open-top Jeep he blessed the crowd that was filled with leather clad Harley Davidson riders. Italian tire manufacturer Pirelli also took part in the celebrations.

All across the United States and the world, special events are happening to celebrate Harley Davidson’s 110th Anniversary.

This Labor Day weekend promises to be the best thing that has happened to Harley Davidson riders in decades, and Jim and I are hoping to participate, albeit it may be virtually. I couldn’t think of a better way to kick off another, “Travels with Harley,” than to take a road trip to Wisconsin for Labor Day weekend.
