Pope Francis just beat out practically all of his predecessors in the cool scale (some of those early popes were pretty badass though). The pontiff on Sunday blessed thousands of Harley-Davidson motorcycles and their owners during a parade to celebrate the 110th anniversary of the company. Bikers decked out in their trademark leather Harley vests crowded into St. Peter’s Square, with their engines nearly drowning out the “Our Father” prayer said in their honor. There are tens of thousands of Catholics in the Vatican for a two-day pro-life rally, which was the centerpiece of Francis’s mass on Sunday.
