Harley-Davidson owners flocked to St. Peter's Square today for a chance to greet Pope Francis, and they came away struck by his friendliness and closeness to the people.
"To be here and see the Pope is absolutely amazing. He's so friendly, he's just so friendly," said Bob from the Lakeside, England chapter as he spoke to CNA June 16.
His fellow Lakeside member Harry agreed. "He's so friendly, and he comes to you," he commented.
A Swiss motorcyclist went even further in her esteem for the new pontiff. "For me, he is the best Pope now – Papa Francesco," said Simone from Lucerne.
