The biker blessing at the Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee on Sunday marked the start of motorcycle season. The blessing implored a higher power to keep motorcyclists safe on the roads. Milwaukee's own archbishop led the ceremony. He's not a hog rider himself, but the archbishop reportedly has driven a moped.
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne.
Keep holy my Harley. That's what a group of motorcyclists were asking for yesterday. The biker blessing was held at the Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee. Marking the start of motorcycle season, the blessing implored a higher power to keep motorcyclists safe on the roads. Milwaukee's own archbishop led the ceremony and while not a hog rider himself, the archbishop reportedly, at one point, did drive a moped.
