NEWS FLASH: Pope Francis is a badass who owns not one, but TWO Harley-Davidson motorcycles.

BIGGER NEWS FLASH: He's auctioning them off for charity.

To get you up to speed, the Holy Father was gifted the two bikes by Harley-Davidson during a biker rally in Rome this summer, when 35,000 Harley enthusiasts rode into town to celebrate the 110th anniversary of the motorcycle company.

Roughly 800 of the riders went to the Vatican for a special blessing from the Pope, and during the event, Pope Frank was gifted two new hogs -- a 2013 Heritage Softail Classic (valued at $20,799) and a 2013 Dyna Super Glide Custom ($16,000).

Now Pope Francis has announced he's auctioning off the first bike to benefit a local homeless shelter. The second bike will also be auctioned off, but a charity hasn't been chosen for that one yet.

As for when the first auction takes place, that hasn't been announced yet either.

Amen.

Say what you want, Pope Francis is the right man for the job to run the Catholic Church. Amen Father. Just ease up on the Gays. My brother is one and I know he is going to heaven. They donj't make a better man and he is gay as Oprah. Keep up the good work Father.

He's talking the talk and he's walking the walk. The man is going to be shaking things up. He'll be good for the church.

The position of "pope" is a fraud. Its just a bunch of cardinals sitting around deciding who will be the boss of all of them, nothing more. Once they decide then every loser on the planet thinks this guy is the holiest man on earth.

I'm not into the organized religion game, but as pope's go this one is off to a great start, and definitely what the church needs these days is a fresh approach.
