We are here in Rome for Harley-Davidson’s 110th European Celebration, June 13 to 16.
Official oil painter for Harley-Davidson, David Uhl created this stunning portrait of a 48′ Panhead entitled “Chance Encounter” for the event. Participants will be able to buy a postcard print for 15 Euros to commemorate the 110th — and you can purchase a limited edition print of the painting now through August at the David Uhl Studio website: www.uhlstudios.com.
A series of unique Harley-Davidson 110th
Anniversary activities will take place across multiple sites in Rome for
motorcycle enthusiasts and fans to experience and explore including a bike
blessing by Pope Francis at Vatican City, and a 3,000-strong bike parade through
the history streets of Rome.

Rome has clean water, rich in calcium and lots of public drinking fountains like this one designed by the sculptor Bernini — you just dip your hands under the flow of water and grab a sip.
