Harley-Davidsons are badass, we all know it. In this slideshow, we share with you some of our favorite bikes.

From world leaders to normal Americans, everyone can relate to what it’s like to drive a Harley-Davidson. Nearly all of these bikes have their own unique story. As you will see, leaders like Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani, and even Pope Francis have been associated with these bikes in the past. However, other Americans have had them stolen away and found decades later. The stories behind some of these incredible machines are extremely compelling.

Harley-Davidson is a true American company that has sold motorcycles in the United States for well over a century. They were founded in 1903 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and were one of the few manufacturers to survive the Great Depression. If that does not signify American resilience, I don’t know what does. Flip through this slideshow and enjoy an American pastime.
