    One of the first public appearances for the new motorcycles will be when the Highway Patrol Unit escorts Pope Francis on his travels throughout Philadelphia during the weekend of September 26-27, to culminate the World Meeting of Families Celebration.

    Similar escorts will take place in 2016 at the Democratic National Convention.
