It was ride on the mild side.

This weekend bikers had a chance to get their motorcycles blessed by Reverend Mark Estrop.

The event was organized by Hall's Harley-Davidson in Springfield, Illinois.

The Baptist preacher is no stranger to the joys of the open road.

He's been riding bikes for 40 years.

Reverend Estrop says he's impressed by how much the blessing is appreciated.

One of those bikers is Bernie Krueger.

He says his fellow riders could use a little extra help from "the good old dude upstairs."
