Tsunami motorcycle on display at Harley-Davidson Museum
The famous Harley-Davidson motorcycle that was lost during the March 2011 tsunami in Japan and later wound up on a beach in northern British Columbia is now on display at the Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
The bike, a 2004 FXSTB Softail Night Train
, drifted for more than a year across the Pacific Ocean before landing on Canadian shores last spring. Its owner, Ikuo Yokoyama, asked to have the motorcycle preserved in its current condition and displayed at the Harley-Davidson Museum as a memorial to those whose lives were lost or forever changed by the tsunami.
"We're truly humbled to display Mr. Yokoyama's motorcycle," said Bill Davidson, Vice President of the Harley-Davidson Museum. "This motorcycle has an amazing story to tell, and we are honoured to be able to share it."
