Owner of Tsunami-Tossed Harley-Davidson Found in Japan
Harley-Davidson representatives in Japan have identified the owner of the motorcycle lost in last year’s tsunami but later found on a remote beach in Canada.
The 29-year-old owner, Ikuo Yokoyama, lives in Yamamoto, Japan, in Miyagi Prefecture, the region hardest hit by the 2011 Japanese earthquake and tsunami. Yokoyama survived the disaster but lost three family members and is still living in temporary accommodations.
In an interview with Japanese station NHK, Yokoyama says he is thankful his motorcycle was found by British Columbia, Canada, resident Peter Mark.
“I found out at night from a friend and it kept me wide awake,” Yokoyama tells NHK. “I would like to thank the man who found my bike in person.”
According to CBC News, a Harley-Davidson spokesperson is making arrangements to ship the lost motorcycle to Japan to be restored for Yokoyama.
When asked if he had anything to say to his motorcycle, Yokoyama laughed and said: “”Thanks for coming back buddy.”
