Harley-Davidson To Place Tsunami Bike into Its Museum Collection

Some areas of Japan are still recovering from the tsunami that hit in 2011. The tsunami was an undeniable tragedy leading to a nuclear disaster at a nuclear plant in the coastal area and the loss of thousands of lives. One of the most amazing things to me that came out of the tsunami was the discovery of a rusted and battered Harley-Davidson motorcycle 4000 miles from Japan that was lost in the tsunami.

The owner the motorcycle stored it in an insulated cargo container and the cargo container showed up a year later and 4000 miles from home on the shore of the beach on a British Columbia island called Graham Island. Harley-Davidson offered to ship the motorcycle back to its owner in Japan, but the owner instead asked that the motorcycle be placed in the Harley-Davidson Museum as an homage to those that lost their lives in the disaster.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
