Industrialized Cyclist Notepad


1.5 million tons

…of tsunami debris, headed toward Canada.

Among the first arrivals is one ill-advised purchase by unnamed Japanese bachelor from Miyagi Prefecture.

“The door was ripped off it and I could see a motorcycle tire sticking out,” he said. “So I went closer and looked inside and saw a Harley-Davidson motorcycle.”

The bike was rusty, particularly on the wheels and handlebars, but the logo on the fuel tank was unmistakable.

“First I thought, this has got to be the craziest thing anyone has ever found,” he said.

“Then I looked a little closer and the licence had Japanese writing on it. The wall of the trailer had Japanese print on the tags. And the first thing that popped into my head was this is likely from the Tsunami in Japan.”
