Harley–Davidson from Japanese tsunami found off Canadian coast

Those Harley–Davidsons are tough. This one has made it across to the Haida Gwaii islands, British Columbia, Canada, inside a container that is believed to have washed offshore after the devastating Japanese tsunami of 2011.
   Beachcomber Peter Mark came across the rusting motorcycle, which had ventured 7,000 miles across the Pacific ocean.
   Authorities are currently trying to trace the owner. The number plates suggest the motorcycle is from Miyagi prefecture, one of the hardest-hit areas.
   Also inside the container were new golf clubs, tools and camping equipment, according to CBC.
   ITN says some 1·5 megatonnes of debris have crossed the ocean toward the Canadian west coast, out of a total of nearly 20 megatonnes.
