4. Two Eagles
Goro is an American Indian, but he is also a biker. He started riding Harleys when he was in his mid-40s.
“Harleys are very powerful, it’s just so strong. The vibration from the bike is like a living heartbeat. It’s like a horse. I also ride horses but this is like an iron horse. If I ride it, I can go anywhere. Thats how I really thought.”
Goro also owned a motorcycle called Indian, which was a competitor of Harley Davidson in the early to mid-20th century that reigned in the United States. Goro owned several Indian motorcycles in Japan and the United States.
When Goro was 50 years old, he rode alone from Los Angeles to South Dakota for the Reservation Ceremony on a red 1937 Indian Chief.
“Indian Chief is wonderful. The vibration of the bike is light and fast. It is like an Indian drum. The parts are all handmade and each piece is beautiful. It is a work of art. I felt great and kept going. It was an adventure, my first great adventure in my 50s!”
When Goro arrived at the Reservation Ceremony in South Dakota, someone has spotted him and shouted.
“It’s Goro, Goro is back. He’s back riding on the Indian!”
It was Bow Little Sky, Goro’s nonbiological brother. He is a biker too.
Every August, Goro would go there and pitch his teepee and live there for three months. Whenever he and Bow would ride their bikes side by side across the open field of South Dakota prairie, Bow would yell,
"Two Eagles. I feel as if I'm flying just above the ground. Goro, we are Two Eagle!"
