The Motorcycle Tree

Motorcycle Tree

No April Fools here.  Those are real motorcycles in a real tree, and I saw it with my own eyes (which are also real). The story goes that a bunch of bikers would get together for a yearly celebration of some sort, and would always burn a bike.  Then, they threw the burned-out skeleton into this tree, which neighbors our maple-syrup making friends.  After several years of this ritual, the tree ended up looking like this.

I just thought it was cool.

  1. You must be April foolin'! Your eyes can't possibly be real! But if you are actually being serious and your eyes do, indeed exist, then I totally believe in the motorcycle tree, too. We don't have those in Poland.

  5. THat would be so cool to see!
    A guy in a neighboring town built a stone henge out of broken cars in his yard. It was pretty awesome looking until the city made him take it down.

  6. I am loving this! Makes me want to start a special tree. Maybe a sneaker tree, with all my old running shoes!

  7. That IS pretty cool! Although, I feel kind of bad for the tree. It seems like it would be hard to support the extra weight.

  9. And I thought the shoe tree in Minneapolis was cool—this just blows my mind! But how do they get them up there??

  10. Impressive they got them up there. Seems easier to plant a motorcycle and wait for it to grow into a tree.

  11. That's pretty cool that no one has bothered them, but allowed them to remain on the tree. I like the sepia-ish picture too.
