Just finished reading this months Newsletter, always interesting but......you've left the answer to one important question "hanging".
How did the Goldwing end up in the tree?

:) If you look closely, you can see one of the branches is growing THROUGH the trunk. This old bike was placed on top of the tree, and the tree, in the process of growing, lifted the bike up into the air.

That pic makes me sad... That looks like it was a beautiful bike...

Is there a chance it's photoshopped?
Where are we going, and what's with this basket?

I am going with photo shop, or the bike was lifted into that position bu some means. There is evidence that the tree has been pruned at some point. Also given the size of the tree, and and if I recall right trees grow from the top and would not lift the bike that high. It may grow around the bike engolfing it at the bottom but not lift it. Also the bike is in too good of shape to be in a tree that long...........Just my take on things
