This is one of the most remarkable riding articles I've ever read. The author is amazingly candid and accurate in her assessment of the situation (from what I know about it anyway). This is a tremendous piece and the author deserves kudos.

Wow, very powerful article. I'm heading to Belarus in a month. Would be interesting to see it in person but I won't have a bike so it wouldn't be as cool. Hey Elena, want to rent me your big Ninja? If not then just be safe and stay on the asphalt.

And we talk about ghost towns in America ? We have nothing to compare to this. The photos and commentary force you to stop whatever you are doing ... and just think ... about these people who have disappeared like smoke.

Very good indeed. It just goes to show how risky designs can pay off until the idiot factor comes into play. The Russians use a fundamentally unstable reactor design, and this is what can happen when an operator doesn't know what they are doing. Pretty serious stuff, and it makes you wonder what is happening with the dozens of nuclear reactors the Russian Navy can no longer afford to upkeep in their northern bases.

I saw this on TriumphRat net., What a trip to wander through some of those house's and buildings, It'd be like the Twilight zone or something.

Maybe one of these days the Russian people will get a break, so far all they've gotten is kicked from piller to post for the last 300 years.

Wow. that really stopped me in my tracks. I cannot even imagine the scale of isolation one must feel walking through Chernobyl. What a poignant article. Seriously, someone should contact Elena and get her to do some moto-journalism from Russia.
