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.

This was and incredible journey for me this morning. Her photography was better than her story and her story was absolutely amazing! Thanks, dante, for thinking we might be interested. You were right!

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.

Spooky ! 300-400K people dead? And she rides a classic speed king. Long live the King.

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.

Default I'll pay for her first year.

Great idea Nplateau. But rather than a free membership from MO how about a gift from us MOrons to her.



So contact me MO and we can work out the details for her first years subscription. Anybody willing to cover her second year?

Best article I have read in a while. kind of like walking the earth after a nuke war and checking out the leftovers. Almost as good as hitting the Alaska trail.

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.
