Well, I grew up in California, and I enjoy almost all of the articles about it. I sometimes wish I still lived there.

Actually, the real motorcyclists don't let sissy things like a -15 degree windchill keep them off their bikes. The sissies live in "Cali" just so they can keep riding during the winter and then brag about how they "rode through the bitter cold of winter." California ain't that great.

I got the impression she had access to the place because she is a scientist. Her research projects and contacts allowed her to gain the permits needed get through the guarded roads. That is my guess anyhow.

What fascinating me folks (being Ukrainian and native Kiev habitant; ) is that all of you still call everything over Poland border - Russia....amazing....

Chernobyl is in Ukraine, country that about 50000 sq. km bigger than France and that actually have it's own language and culture, despite because of usual (and normal) situation with unifying own identity of Ukraine was supressed...

At this time it was still USSR, whish is again not just Russia....

It is Ukraine and Belorussia that suffered most of it, and somebody down the thread gave extremely correct description of what has happened - very stable design in hands of "easy going" bunch of people controlling station, people who did disregards safety measures during not even "extreme test", but regular re-start load /test!!!

BTW - MO, I think she did great piece, and I'd be proud to see such representation of our moto-society overseas

Someone needs to forward this lady and this article to National Geographic or perhaps Time or newsweek.



This will be something to think about for the next year or ten.

bluesman, most people in this country couldn't even identify states in our own country, much less know Belorussia from Ukraine. Kind of like an engineer I know that can't change his own spark plugs.
