Kidd of Speed

It's 1:30am and I'm unable to sleep, which is a bummer since I have a full day tommemorrow. So I'm visiting some of my favorite sites (and getting very irritated as my mac keeps fucking up with my typing).

One of my favorite Websites is Kiddofspeed - GHOST TOWN - Chernobyl Pictures - Elena's Motorcyle Ride through Chernobyl. This is how it starts:

"My name is Elena. I run this website and I don't have anything to sell. What I do have is my motorbike and the absolute freedom to ride it wherever curiosity and the speed demon take me.

This page is maintained by the author, but when internet traffic is heavy it may be down occasionally.

have ridden all my life and over the years I have owned several different motorbikes. I ended my search for a perfect bike with a big kawasaki ninja, that boasts a mature 147 horse power, some serious bark, is fast as a bullet and comfortable for a long trips. here is more about my motorcycle

I travel a lot and one of my favorite destinations leads North from Kiev, towards so called Chernobyl "dead zone", which is 130kms from my home. Why my favorite? Because one can take long rides there on empty roads.

The people there all left and nature is blooming. There are beautiful woods and lakes.

In places where roads have not been travelled by trucks or army vehicles, they are in the same condition they were 20 years ago - except for an occasional blade of grass that discovered a crack to spring through. Time does not ruin roads, so they may stay this way until they can be opened to normal traffic again........ a few centuries from now."

Elena's travels through the Chernobyl "dead zone" are amazing, hard to believe/digest, and beautiful. She provides a very thorough history of the background, what led up to it,e and the aftermath.

I'm going to have to finish this tommorrow because my mac is beyond fucked up (yes, all you mac lover friends of mine -- be expecting a call for tech assistance because this sucks!
