"So what do you do for fun?" Oh I go in abandoned buildings and take pictures.

I think without a doubt the best thing that ever happened to me in regards to UE was getting my motorcycle license.


Picking up my first bike Sunday and this is exactly what I want to do with it. I'm glad someone else has found such success.




Are we living a life that is safe from harm? Of course not, we never are. But that's not the right question. The question is, are we living a life that is worth the harm?

Definitely worth considering and looking into, it's an expensive (in terms of maintenance and the neverending urge to buy more bikes) and dangerous hobby, but really maximizes your ability to roam and explore the world, especially if you get into dual-sport.


This actually isn't a bad idea, I'll have to look into it.

I think without a doubt the best thing that ever happened to me in regards to UE was getting my motorcycle license. Lightweight motorcycles are so fuel efficient these days (we're talking 60 - 80 MPG on new fuel injected bikes) that the cost of gasoline for exploration becomes almost negligible, this would especially be true for Americans. I commute 140 km on average (round trip) a day and try to take a different route every day to spot new abandonments. Up here in Canada where gas is significantly more expensive I can still do 150 km on my bike for about $6 depending on how hard I flog the throttle. On top of that motorcycles naturally have a size advantage over cars that really comes in handy for exploration, countless times I've driven my bike right in through the front door of an abandonment to hide it from public view, or simply parked it behind something.

Definitely worth considering and looking into, it's an expensive (in terms of maintenance and the neverending urge to buy more bikes) and dangerous hobby, but really maximizes your ability to roam and explore the world, especially if you get into dual-sport.


I've been following many of your threads for awhile and seems like you've been getting along great with the bike!

I'd have to think hard but there have probably been cases where I discovered more than one abandoned area in one ride. Sometimes I'm tired and on my way home and I see another and I just have to stop and do the bare minimum.


Ugh this just happened to me today on my way home after scouting an abandoned HolidayvInn and successfully entering an abandoned red light district.

Took a wrong turn to dodge a red light and found myself in an abandoned machine shop area. I just want to go home!
