​Hooning In An Abandoned Russian Kids' Camp Is Both Creepy And Awesome

Illustration for article titled ​Hooning In An Abandoned Russian Kids Camp Is Both Creepy And Awesome

This video encapsulates one of the reasons I love bikes. Their go-anywhere, do whatever the hell you want nature lend themselves perfectly to random acts of honnage. In this case, it just happens to be a no-holds-barred run through a mildly disturbing deserted kid's camp in Russia.

The film – appropriately titled Desolation – comes from Russian filmmaker Daniel Kushnarevich, who ran across the abandoned camp about 30 miles outside of Moscow.

The bike is a BMW R1200GS, which looks surprisingly lithe thanks to both the skill of the rider – Vadim Shpilevsky – and the minimal mods, namely the removal of the windshield and mirrors, rear seat and cases, along with some additional crash guards and grilles. But you don't need a $20k bike to have this kind of fun. Just something with adequate suspension travel, some practice in tight quarters, and a bleak, deserted building that could be the set for the Chernobyl Diaries Part II: The Chernobyling.
