Chernoybl MotoPhotoBlog Had No Moto?

According to Boing Boing, channeling Neil Gaman (!), the MotoPhotoBlog I linked to a while back is semi-fraudulent. The pictures may be real, but the story isn't:

I am sorry to report that much of Elena's story is not true. She did not travel around the zone by herself on a motorcycle. Motorcycles are banned in the zone, as is wandering around alone, without an escort from the zone administration. She made one trip there with her husband and a friend. They traveled in a Chornobyl car that picked them up in Kyiv.

Snookered me.
