MIRANDA YOUNG
Born To Ride Southeast Magazine|November 2020
PARANORMAL EXPLORER AND BIKER
Susan Hurst

Did you know that three out of every four Americans believe in ghosts and the paranormal? It’s true. Miranda Young, also known as the Ghost Biker, knows this better than most. Miranda has always been interested in the paranormal for as long as she can remember. As a child, you could find her in the library reading books about ghosts and folklore.

Miranda began investigating with a ghost research team in 2013 and continued with them until 2018. Her role on the team consisted of being the photo analyst, video/ audio evidence producer and marketing specialist, as well as investigator. While fully involved with the team, she found that in her spare time, she was traveling and exploring a great deal on her own. She would often take photos of these locations and share them on her Facebook page. These photos started to get a lot of attention and people began messaging her and asking what the stories were behind these images. This is how Ghost Biker Explorations and her Youtube channel was born.

Because Miranda is out on her bike taking photos every chance she gets and doing little investigations, she thought why not chronicle these adventures through video? Miranda loves investigating the big locations, but through this project, she discovered that every little town has a ghost story or two that the citizens have heard all their lives, or an abandoned location that they drive by every day. Her goal is to visit these towns, spotlight the areas, tell the stories and either investigate the location or explore it.

Hi-Tech Lighting - Installing A LED Headlight!

All headlights are not created equal; they are available in four basic light sources: incandescent, quartz halogen, HID (high-intensity discharge) and LED (light-emitting diode). Some riders think that brighter headlights are better, when in fact it is the color temperature of the light source that gives a rider the ability to see objects at night. A whiter light gives a rider a greater depth of view at night. Incandescent and quartz halogen lights have a yellow cast and HID lights have a blue beam, while hi-output LEDs emit a true white light; their light color is the closest to sunlight’s color.
