Many people can not "fix" on Poland because they know so little about it or are just 30 years behind reality. Go South to the the mountains and and go north to the The Baltic Sea. You'll be impressed. Of course, if you drive in between you'll be impressed as well as in "discovery' mode.

I think he should see it all. The new and the old.
Seeing a cow grazing on the side of a road is a good "old time" kick for me.

You're gonna land in Warsaw, I suppose. Start there. It has plenty of of night life. Then, get to Wroclaw! It is a city of young, college people and they know how to party.

you ride motorcycles

Not just a Motorcycle...but a Harley no less....There is a Harley dealer in Poznan , one in Warsaw , and i am pretty sure there is one in Gdansk....I can find out if they hire out bikes if you want...The riding season starts about march over here...unless you are like me and want to get out as soon as the snow melts...

Alright boys, you just get on the bikes and start exploring. But, you have to wait until spring! However, the life goes on in the winter too, so Maluch should do!

Renting one is an option...I guess. At least you have a roof over your head.
