Hi There,

Is it safe to ride a motorcycle in Poland. I am visiting in the new year. I am not a member of any club but just visiting.

You are aware that winters in Poland are harsh, thus making it extremely unpleasant and dangerous?

I have four wheels but it didn't help me to avoid skidding ;) Beware of black ice.

As above, we have hard winters in Poland, with lots of snow and ice. Temps in our area have been down to minus 10 in the day and minus 20 overnight for ten days, though it's now above zero again. Roads here are not especially well maintained, so there are lots of little potholes and such, making roads bumpy for the best of cars, never mind motorbikes. Generally, you must keep your wits about you - concentrate - as there are sudden reductions in the speed limit, poor drivers and left turns from what you might think is the "overtaking" lane.

But loads of people ride scooters and bikes, quads too.

Merged: Query about Polish traffic laws relating to motorcycles on motorways

Hi,

Can someone tell me if it is legal/tolerated to filter through stationary/slow moving traffic on the motorways on a motorcycle in Poland?

It is specifically forbidden in Poland. "Jazda po linii jest zabroniona: PoRD, art. 16, ust. 4".

When riding a motorcycle in Poland, you are required to behave and maneuver as if your motorcycle takes up the same space as a full size automobile.

However, in practice, people do it all the time. Myself included.

does anyone ride offroad in poland?
ive visited some beautifull forests near lodz, which i believe are probably government owned , lots of clear pathways , no people around -looks just great for a bit of off road motorcyling.
on some bylanes in the uk - you can do just that , how does it work in poland?
i asked my polish g/f about trying the same thing - she doesnt know ...

Had the same thoughts myself. Not much left in Blighty now. I've seen a few 4 wheel drives in the forests but I guess if the rozzers catch you it's going to be expensive.
