Hello from Poland!

Hello,

My name is Rafal, 35. I've been riding bikes for about 7 years now, starting with Honda VT750DC, through FZ6, FJR and now XT660Z Tenere.
Once in every year I am trying to do a little bit longer trip - my wife gives me only 7-10 days of bike-vacation
Here are some samples of those days:
YouTube - Nordkapp 2006 by rfk & Szular
YouTube - motoAlpy'09 (Szular & rfk)
YouTube - Bike Tour 2010, PL - SLO - HU

In this year I am planning to visit Romania and Balkans in first days of July. It's about 4k km and should look like this:


If you would have any questions regarding riding in Poland, please do not hesitate to ask me. It will be a pleasure to help you.

Cheers,
Rafal

Hi Rafal
And welcome to the HUBB


I may well be asking you a few questions about Poland soon, especially about old Polish motorcycles.

All the best
Dave

Hello Rafal, welcome to the HUBB from Italy.

I visited some parts of your Country in 2009 while riding to St. Petersburg, Russia and I enjoyed it a lot!


Greetings.

Glad to hear that I am also planning to go to St. Petersburs on 2 wheels, maybe next year when all this football mania will take place in Poland

Take care,
Rafal

Minsk Bike Festival 2012 Belarus

Hi Rafal,

You may be able to help me with something....

Do you know the date of the next Belarus Bike Festival ?

I know your not in Belarus but I understand a lot of Polish riders attend and as we don't have any HUBBers from Belarus (I believe), I thought I'd ask you !

cheers Boyce
