Mirek Antoniewicz

I have been riding motorcycles since the early 90’s and for many years rode a Boxer motorcycle with a sidecar. I have travelled in several countries including Ukraine, Romania, Montenegro, Albania, Russia and Tunisia. Besides adventure motorcycling, I love camping, sitting by a fire and gazing at beautiful views.
