Polish Parade Next Year?

So all my fellow Poles, any of you interested in being in the Polish Parade next year, but for the hell of it. I was there saturday and saw all these hogs and only a couple sports bikes pictures below:

Anyone up for it?

It is not that easy to take part in this parade,
I belong to SOKOL MC and we took part in this parade. First you need to file an application and pay donation, the less you pay the further back you are. In earlier years there could be unlimited amount of motorcycles for each application, now this number is limited to only 50 motorcycles. What is more this year they introduced the new law. When we arrived at the parade location police told us that sport bikes can not take part in the parade. This was a decision of the whole management that organized this event- our polish guys. They made this decision 2 days before parade and did not let anyone know. Since some of the members of our club have sport bikes the decision was made not to go at all and we wanted the management to know we will never show up again and will not make any more donations. One of our members is a well known polish TV and radio presenter and he went to talk to them. After serious talk the management decided they will let us go - all of us- even sport bikes and even more than 50 bikes. The police checked drivers licenses and insurance of every single rider. There were a few people that came on sport bikes from different states to take part in this parade. What would happen if the management did not change their mind about the sport bikes? They would simply wast time and money to come here.

So to sum up- we do not know if we are going next year. Probably yes because it is a very nice occasion to meet everybody and people love to look at the bikes.
If anyone wants to attend next year you are welcome to join us and you can contact me with any questions.

It's not that bad with left hand- believe me - you could do it

Attending such a parade is a really great experience.
