Riding tips

  1. Always wear your helmet. Helmets are compulsory in Slovenia for both rider and passenger. The police will pull you over the same moment they see you riding without one.
  2. Ride with your headlamp on days and nights and make sure other traffic sees and / or hears you. In urban areas especially.
  3. Busses leaving bus stations have the right of way over the other vehicles and some bus drivers tend to prove it.
  4. Crime rate regarding Harley motorcycles thefts is fortunately almost zero in Slovenia. Only one Harley is reported stolen in entire history. Nevertheless, don't make yours to be the second. So keep your items secure and don't leave your motorcycle unattended.


H.O.G. Lipa Chapter Slovenija recommends:


Try → Zemljevid. Enter town, street, or full street address you're looking for in the field above and click the button "Najdi" (Search) next to it.


Once I heard this quote from a die-hard motorcycle driver: "There's always a good weather for a motorcycle ride, but sometimes the choice of clothes is poor." The estimated riding season in Slovenia depends on region (average daily temperatures in degrees centigrade shown below):

  1. Sea side region: December - March (between 5 and 10 C), April - November (10 C or above), mostly sunny;
  2. Other regions: April - October (10 C or above), other months snowy or rainy.

You can find more statistics about weather here (in Slovenian).
