    I doubt if the colour of your bike or even the make will make any significant difference.

    PS Before you go, read this excellent (if you can use such a word in this context) new history and reassessment, not so much of the events but what caused them; it’ll put gawping into perspective:

    14 hrs on the motorway from Calais to Auschwitz. That doesn't sound like a lot of fun for me.

    I can think of much more entertaining destinations for a long weekend on the bike, and I'd make the trip to Auschwitz (though personally it isn't something that I particularly want to see) by flying and hiring a car.

    It doesn't matter how you travel - but everybody should see Auschwitz.
    Thomas! There's a mouse duck in the house!

    Went there many years back. Got cheap flights, stayed in Krakow and got a mini bus to Auschwitz with a guide. Stayed for a week had a few beers, lovely town. I think if i went by motorbike I would have at least three weeks in Poland and go up into the mountains outside Krakow as well as see other bits of the country.

    Rode my 700GS there in 2016.
    Fecking long way, certainly wouldn't want to do a weekend dash there & back.....

    You should have gone by train, for the full hands-on experience.
