For very experienced drivers only!
The roads on Samos are mostly bad. Where they are not covered with holes the asphalt is like soap, especially in summertime when it does not rain for months.
If you must use a motorbike, take extra special care in bends and when braking, go slow and think twice before overtaking that cement truck.
A lot of accidents happen on Samos with tourists on motorbikes involved.
Also note that helmets are obligatory and the police checks this very frequently, fining you with 175 EUR if they see you without one.
Do not do that!
Everything that goes for motorbikes goes for scooters as well.
In addition, their small wheels make them prone to slip when braking.
Moreover, many of them are not in the best state when it comes to brakes and tires.
