A number plate is compulsory on off-pavement tracks.
These areas are restricted: “Fokozottan Védett Természeti Terület” (“Highly Protected Natural Area”) , Természetvédelmi Terület (“Nature Reserve”) and “Natura 2000” areas.
Natura 2000 - You must not leave the road inside forests by motorbike - only by foot! The penalty can be 1,000 Eur / 300,000 HuF.
You may come across armed National Park guards on some of the routes. They are not keen on trail-riders. Be polite, friendly, confident and persuasive!
