Cool Buying a warrior from Poland, what should I be aware of

Dear community,

I am a new fan of the warrior and I want to buy one as my first bike ever.

I recently found a motorcycle that I like and I need your help and advice, I heard that buying a car from Poland could be tricky.

I know that a lot of countries including Poland bring bikes from the US and sell them registered in the EU
The bike I found is a 2008 Yamaha warrior with 7767 miles on it where the price that I negotiated is average compared to the Polish prices but definitely ~1000eur cheaper than the prices I found in Germany.
The owner answered all my question in details. He said he owned the bike for 3 years and he says it's in perfect mechanical condition. I asked if it was involved in a crash, he said the bike came from the US with a damage in the GAS tank but he fixed it. On pictures so far the bike fits my needs and looks in quite decent condition.

Anyway I need your advice on?
* What should I be aware of before buying the bike?
* Do professional experts in Poland(Krakow) exist, I mean experts that would come with me to make sure I close the deal without any legal traps?
* Is there a possibility to take the bike to Police or an authority to make sure the bike is not stolen or similar?
* What could possibly go wrong? it's a Motorcycle not a car.

Best thing I could do as a foreigner is visit Krakow, inspect the bike @ Yamaha and if everything is as expected I could take it. ofcourse I would check if the bike is registered in his name or a bank.

What else do you advise me to do?

Many thanks in advance
