Bikeswap - New Zealand for Europe

Hi all

My wife and I are thinking of touring around Europe in 2009 (July)
We will be visitin Norway, Sweden, Germany etc etc

So we would like to swap bikes if possible or point us in the right direction where we could buy one or hire one that wont cost the earth

We have a 2006 F650GS, with full luggage and mods for more adventurous travellers
We can even arrange good accommodation and other riders places so keeping the costs down

Cheers Scott

Hey Kiwi rider.

I'm a kiwi living in the Netherlands. I'm about to purchase a 1100gs. So we might be able to sort something out next year!
I'm wanting to take my dutch girlfriend back home for a couple of weeks and was wondering about transport / hiring a bike. Where in NZ are you. My family is based in the South Waikato

Thumbs up Don't forget...

Trans-Atlantic BikeShare, World Wide - BikeShareworld.com
I'm a member and have been for a few years. The Tour-Share section is also a good idea. You can email members and meet, get advice and help, and sometimes even accommodation.

Regards

Nigel in NZ

P.S. I know Scott, and he's a good'un.

Hi there

Thanks for your reply

Het Scott
At this stage it's a loose thought but proberly March-ish '09. Try get some nice weather. And let the folks meet her etc. This summer will be the test for the lass to see if she's keen on being the back of the bike!
So if you're interested, we should keep in touch and in a the next 1-2 months I'd have a much better idea of my dates. I've got the funds pretty much sorted so by end of Feb I'd hope to have the 1100 (i've only just moved here so there's always a 100 and 1 things that need to be sorted!) I'll send ya photies when I've got it

Ride safe,

Steve
