Bikeswap required, Holiday in NZ???
My wife and I require a bike, pref BMW R1100GS, to tour UK and Europe, flying into Manchester late july, for a 2 month holiday, We have BMW panniers, but to have them supplied with a topbox as well would be better, as we intend to do a lot of camping and require the extra luggage capacity. We have looked at shipping our 1997 R11GS over, but the exchange rate has killed that dream. I know that they are very expensive to hire, so we would even consider hiring a privatly owned bike at a reduced rate if anybody would be willing. In exchange I am prepared to offer our bike to the swappee (conditions to be discussed), if they should wish to tour New Zealand. This certainly appears to be a way to get around the expense of freight, registration and insurance.If you are aware of anybody willing, please advise, also need to know if there is such a thing as aswap group on the net.
