Need bike ridden/transported from Ireland to Aisa

Hey. I am planning a trip in the summer of 2013 from Asia, not that fussy which part as I will touring around anyway.

My problem is my bike, an 1999 Africa Twin in in storage in my family home in Ireland. I would prefer to ride east-west with Ireland being the final destination.

What I seek, is someone who is willing to ride the bike to Asia anytime between now and summer of 2013. The bike is in good condition, 40,000 km's and has givi hard bags.

Option 2 is shipping the bike.

Northern Asia?

The bike could be flown from London to Seoul for (probably) about $1,500.
From there it can straightforwardly get to Vladivostok, Russia for a border free journey to EU Baltic countries.
If someone were to ride it there for you the cost of their accommodation en-route, fuel, return air ticket etc would be close to that - possibly higher. And who knows what mishaps could occur on the way.

Where to exactly?

I'm not looking to pay anybody, I'm offering the bike.
I have an Irish guy interested at the moment.
