You ride mine, I ride yours?
Due to a combination of poor planning and high expense I wasn't able to organise to ship a bike to Argentina for my holidays. This has prompted an idea and I would be interested to gain feedback from people on the following idea.
Would anyone be interested in swapping bikes for holidays. That is I fly to your country and use your fully insured and registered bike and in return you fly to my country and do the same.
This arrangement by passes problems such as shipping costs, registration, insurance etc.
Obviously there would be details to work out in terms of trust, care for the bikes and what is a fair swap but in terms of ease of logistics it might work.
By the way I am an Australian currently in London but will return next year and want to come back to see more of Europe on a bike.
