Swap use of bike in Poland in July '23 for bike or VW Transporter in Sydney

Hi,
Anyone interested in swapping use of a touring/dual sport bike in east Poland for similar in Sydney , Australia?
My partner and i are interested in something relatively comfortable like a BMW R1200GS or BMW GS800 instead of renting/buying a boring car to visit relatives.

We have a BMW F650GS, R100LT tourer, economical Honda CB125 and a VW Transporter van which may be of interest to swap use in Sydney, Australia.
We are mature. Rob, the rider, Aussie is a 64yo mature experienced rider and remote traveller of 46 years experience on six continents and shows respect for your vehicle as you would for mine.
We will arrive in Warsaw, Poland on July 20 and would use bike for a few weeks touring minor back roads visiting family during our travel window when we depart on October 1.
We can contact by PM and Messenger etc if this is of interest. My partner is Polish so communication is no problem.
Cheers, Rob
Sydney, Australia

Thanks Homers. I’ve got bikes in the garage in Sydney to use. Thought I’d offer the opportunity if someone also wanted to make use of their equipment in return.
Where are you?
Maybe one day we might swap.
Cheers, Rob

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
