Plans have changed, looking to swap Europe Summer 2014

I iive in Beckley, West Virginia USA. I am seeking a bike swap to tour Europe. If you (or someone you know) would be interested in touring the US on one of my bikes in exchange for my use of a bike in Europe, please let me know. I have done this once before in Europe once in New Zealand and have an exchange to complete in Australia for Jan and Feb of 2014.
I have an ST1300 (2003 model) and a 2008 Kawasaki Versys. Both bikes are well maintained and have all the luggage one needs for long range touring. Any swap would be well planned and agreeable with both parties and properly insured. Most any bike that's capable of touring long distance would be acceptable for me.
Thanks for any help or referrals you can provide in my search for another Euro tour. I have references concerning my previous swaps and would be glad to discuss the details of an exchange/swap.

Luis, plans/timing has changed. I found a swapmate in Australia. He came to the US this summer (2013) and used my Honda ST1300 to tour the US. I am going to Australia this winter to use his bike. If you are still interested in coming to the US, send me a message and we can discuss it. Portugal would be great for me for the summer 2014. I've never been there. My Australian friend just returned from Portugal.
Cheers
Joe

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.
