Swap Rides in Montana for New Zealand?

My riding buddy and I are thinking about trading rides with motorcyclists in New Zealand. We both have R1200GSs. What provisions for insurance and damage have been set in place for similar trades?

I prefer the Jessie's, but bought this bike used with the BMW cases. The BMW cases look good with the black Pelican case though.

I am glad to see that others recognize the unsurpassed utility of the Mega-Topcase. Those who diminish the value are just jealous that they didn't think of it and develop the idea.

I just pile the tent on top of the Pelican case, if I am tenting, which is not as much fun as it used to be.

I agree with you -- I am already starting to miss Mega-Topcase I.

The bike is a 2008 with just over 4,400 miles. I have owned it for about 3 weeks, so you will have to attempt to insult the previous owner. I can give you his name and email if that would help.

Mine is almost 10 years old, red, and faded beyond belief, but it is comfortable. Others tell me that riders yearn for a well-worn suit, and I have what they yearn for (a Mega-Topcase).
