i post this idea in the kiwi forum because the aussies that frequent it, i feel are the type of guys that i think i'd feel comfortable sharing an arrangement with. it could go something like this: each rider buys a share to get in the shareholders collectively buy 2 equal bikes. one on each side of the tasman. fully legal, insured and road worthy and professionally serviced. gps and (say) universal soft luggage racks fitted. all fixed monthly costs shared equally. a per km or per day charge to use. bikes are cleaned, garaged and live on a charger. tyre change outs, rental to non shareholders and lots of other stuff i haven't thought about yet to be agreed. i would be happy to be the agent on this side of the tasman. i'm thinking tiger 800 or similar. would there be any appetite for this?
