Buying Registering and Riding in Europe

I travel to Europe often and thought I'd buy a bike, garage it at a friends place in Switzerland for occassional riding. Is this difficult for someone outside the country.

In particular, how difficult to get a used bike in say the Netherlands and somehow be able to ride or ship to Switzerland for annual tour. In short, I have no idea how to do it and all suggestions welcome.

The bike shop in the Netherlands was no help !!

buying and getting the export papers is no problem in holland.
registration in swiss will be a problem.

it might be easyer to "borrow" a bike from a local.

Get with Wheatwhacker;
He has your solution. I wanted a bike to ride and store in Europe.
You won't be sorry.
