Bike Swap US for NZ this July

My name is Mike. I've got an '04 Triumph ST955i that's going to sit in Seattle WA all summer as I travel with my 12 yo son. We're headed to Auckland the 14 July to 24 July 2015 and wanted to see if anyone here might be interested in a swap or have an extra bike they could lend or let to us for our stay.

I've rode over 500,000 miles around the world on bikes but this is my first tour with my son. Rules of swaps are straight forward: I break, I buy, you break, you buy. Bike is returned to a shop for an oil change and clean up, tires replaced or compensation made towards next pair. And, of course, no tickets!

I've attached a pic of my bike and will forward my contact info/LinkedIn profile is below so it's apparent I'm legit.

Thanks in advance for any support you may provide.

Best regards,

Hi Mike,
If you get desperate I have a 32 year old BMW R80ST that you could borrow.Comes with panners, top box and tank bag.
I've done a few two up trips.
I live in Auckland too.
If your planning on covering the entire country in 10 days I would suggest a newer bike with more power.
For a trip around Northland and maybe the Coromandel would be good as lots of back roads.
Quite a few airhead guys here so there is a sort of loose support network.

If you want newer you may be better off hiring one for 10 days.
