Swap Bikes?

I'm sure this has been done before, but I'm just too lazy to search.
I have a DR650 which I would be happy to let a fellow inmate use in central Canada during the sumer, for the use of their similar ride somewhere in the southern USA in the winter.

I'm thinking maybe be the summer season in central Canada is just too short - most people probably think you only get a month of good weather. I know that's not the case . . . but

Would have thought you'd at least get some response from someone.

Maybe a search would help. Just saying.

Maybe no one wants to go to Central Canada.

Think about it-Canada thats where you go to fish, not ride & most people don't fly or drive up there to then hop on a bike.Doesn't mean that it's not a great place to ride, just that what you want is very unlikely to come together. Trailer down here or ride it down. You could say the same thing about other areas. When you see Euro types wanting to swap/rent here they are flying to a major city then getting on the bike.
