Re: The Motorcycle: Design ~ Art ~ Desire

Although the State of Victoria is doing its best to upset things, QAGOMA is now open to the socially-distanced public and the exhibition is still scheduled to open in Brisbane on 28 November. We're well into the layout and design phase of the exhibition, allowing ample time for QAGOMA's incredible s...

Re: Angle BTDC - ignition setting

You do NOT need to know the length of the conrod - simply use the calculator to which I gave a link earlier in this subject string. You are oh so completely wrong. But, I don't want to pay the $2000 it would cost to ship your bike to the U.S. so I won't go through the simple geometry to show you wh...

Re: Angle BTDC - ignition setting

cmfalco and David are right, but the (simplified) table is intended for homemade measurements, My question is, why would you knowingly do something incorrectly when there are on-line calculators that make it just as easy to do it correctly? It's not a matter of "homemade" vs. and accurate...

Re: Angle BTDC - ignition setting

No, again, it is simple trigonometry, but it is more complicated than a simple arc. The length of the connecting rod is required.

Re: Angle BTDC - ignition setting

That chart is incorrect because it does not take into account the length of the connecting rod.

Re: The Motorcycle: Design ~ Art ~ Desire

Against all bets that would have been placed just a little over a month ago, the Queensland Art Gallery (the QAG of the two-building QAGOMA complex) is now making tentative plans to open in late June, with the Gallery of Modern Art (the GOMA) in early August. Having the slower winter season to ease ...

Re: The Motorcycle: Design ~ Art ~ Desire

How dus the loan work and when is a motorcycle interesting enough? I’m not sure what you mean with the first part of your question. As for the second part, that’s entirely up to the curators — Ultan Guilfoyle and me — to decide. I’m on the last leg of a flight back from Brisbane where we spent an i...

Re: The Motorcycle: Design ~ Art ~ Desire

I assume that the dreaded Australian no asbestos import ban is no longer in use ? The ban is very much in place. But the Gallery is able to secure a blanket waiver containing specific requirements based on the fact each object only will be temporarily imported, installed in a static display where i...

Re: The Motorcycle: Design ~ Art ~ Desire

I guess Insurance is a bit of a nightmare . Are the British "National Motorcycle Museum" and the "Sammy Miller Museum" on your list ?? Insurance isn't an issue for an institution like QAGOMA. The machines will be fully insured as well as packed and transported as if they were pr...
