The Motorcycle: Design, Art, Desire - a celebration of two wheels

Indian Chief with Sidecar 1940

The motorcycle, as we know, is more than a simple form of transport. It is a celebration of life and an embodiment of freedom. It is also an expression of personality through customisation and a starring character in art, movies and television.

In recognition of the part the motorcycle plays in our lives, the Brisbane’s Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA) has opened the world exclusive exhibition ‘The Motorcycle: Design, Art, Desire’  featuring 100 exceptional motorcycles from the 1870s to the present.

Showing until 26 April 2021, the exhibition celebrates 150 years of motorcycle history, from humble origins as an engine bolted to a bicycle to the futuristic electric prototypes of the 21st century. The motorcycles on display trace this history of innovation and have been curated for the technical achievements and aesthetic merits represented.

For more information on the extensive public programs accompanying ‘The Motorcycle: Design, Art, Desire’ or to secure your tickets to the exhibition please visit www.qagoma.qld.gov.au/themotorcycle.

Royal Enfield Interceptor 650: A classic relived

The Adelaide Hills in Spring make for perfect riding conditions (R Eime)


The gorgeous Spring riding weather in Adelaide presented the perfect opportunity for our long-overdue road test of the new(ish) Royal Enfield (RE) twins.

We picked up the sparkling Interceptor 650 from local RE dealer, Motorcycle Revolution at Melrose Park, and disappeared into the hills. Revitalised after some generous rain and bathed in the radiant Spring sunshine, the Hills are recovering well from the devastating fires at the beginning of the year.
