Start ’em young…

…appreciating fine bikes that is! Here’s an item available from the Triumph Store as an accessory: a childrens colouring-in book of the current range of motorcycles; from Bonnies to Speed Triples. I wish I had this as a kid!

Och the Noo; git oahn yer bike an’ tek the road te the But ‘n’ Ben…

Further to yesterdays piece relating the artwork to the fine inkwork found in a Broons page; well here’s a part of a story relating to Hen Broon being chased to their highland retreat, the But ‘n’ Ben, only to find it’s headed by none other than Granpaw Broon…  crivvens whit fun!

All Broons artwork harks back to the definitive linework of Dudley D. Watkins. Who inked The Broons, Oor Wullie and Desperate Dan of the Beano for 30 odd years before his death in 1969.
