The Adventures Of Sparky and Clutch (Episode 1)

The Adventures and Sparky and Clutch is a comic strip developed by the author of Discovering the Motorcycle – The History. The Culture. The Machines. After Armand Ensanian completed his acclaimed 510 page book on all that motorcycling has to offer, he was looking for a much lighter themed project that would educate those new to motorcycling in a humorous format.

Sparky and Clutch are millennials that literally discover the motorcycle. Their adventures are based on the real life experience of the author over his fifty years of riding and repairing bikes. They are introduced to the basics of motorcycle mechanics, its culture, and vast riding experiences. Follow Sparky and Clutch as they dive into this wonderful world on two wheels. Illustrated by Alan Bessen,

The Adventures of Sparky and Clutch make an ideal medium for introducing motorcycling to younger audiences as well. Armand gave me authorization to publish each episode, one per week. Below is the first one.

    Aren’t comics supposed to be funny? Or at least a little bit amusing?

    Pretty funny, yes an Ironhead sporty would have been a better fit.

    You should call this comic dumb skinny jean hipster libtard lumbersexuals who don’t know shit about bikes.

    That would make it funny.

    This is pretty cool. I’ve got a couple of millennials that would appreciate this. I think he nailed it with the beemer (R60?). It seems to be pretty hot with millennials now. Love the idea of an Indian 4, Harley JD, or even a Vincent, but those are too predictable for barn finds. Let’s see where this goes.

    I have too many memories as a kid finding rusted over, POS bikes in a neighbors garage or barn or something. Never knew enough to get them started but this strip definitely reminds me of that.

    Definitely relatable. Nobody knew shit about bikes at one point, right?
