About the image
Singer-actor Dean Martin liked to play up the boozy guy routine when he was performing, so Webster captured a little bit of that character here. 

"Triumph motorcycles gave Dean Martin a brand-new Triumph Bonneville. This was in the early 60s. Dean got on the bike for publicity purposes, rode it up the driveway, and then called me over to his house. He told me, "If I ride this thing I could kill myself. My contract says that I can't ride a motorcycle, and I don't want it at the house. You want this thing?" And, of course, I jumped at the chance. On the Bonneville tank there was writing: Dino by Bud Ekins. I showered it with love.  I had never owned anything so exotic."
