Within our little circle, we have known this for awhile but wanted to wait till Jay was ready to let the word out. Jay has been a great friend to Chris, the Cycle Source staff, the Limpnickie Lot and my family.

Duane and I met Jay during the Baker Transmission 10th Anniversary party, that was held @ the Broken Spoke Saloon. I was in total awe of the way he worked the crowd. It was our first time there but we felt like we were at a family outing. I have been lucky enough to work with Jay for over a year and know that whatever he decides to do, he will kick ass all the way.

From all of us @ Cycle Source, we would like to wish you the very best! See you on the road soon

Here is the official release that was sent out on June 7, 2011


In regards to the Broken Spoke Saloons in Daytona Beach, FL; Laconia, NH and the Broken Spoke Campground in
Sturgis, SD:
After 18 years, I , Jay Allen, am stepping away from my leadership role. Brian Lash of Target Logistics (brian@targelogistics.net), a shareholder, deems it’s his turn to serve the finest people known to man: the riders of the world. Accolades like creating a campground for Harley Davidson’s 100th anniversary, providing services for the Olympics in Greece and Canada, and working with the Bonnaroo Music Festival speak to Brian’s and the Target
Company’s ability to get the job done. I wish them well, as I still own a large stake in the company, and only want the best for it, but I am anxious to move forward personally in the
motorcycle industry.
For Sturgis 2011, I’ll be at the Original Broken Spoke, dishin’ it out to all you “Scooter Trash,” Jay Allen style with smoking hot servers, hot & steamy contests, great events, and beer so cold it will crack your teeth! After the Black Hills Classic, it’s “LSR” Land Speed Racing time! With talent the likes of Jeff Lange, Rob Schopf and Wink Eller, an S&S Cycle 135” motor and a Baker Drive Train 5-Speed – lord willing – maybe I can pilot our race bike closer to the 200 mph mark at the legendary Bonneville salt flats.
In the Fall I’ll be at the Lonestar Rally presenting the S&S Smokeout and Baker’s “Smoke Down Show Down” which
will blow the Texas riders away! Don’t miss it!
For the many young and upcoming rallies out there, my services will be available for: consulting – site selection- talent
booking – event creation – security – providing a strong bar back team and liquor inventory system – and of course, always
bringing in the A-team of beautiful, lighting-fast bartenders! Don’t forget, I am always available to be your crowd energizing
“master of ceremonies.” Let me save you time and money while accelerating your event’s success!
Blazing ahead, in 2012, Jay Allen Productions will be filming at all the major motorcycle events, producing a high-octane 2-wheel TV show for our armed forces.

I’ll be looking forward to crossing paths with my Broken Spoke family on the open highways of this great country.
Let’s ride!
