Jay Allen grabs a record at Bonneville Speed Week 2011

Jay Allen joins forces with mentor Wink Eller
and breaks another Bonneville Landspeed Record

[August 25, 2011, Wendover, UT] -- Fresh from hosting a very successful Sturgis Rally 2011 at the downtown Original Broken Spoke, Jay Allen arrived at Bonneville Speed Week supercharged to break another Land Speed Record with the support of good friend and mentor, Wink Eller.

After three passes Allen claimed a new record average with 186.465 and a new Land Speed Record in the APS-PG-3000 class. Jay’s Bonneville bike is powered by an S&S 124” consumer motor with Rob Schopf B-2 heads, which is the smallest motor in the class. It also features a Baker drivetrain 5 speed 1:1 transmission. “I get up to 180 – 190mph no problem with these components that are right out of the crate,” tells Jay. “Now, that’s a testament to the kind of quality product these tried and true American manufacturers produce. Thanks to S&S and Baker I can live my dreams out here on the Flats!”

Wink ultimately was unable to ride his own bike due to an injury, but, boy, did he try. Eager to kill it on the salt, the mastermind fabricator forgot to factor in that his flesh wound would be pressed up against the frame and then assaulted by the wicked vibrations of top speed. The pain was so intense that Wink almost passed out and this was not acceptable to the legendary racer.
So, the pair wondered if he may be able to fit Jay's bike.
Wink soared up to 190 mph on Jay's bike then was hit by a side wind and the bike went through the two mile marker flag. The impact shattered the windshield and impregnated the fabric of the mile marker flag into his helmet. But his need for speed kept him slicing onward to finish the mile. Unfortunately, the clock didn't catch him coming into the mile. With windshield repaired, Wink went back out and made a 185 pass on a 184 record. The next day, he ran for the backup pass but was unable to set the record due to ridiculously inclimate weather. Ah! Foiled! Denied a record by Mother Nature!

Afterwards, it was Jay's turn to switch it up. He took four passes with Wink Eller’s bike which he claimed was "A monster, a beautiful work of art." However, due to an electrical issue, Wink had to take the bike back to his shop and now it's fixed and screamin' ready for Bubs.
Stay tuned for the formal announcement of Eller-Allan Racing. Good luck at the Bubs Speed Trials at Bonneville, Jay and Wink!

The Original Broken Spoke Saloon! Sturgis Rally 2011!

The Original Broken Spoke Saloon is. . .

The hottest honky-tonk in downtown Sturgis!

STURGIS, SOUTH DAKOTA – August 4, 2011  -  The Original Broken Spoke Saloon on Lazelle Street is a down home, honky-tonk party that is on fire the entire 71st rally week.  With its ride through bar, tire burned dance floor, museum quality motorcycles and collectibles, and non-stop entertainment it’s where the real rider loves to hang out.

This year, Jay Allen, founder of the Broken Spoke, welcomes neighbor Easyriders Saloon and Steakhouse, “We’re so excited to have this fine establishment next door.  We’ve opened our yards so customers can flow between us and enjoy a full experience of two genuine brands celebrating the motorcycle lifestyle.  Together we’re one giant block party!”  

Having been featured on The Learning Channel, Discovery Channel, Travel Channel, Outdoor Life, Smithsonian Channel, and many other networks and best-selling DVD motorcycle films, The Original Broken Spoke Saloon has always been an incubator for history-making events and custom motorcycle builder talent, and, of course, a hot spot for industry legends to congregate.  “We’re a shrine to the biker lifestyle,” tells Jay, “Coming here is mandatory to the full Sturgis Rally experience.”  

This year, Jay Allen hosts several must-see adrenaline-fueled experiences: Cycle Source Magazine Night, the 6th with editor and Limpnickie Lot founder, Chris Callen and friends; Michael Lichter/Sugar Bear adventure ride, the 7th where riders are photographed by an Easyriders Magazine legend.  Baker Smoke Down Showdown on Monday showcases hot, young custom builders in head-to-head tire blazin’ competition and on Tuesday the customer gets to smoke down their rides for awards.  AHDRA top fuel bikes light it up live on the dance floor Tuesday and industry legends seize the S&S Smokeout burnin’ spotlight, Wednesday, with one lucky customer winning an S&S Cycles 113” engine.   

Music is an essential ingredient that creates truly magical memories at the ol’ Spoke.  Biker rock stars commanding the stage are Jasmine Cain, Ryan Rolando, Big Engine, Farrell Webber, including excellent tribute bands.   “In our culture, we have our own music stars on the rally circuit that entertain the rally customer in a way that is completely different than other artists and we serve up this musical cocktail better than anyplace else in Sturgis.  Their performances celebrate the rider spirit and our incredible lifestyle.  They rock hard and deliver a show that keeps the audiences wanting more,” says Mr. Allen the consummate party host.   

Jasmine Cain celebrates the release of her new album Highway Prophet on Saturday the 8th with local artists and surprise guests coming to jam all night.

Two new additions inside the Broken Spoke were born from their successes at last year’s rally: Jasmine Cain’s Traveling Tattoo Company, featuring award-winning tattoo artists, and Angel’s Smokin’ Joe CafĂ© offering the best coffee drinks around using Sturgis Coffee Company products.  The open yard will be packed with carni-style entertainment, an Italian kitchen, and other unique vendors.  Paul Cox, builder to the stars and sidekick to legendary Indian Larry, will be on site at the Seminole Hard Rock lounge.

Debuting on Wednesday this year is the exciting Original Broken Spoke Saloon Ride-In Old School Chopper Show where customer’s bikes receive awards and accolades, all in Jay Allen’s unique hosting style.  Winners ride away with a prize award and the customers receive entertaining motorcycle history from Jay.  Another source of Mr. Allen’s enthusiasm and passion for sharing the love of motorcycles is his dedication to racing.  He is also the captain of the Broken Spoke Race team and a record-breaking monster Bonneville Salt Flat racer. 

The Original Broken Spoke Saloon will always be home to the most authentic rider of all ages.  The atmosphere simply caters to a rider’s soul.  From great entertainment, to great food and overall service, “We are all about showing love to our customers,” tells Jay.   This year, that love will be captured on film for a hot new television show, details to be revealed at a future date.  All events are free to attend.

"We at the Broken Spoke Saloon thank you, riders of the world, for making us one of the most famous saloons on the planet."
