I’m Ryan L. Allen and motocycles have been part of my innerworkings since my late father Tommy R. Allen had me interested in old Indian motorcycles.
As a youth he asked me; “Son what do you want to do with these old machines?” Pontifically saying something like: I would ride them across the country competing in some sort of cross country event. laughingly he said well son you were born in the wrong era and how they don’t do that sort of thing anymore. Stubbornly I continued to daydream: High on tainted gas fumes, delirious, as I slam shifting some sick Indian rig into third and the Deep Tech House jambs rocked my very soul to scenes of Americana as the striped paint of the blacktop pulsed thru the frames of time.
