[March 23, 2012 - BISBEE, ARIZONA] Born and bred in Arizona, Jay Allen, creator of the World's Biggest Biker Bar, The Broken Spoke Saloon and consummate emcee at motorcycle events around the country, announces his role as official emcee of Arizona Bike Week 2012.

"We are very excited to have Jay Allen join our team. Arizona Bike Week has grown to be the biggest rally in the Southwest. With his enthusiasm and unique way of connecting with the riding community, we are confident Jay will bring a new level of excitement to our main stage. We look forward to having Jay become a long term member of the Arizona Bike Week family, as we continue to bring a bigger and better event to the Valley of Sun each year," said Brad Bennett, one of the owners of the event.

Located in and around the Phoenix area, Arizona Bike Week is a desert rider's paradise promoting all things wild and west featuring some of the best riding in the United States.
