if you've been following Empire since the beginning, you'll probably remember Ryan Boen from our early team roster. Ryan was one of the best riders to come out of the heavy-hitter heavy Midwest, and dominated the Am class at the T1/FBM jam in the early 2000's. he's been out of the scene for a bit, but I have no doubt that he's still killing it somewhere in Minnesota. he called today and ordered some parts, and in true Boen style it took lots of angst and doubt to reach a final order list. he's been with us since the Trend days, and i'm happy he's alive and doing well. here's Ryan's part from one of Manmade's videos. thanks to BMXMDB.com for hooking it up!
