Tony Bandana has a versatile background ranging from Teamster to taxi driver, tradesman, business owner, practice in the legal field and an active community group leader while living his life in the American counter culture of the more serious side of the world of motorcycling. Tony was raised in Boston and surrounding areas during an era that presented many challenges to the country and hard choices for those of his generation. Developing survival skills was imperative to their very existence. Tony believes that being a good listener of each individual’s life experiences is the best education to learn how to make personal choices to one's own soul.

Throughout this saga, Tony shares different concepts, attitudes, and verses which were formed over a lifetime. Tony’s dad repeatedly cautioned that the roadway of life Tony had chosen was not an easy route and would make life more difficult than those who chose to play it safe. Tony believed that his dad’s words were well intended, but chose the adventurous road of risks and challenges to satisfy his soul.

After deciding to share his many adventures, he met writer Lena Stone and asked if she would be interested in co-authoring a book which has transformed into a life-long saga. She accepted understanding that their different paths in life had led them down different roads they both recognized their souls were similar in an adventurous way, much like the souls of so many others they encountered. I hope you enjoy the saga and it leaves all of you asking, What’s is in your soul?
