Meet the Twisted Crew

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Erik, a.k.a. Mr. Twisted, is the founder of this asylum and keeps the place running like a well oiled machine (don't ask what type of machine...)! Of the many Twisted Bikes, Erik's favored trackday toy is the 2012 Triumph Street Triple R. After graduating from the University of Delaware Erik quickly learned that moonlighting as a trombone player in a rock and jazz band while consulting for a law firm just wasn’t the life for him. Apparently you can't wear race leathers to a board meeting without co-workers nicknaming you "the Terminator." Trading in the 5 wheels on his corporate office chair for 2, Erik has now been able to ride on every continent on Earth with the exception of Antarctica (possible?). With adventures like that under his belt, "Mr Twisted" KNOWS what we sell and how it works in all sorts of riding conditions.

Twisted since June 2002

 

 

 

 

Nick is our company beserker and the guy who keeps the orders flowing to the warehouse. When he is not wrestling computers, he can be heard rumbling through the countryside on his HD Sportster or Pontiac TransAm.

Twisted since August 2006

 

  

 

 

Matt is our International Man of Mystery and the Tech Master on our Customer Service Team. He was kind enough to slow down for this shot before pulling a wheelie and jumping a row of flaming buses. Some say his practice of taking corners at high-speed with panniers is the reason TraX sidecases have beveled edges. Sorely missing his BMW R1100S, he currently rides a Honda GL1100 Goldwing on sunny days and a Kawasaki KLR650 when it snows.

Twisted since April 2007

 

 

  

 

 

Brian is our in-house racing guy. He regularly flogs his KTM SMR supermoto and 2008 Yamaha R6 around the Loudon and New Jersey tracks while sporting swanky leathers. His current street bike is a Suzuki DL650 V-Strom. Oh yeah... he's even faster than Matt! Brian's former rides include a Suzuki GSF400 Bandit and Kawasaki ZRX1200R. His latest bikes are a dirt prepped Honda CRF230L, a KTM450 Motard and a 2nd-gen race-prepped SV650S.

Twisted since October 2007

 

 

 

 

Even though Dereck is no longer with us, "Chappy" will always be part of the Twisted crew... Always.

Twisted since January 2008

 

 

 

David is a full-time Father, Husband and Outdoors enthusiast extraordinaire. When he's not teaching Viking combat or pirate reenacting he might be feeding his chickens or enjoying family time on the archery/axe-throwing range at home. With 20+ years in Purchasing and Retail Management in the sport optics and print media industries David has turned his passion loose on adventure motorcycling and can be spotted riding his Kawasaki KLR650A, 1973 Honda CL175 dirt-tracker or GSX-R 750.  Next Bike? Ural with plenty of room for a musket and a deer!

Twisted since April 2008

 

 

 

Nate is our in-house product designer from the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD). Master of all things metal, as well as doing crafty graphic illustrations and catalog creation, Nate is a chronic Jeep modifier and is learning to speak German so he can play nice with our European suppliers. Nate's current ride is a Suzuki DRZ400SM supermoto. Since purchase, he's built more new toys for that bike than any other. We think he's biased.

Twisted since June 2008

 

 

 

Tom drives the Twisted Trailer to shows all around the country and fixes it when the wheels come off. When he's not forced to drive our big rig, he prefers to ride his BMW R1150GS or F650GS single. A wild world traveler with a penchant for twisties, he has the best party house of the crew and hosts summer shoreline fiestas that no one EVER forgets... and he carries the best first aid kit on his bike out of anyone in the shop!

Twisted since July 2008

 

Greg G

 

 

Greg grew up on dirt bikes, ATV's and all other things motorized! He joined Twisted Throttle in 2010 as a shipper in the warehouse, moved to customer service, then on to working in our Product Development department as he completed his engineering degree.

Twisted since February 2010

 

 

 

 

J.P. is our mad man in the warehouse! This guy started out packing boxes... Do something really well for a long time and people start to notice! 

Now he can be found slingin' knowledge as he manages our warehouse, keeping operations running smooth on the daily and making sure everything is set up right so your package gets to your door on time!

Twisted since July 2011

 

 

 

 

Raja is our CIO. Genius of all things digital, he's masterminded several plots involving laser beams and "one million dollars".

Twisted since November 2011

 

 

 

 

Jack arrived by Suzuki from Utah to get our IT world in order. Jack rides his Boulevard rain or shine, proudly parking it front and center in the Twisted parking lot to show that we aren’t only about adventure and touring bikes (it’s true). Jack can be heard spouting mildly interesting bits of knowledge without provocation, not because he is deranged, but because he takes trivia night a bit too seriously.

Twisted since April 2012

 

 

 

 

Jane comes to us from the wacky world of HVAC where she accounted for the never-ending flow of dollars in and dollars out. Not only is Jane a highly-skilled number-cruncher and organizer, she is also an accomplished rider. When she’s not managing the inner-workings of the Twisted corporate machine, she is teaching newbies at an MSF course how to ride or ripping around the racetrack on her R6 or DRz400 motard.

Twisted since April 2012

 

 

 

 

Mike R always seems to have a spring in his step, even after a long day answering phone calls and restocking the retail store. When Michael isn't serving customers, he is dreaming of the limelight and his glorious past as a stage performer and Karaoke king. Rock on, Mikey!

Twisted since May 2012

 

 

 

 

Ernie is a recently retired as a Fire Lieutenant who commanded a Special Hazards unit for the City of Providence Fire Department.  With his crisis management skills and lifelong history of riding, Ernie is the number one person on our list to go dualsport riding with, should things get “interesting”.  Ernie has swapped out flames and building collapses to work on our Web Content Editing Team and we could not be happier,  Outside the office, Ernie maintains a small personal fleet, “Now I’m down to five bikes.”

No doubt his 2007 Honda XR70, 1981 Honda XL185s, 2002 KTM 400exc, 2014 BMW G650GS and 2012 KTM 990 Adventure R all have a jeopardy friendly home.

Twisted since February 2013

 

 

 

With 13 years of dealer experience in service and parts departments, Dave is our Service Manager. At age 13, Dave started on a '79 Honda 250, which was only the beginning of his relationship with 2-wheelers, both off-road and street. Oh yeah, and there was some roadracing mixed in. He'll ride any bike that has the key left in it, but don't worry, he'll fill the tank before bringing it back! What is his dream bike you ask? The Batpod of course!

Twisted since February 2013

 

 

 

 

Michelle is our Countess. By day she takes care of the 'counting and keeps things running smoothly. By night she vanishes into the shadows. She prefers to ride shotgun on her husband's Harley because she actually carries a shotgun.

Twisted since April 2013

 

  

 

Angela joins our Customer Service Department with her 250 Ninja. She got her first bike, a 250 Intercepter, at age 13 and has since moved on to street riding with some track days mixed in.

Twisted since June 2013

 

 

 


Brad is a part of our graphic design team. His riding background helped make him tough enough to handle the rigors of the Twisted office. For starters, Brad started riding at age 14 on one of those Honda ATC three wheeler death traps. Nowadays Brad can be found riding both off-road and street bikes that are less likely to kill you. Brad raced the Elsinore Grand Prix and Adelanto Grand Prix and off-road endurance races like the 6 and 24 Hours of Glen Helen. Brad likes pavement, too. He even raced supermoto for a time and his garage now houses a 2005 BMW R1200GS as well as a 2007 Husqvarna TE450.

Twisted since July 2013

 

 

 


Michael O, our original Mikey, was the first employee to ever join Twisted Throttle in Rhode Island. He abandoned us to go back to school in a foreign land for a few years. We cried. He later came back. We smiled. Veteran of strange bikes such as the Suzuki Bandit 400 and a strange one I can't remember right now from eastern Europe, his needlepoint skills (...or was that acupuncture?) are not to be underestimated. Oh yeah... it was an MZ Baghira. Do you have any parts for him?

Twisted since a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.

 

 

 


Peter brings his experience riding and corner carving to our Web Content Team. Showing up for the job interview on his BMW S1000RR in in the dead of a brutal New England winter, we had a good feeling about him.

Twisted since March 2014


 Steph Danger

 


Steph D. Danger is all we have to say. She currently wrangles all things content related with unreasonable passion.

Danger will soon have a bike and plans to ride everywhere in an aviator hat with ear flaps and goggles. 

When she's not doing that, she's usually saying something absurd and laughing way too loud. 

Twisted since February 2015


 

 

 

Jared P. plays too many video games for his age... not... there's no such thing. 

Jared has been riding since the ripe age of 19. While sport touring is really his main squeeze, he dabbles in off-road and track riding as well. 

With 12 years of motorcyle experience, this guy represents our customer service crew well. He works remotely from California so that our west coast road-dogs get just as much love as everyone else. 

Oh, and he also loves craft beer. Like... a lot. (Never when riding, folks!)

Twisted since March 2015


 Colin P

 


Colin P rode in from the wonderful world of dairy cows to ship farkles to riders around the world. He has been riding dirt, track and street bikes since he was seven and his current herd includes an '02 Honda CBR600F4i and a '14 Honda CRF250L. We have dubbed him Spiderman both for his love of the creepy crawlers and the way he can ride his CRF just about anywhere.

Twisted since May 2015

 

 


Lillian works in our warehouse juggling parts to get them out the door to you! She rides a Kawasaki 900 Vulcan but dreams of a GSX-R 600. Living on a farm gives her a diverse background of video games, fishing and shooting.

 

Twisted since June 2015


 

 


Keith is our intimidating Beard-O... that is until he cracks a grin. He has been riding since he was a mere 12 (presumably with a full beard then too) with an affinity for MX/Touring/Dual Sport bikes. One time, at bike camp, he saw a Superman cape in the middle of the road, picked it up with his foot and wore it for 3 straight days.

Keith is one of our customer service maestro's.

He has Type-O Negative blood. 

Twisted since October 2015

 

 


 

Erich P... This guy... 

Erich comes to Twisted with 8 years of marketing experience and about a zillion miles of road under his cycling belt. He used to ride a motorcycle and he will again, but for now he's just ridiculously passionate about his other two-wheeled beast. 

This guy knows his stuff. A self-proclaimed analytics super-nerd, Erich slays that data and those metrics day in and day out.

 

Twisted since October 2015

 

 

 


Angelica P. comes to us with experience handling "Bridezillas." Clearly she can hang. 

A recent college grad, Angelica enjoys travel, culture & saving the planet. This budding philanthropist is our new PR powerhouse who provides us with severe strokes of genius on the daily. Lightning strikes the same place constantly when this girl is around and we're lucky it's Twisted Throttle! 

 

Twisted since November 2015

 

  

 

 

 

Our Purchasing Manager, Christina R., comes to us from the sports world with 10+ years of experience in sales analysis, buying & demand planning at Reebok and Adidas

This heavy hitter has a pretty serious need for speed. She was heavily recruited at the age of 19 to attend the NHRA drag racing school 'cause she pretty much made a full time job of putting the boys to shame. We like. 

Christina is a black-mustang-driving, cross-fit-addicted, engine-wrenching girl ninja who has only one known weakness... Harry Potter. She loves her some Harry Potter. Don't ever talk smack about HP around her.

Twisted since March 2016

 

 

 

 

Glen is a silent storm in the warehouse. 

He is the KING of assembling parts that go with other parts so that you get a package that you didn't even know used to be in pieces. 

He rides a Victory Kingpin like a boss with the presence of Pitbull the rapper... until you hear him talk and he's just really the nicest guy. Like ever. 

Glen says he has no interesting stories about him to tell. We don't believe him for a second...

Twisted since June 2016

 

  

 

 

Jeff R. is our National Sales Manager. His past work portfolio includes some pretty rad digs, like... ahem... Bose Corporation. Sounded really good to us.

Get it? 

Jeff loves Triumph motorcyles. He knows pretty much everything there is to know about them because well... he was the Regional Manager at Triumph Motorcycles. #what #yep

This guy has been riding for 16+ years, covering some seriously cool ground in that time. Jeff rode from Boston, MA to Austin, TX in the 2015 MS5000 to raise awareness for MS. He came in 3rd in fundraising efforts... no big deal. 

His hobbies include boating, dogs, softball and of course track days. 

Twisted since August 2016
