Every year, Twisted Throttle picks a few adventure riders to work with in raising money for charities. We help outfit their bikes and prepare them for round-the-world adventures undertaken to raise money for a good cause. We also provide their trip with added media visibility. If you’re interested in working with us on a charitable project, send your proposals to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Chris “Teach” McNeil
Who is “Teach” McNeil? Teach is a school teacher known worldwide as one of the most skilled stunt riders on the planet.
A two-time XDL East Coast Champion and 2008 Stuntwars World Champion, McNeil has put his ability to the test and WON! A Lot!
We outfitted Teach’s BMW F800GS and S1000RR so that he can do the brutal R&D that none of us are willing to do.
Teach intentionally crashes his bikes during his stunt shows as a way to demonstrate just how durable our crash protection is!
Teach educates us about how well each piece of crash protection performs to see if improvements can be made.
This type of R&D is infinitely valuable in helping us offer the toughest luggage and strongest protection available to our customers.
It’s what we do.
Patrick Trahan Update
18 fractures! That’s the result of hitting a pick-up truck head on at 75 mph. Many of you may recall that Twisted Throttle built and sponsored Patrick on his quest to raise money for Children’s Wish Foundation by circumnavigating the African continent. Patrick successfully raised $5,000.00 for the Foundation. Unfortunately, Patrick’s adventure was cut short just days into the trip. Thankfully, he survived and was evacuated to Johannesburg, South Africa where his injuries were tended to. It turn out that Patrick is a fast healer! He already has plans for an April tour through Morocco. Good for you Patrick!
From Patrick’s blog:
“I do believe in dreams and I will continue the fundraising when I am at home. And even if all doesn’t go according to plan…do not stop dreaming.”
Stephanie Tarian is a sixteen year old with a purpose. This young lady is planning an epic motorcycle expedition that will take her around the world... and Twisted Throttle will be traveling right along with her!
We outfitted Stephanie’s 2011 BMW G650GS with rugged SW-MOTECH crashbars and skid plate for crash protection, as well as sidecarriers with TraX ALU-Boxes to securely carry her long list of necessities. To help light her way, we also installed a set of Denali LED lights!
This expedition will allow Stephanie to introduce adventure motorcycle riding to people of all ages from around the world and inspire young women and men to reach for their goals. Follow Stephanie as she circumnavigates the globe by logging onto the Moto Teen World and Twisted Throttle websites.
