EXETER â€“ Youâ€™ve got to hand it to Erik Stephens: he really knows how to throw a party.
Last Saturday, on both his 36th birthday and the 10th anniversary of his company Twisted Throttle, throngs of motorcycle aficionados showed up to celebrate the opening of Stephensâ€™ spectacular new 27,000-square-foot establishment.
The business manufactures, distributes and engages in online sales of all things motorcycle, making it a Mecca for weekend road warriors wanting gear, apparel and hard-to-find parts, some of which require custom production.
