Luis Aponte was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico. His passion for motorcycles started early, at 12 years old, when he walked into a motorcycle tattoo store located in Old San Juan. That same day he bought his first Harley Davidson t-shirt.
After that, he asked his father to take him to the Harley Davidson dealer named Motor Sport. In 2005, he bought his First Harley Davidson. It was a 1999 Sportster 883 which was completely customized from the paint job, extended swing-arm, chain conversion, and a lot of chrome to the upgraded 1250cc engine. In 2007, he was hired by the same Harley Davidson dealer that he use to visit as a child.
In 2008, he bought his second Harley, a 2008 Street Glide, a year later he decided to start his own company Aponte Motorcycle Detailing & Transportation. He gained a lot of popularity all over Puerto Rico offering these services. The demand was so high, that the clientele started requesting mechanic repairs. In 2010, he started training to become a basic motorcycle technician at the American Technical Institute located in Bayamon, Puerto Rico. His business continued growing while servicing Puerto Rican bikers. In March 2012, he moved to Florida to further his education and enter into the Harley Davidson Technician Program, Motorcycle Mechanic Institute in Orlando, FL.
On April 1st, 2013, He and Anthony Alvarado open Twisted Throttle Motorcycle, LLC
Since his childhood, he was always involved in the motorcycle world. He was young as well when his journey for the love of motor sports started. Even as a young rider. he always tried to fix things himself. From 2000 to 2002, he studied to be a technician.
In 2001, he started working for Suzuki in Puerto Rico. That is when he expanded his knowledge in the field. Like most other riders who want more from their bike, Anthony Alvarado started learning and gaining more knowledge about performance and racing. Working all those years with Suzuki made him the great mechanic that he is today. In 2009, he entered into the drag racing World while he was stationed in Colorado, while in the ARMY. He started motivating his friends on drag racing until he involved them on the sport, by that time, in 2008, he was racing a Gsxr1000.
Mid 2009, he decided to move to Florida, without knowing anyone he started working on motorcycles. With time, he started to gain friends and customers alike.
In 2010, the result of him racing his customized nitrous Gsxr1000 gained his confidence in building performance bikes. His hobby turned into a fun job for him. He takes great pride in his work and is always trying to be the best he can; he always tries to push the limits.
In 2013, he met Luis Aponte. They both decided to open what is now known as Twisted Throttle Motorcycle, LLC. They proudly run this motorcycle shop and appreciate every single customer who have supported them.
