Over the last several years, the popularity of social networking sites has skyrocketed. Social network users benefit from various services and perks, including the ability to meet new people, discuss thoughts with like-minded individuals, and keep in touch with old friends and coworkers. In addition, social networks mean contacting other bikers, knowing new places to ride, and getting information about great products and events for a motorcycle rider.
We have put together a list of the top 10 Motorcycle Twitter feeds you should follow:
5 Motorcycle Twitter Feeds You Should Follow
The official Twitter feed for HD makes our top ten because they’re a mogul within the motorcycle community. However, following their Twitter feed also means you get newsworthy updates on events and store specials across the country. You’ll also find a significant community influence on this page with “photo of the day” updates and links to their popular internet series “Rider Stories,” which features interviews with female motorcycle riders.
Shoei Helmets’ official feed for the USA is one of the more fun Twitter accounts to follow because they tweet about the riders who wear their helmets. This is a great feed to follow if you’re interested in professional racing or just a fan of an excellent old photography action shot. Of course, Shoei Helmets USA also tweets about their products occasionally. Still, this feed is focused on their enthusiasm for the sport – something I think we can all appreciate.
Kelly Rogers has another excellent Twitter feed. Not your typical motorcycle feed, Kelly is a super-enthusiast when it comes to motorcycles. Still, she’s got opinions and an activists’ streak – frequently reporting on motorcycle safety concerns. She’s also shared some unique photos of her motorcycle journeys via Twitter.
Motorcycle Safety foundation’s Twitter feed may not be the most lively feed to follow, but this is an excellent resource for motorcycle safety. If you’re following MSF, you’ll get links to their newest PSA campaigns, statistic-based studies they release, and a healthy portion of political happenings pertaining to motorcycling.
If you’re not an HD rider, chances are you’re rocking a bike by Honda Powersports. @HondaPowersprts will keep you updated on new products and Honda events. Best of all (IMHO) is how much interaction you see between Honda and their customers on this feed – they’re showing a commitment to the industry and their loyal customers, which gets my vote.
