Oh I totally agree...which is why I honestly didn't think Brammo would be doing the Evangelista thing again...none of us did or do as much as BFan...this site...near endless tweets, hanging with Brammo and Chelsea Sexton and all that.
But I do think there are different ways to "proselytizes"...it doesn't have to be blogs and tweets...
EmpulseBuyer's calculator is a great idea well done. He also has a website. And more....
I try to go any place and every place and take lots of photos and answer tons of questions (if I had a nickel for everytime I've ended a conversation with a stranger by saying, "B R A M M O, they have a great website, check it out", well I'd have a lot of nickels). Nothing against blogs and twitter, but I do more each time I smoke a car out of a red light, slow down and then talk to the person in the car about the bike at the next red light...and then smoke them again...but that is because I talk to a lot of people while out riding, but my blog and twitter is mostly read by my family.
Should I blog more? Heck yes. Should I twitter more? Probably, but again my twitter circle is kinda small.
But riding out to Coffee at Dawn and hanging with a hundred motorcyclist, or riding the Enertia out to the Warrior Dash (knowing I will have to spend a long down time to charge each way at Subway) and parking at the Entrance so over 10000 people have to walk by the Enertia, or riding in Parades and Toy Runs...well that actually reaches more people than I can on twitter...but that's just me and my style of "spreading the word."
As is doing my Breaking Bad photo tour, and working toward a possible special surprise on that front.
As is maybe
being the first motorcycles in 40 years to have Pebble Beach's OK to ride on 17 Mile Drive.
As is setting up a photo shoot with the Durango Steam Train so I can get the Enertia up on the Depot next to the train to highlight Old and Beautiful meets New and Beautiful. 7/7/12 if anybody wants to join me
As is writing to the Trinity site to try and get special permission to ride the E to the site of the first Atomic Bomb test...which is only open twice a year...no answer yet, but it WILL happen
. As will the Very Large Array.
And so is getting permission from Brian to ride the Enertia below stated in the manual temps, just so I could ride in single digit temps and show that the E can do that....etc etc.
Still, BrammoFan not only did it first...he likely did it best. This site is basically an addiction for me...and a wealth of information...and a great place to hang with wonderful people.
But that doesn't mean it is the only way.
That said, just for you BF, I promise to Blog more...will try to do one this weekend.
Edit..and ps (always a ps)...I did all that and more, not to "win" a bike**, but because I love riding the bike and I want Brammo to do well and for their bike to be seen out and about and in fun locations...the Zoo, the Nuclear Museum, fall photos, winter photos, freaking Ecilpse photos...she is basically an appendage at this point that goes just about every where I do...can't wait for the Plus so I can ride twice as far...and for ever further trips, heck I bought a freaking pick up...I'm 50 years old and have never owned nor wanted a pick up...now I couldn't live without it
**not that I wouldn't love a free or discounted Brammo motorcycle...I just seriously thought Brammo wouldn't do it again...it has been a while since it was done and a while since Brammo has talked about it.
Pss...does this count as a Blog post?
