Talking Do you use Twitter and Facebook to Search for Motorcycle Stuff?

So I was talking to my friend Robert. He's just purchased his first motorcycle. He told me that he's been checking out his Facebook and Twitter feeds to try and find deals on aftermarket parts, etc. This sparked an idea for a blog post.

When you are looking for an addition for your bike do you check these things out? If so, where do you go on social networking sites to find deals, etc.?

I know there are a couple places that give like Twitter only deals (ie, LA Choppers has a 10% discount for Twitter followers) but I figured I'd ask the experts here.

Thoughts? Suggestions? Any help is appreciated.

I follow probably about 20 blogs, half of which I prefer to view on facebook rather than my RSS feed. Ive come across some pretty cool 1 day sales on these blogs, so I'd have to be an advocate for the social media sites. The times are changing, and brick and mortar mom and pop shops are falling to the way side. Will they ever completely go away? time will tell......I do all of my own service and repair, so I have no use for them.

I personally don't use FB or twitter for deals. I go through the forums I belong too be cause most of the vendors offer discounts to the members.

@diamond Do you just search through your friends for links and deals they've posted or do you go to certain forums or certain areas of forums?

I don't use either to find products, but rather I use an internet search and look at websites - that and for used things I use Craigslist, which is how I found my bike.

Take care!

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
