Sunday night, I posted this photo on Instagram
and tagged Biltwell
in it because I was wearing their helmet and bubble shield (if you look closely, their handlebars are gloves are in the bubble shield reflection too). It's not the first time I have tagged them in a photo, but nothing has ever happened.
Well, Monday morning Biltwell re-posted my photo on their Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter accounts and my Instagram feed proceeded to blow up with new likes, comments, and new followers, which was awesome. It was simply incredible to watch the "Like" count rise on their pages to over 2,500 combined. It certainly helps that Biltwell has about 45,000 followers on Instagram.
I have been a fan of Biltwell and their products for years. I have had their Clubman bars on my Sportster since 2010 and have been wearing their Moto Gloves nearly as long (I actually have a backup pair new in the package, just in case). I put their Sanderson pegs on my bike in 2012, bought their goggles in 2013 (which performed great in Arizona
), and I picked up a Gringo helmet and a pair of bubble shields earlier this year that I have been thoroughly enjoying.
Now I'm just waiting patiently for my Super Selfie Award to arrive in the mail.
