    My wife gifted mine to me. I've had it on every bike except my current one. I haven't found a good place to hang it from yet.

    Nice CYA on the legend:

    The bell, plus a good preventive maintenance program by the bikeÔÇÖs owner, will help eliminate the Evil Road Spirits.

    Tried that - doesn't work well.

    Rabbit's foot on the left and four-leaf clover on other side keep flopping around and blocking the airflow.

    I'll stick with the horseshoe I welded to my sidestand plate.

    My wife gave me one a few years ago, I really don't have anywhere to hang it on my LT, it is not very aerodynamic, so it is tucked away in my top case. I can't really put belief in it but it was a gift and if it gives her piece of mind while I am out riding days at a time it is worth it. If she gave me reflective turd sticker for luck, I would stick it on my bike just for her. (only because it's reflective)
    Then I hope it helps with that final drive too.

    Because I couldn't find a "deer" thread (does that search thing really work??) I decided to post under this 'bells and whistles' thread....

    Now that is a group that belongs together. Two superstitions for the price of one.

    You can believe in them or not but, when gifted a bell you should appreciate that someone cares about you and wants you safe. It's not the bell it's the thought that counts.

    My wife and I gave each other bells. They are a reminder to us that someone at home cares.

    I lost mine recently. A couple of weeks later the biked died while running into the teeth of a strong thunderstorm.
    Diagnosis is that the HES needs to be replaced...Yes, along with the rear tire.

    I hope she gets me another one next year when we go to The Blessing of the Bikes, again.

    I'm not superstitious, but I have a bell on my GSA, at least for now, until it gets knocked off. It was given to me by a very good friend, and the bell is on the bike to honor that friendship. It's not about Gremlins, it's about people who care about you.

    The German engineers would have bought the bells and asked the sales girl to join them for a beer.
