A co-worker and I bought these. We were at a Bike shop in Toronto and seen about 20 different styles on a rack.

I received one in 1981, and have moved it since from bike to bike. It is on my Wing now, and doesn't look as good as it used to. Don't know if it has done any good, but it has been fun carrying it along through my riding life.

And all the time I thought I had a medical problem with the ringing in my ears. :lol:

Had one on my trike up until last fall.I don't know where or when I lost it but I know I need another one. I guess I don't want to tempt fate any more then I have to, but in my young and foolish days I didn't really care.

Yes, I heard the ringing, could not understand what it was, thought something was happening on the bike.....now that I have it running right with no extra noises, maybe I should put it back on.....or maybe have someone get me a new updated guardian for my bike (the last bell was on the bike when the guy ran over a pot hole and dented the front rim....OUCH!) :shock:

part of the bell legend is to have one given to you, not get one for yourself. I have one on my 1500 the po had on and maybe the original owner put on, he was a preacher in Arizona. superstion or not but I have been protected several times with my guardian bell. keep it as low to the ground as you can.

I went to a bike blessing this spring...when he got to me I asked him to bless me instead of the bike.....why limit being blessed to only being on the bike. He splashed some water on me......so I guess I'm covered for the year, 24/7....what a way to make a livin.....I wasn't even offered a coverage policy..............also, after a call I got no extra discount from Progressive....

I thought they were called Gremlin Bells.....

No Bell but the PO had put a cross in the left rear seat cubby. Looked at it when I got it, said a prayer with it in my hands and put it back into the cubby. So far so good ;)
