My friend that rides with me gave me a bell that you are supposed to put on your bike. The story/myth goes that the bell helps to repel evil road spirits that try to harm you and that if you have one it helps with mechanical problems as well. Now Iím not a superstitious at all, I was more touched by the thoughtful gesture than the "purpose" of the bell.
Any of you guys have one on your bike? Mine is pretty cool it looks like a barbarian helmet.
