Did not really want to stay with the Motorcycle theme this week but this is the most interesting superstition that I personally practice. Good luck to everyone this week, thanks for looking and comments are always welcome.

The Legend of the Bell:

"Superstition has it that evil road spirits have been latching onto motorcycles for as long as bikes have been on the road. These spirits are responsible for mechanical problems and bad luck on a journey.

superstition goes on to say that, by attaching a guardian bell to your bike, the evil spirits will become trapped inside the guardian bell. There, the constant ringing will drive them insane, making them lose their grip until they fall to the ground.

The Guardian bell is most powerful when given in friendship or love, this is the strongest magic of all ."

In a different life, seemingly a thousand years ago, I studied Eastern Religions. In these the ringing of a gong, bells, cymbals, etc. are thought to ward off evil spirits. I never take out my bike without my "Spirit Bell". Good luck. Jim

Thanks for the comments Jim, sounds like you have led a very interesting life and it would be fun to hear some of the stories from those days, also nice to know you ride as well.
