THE LEGEND OF THE GREMLIN BELL: A BIKER'S TRADITION

THE PURPOSE OF THE GREMLIN BELL

THESE LITTLE BELLS, KNOWN IN THE MOTORCYCLE WORLD AS GREMLIN BELLS, OR SPIRIT BELLS, ARE A KIND OF GOOD LUCK CHARM FOR THE MOTORCYCLE RIDERS.THE BELL IS SAID TO PROTECT THEM DURING THEIR TRAVELS,SIMILAR TO HOW A PENDENT OR IMAGE OF ST CHRISTOPHER,THE PATRON OF TRAVELERS,IS OFTEN CARRIED IN VEHICLES TO PROTECT THEIR OCCUPANTS WHILE ON THE ROAD.

HERE'S HOW THE BELL WORKS;LEGEND HAS IT THAT THERE ARE HARMFUL SPIRITS THAT LURK THE ROADWAYS,ALWAYS ON THE LOOKOUT FOR MOTORCYCLES TO CLING ONTO AN CAUSE MISCHIEF.YOU MAY HAVE HEARD OF UNUSUAL AN HARD-TO-DIAGNOSE PROBLEMS THAT OCCUR IN MACHINES{MOST OFTEN IN ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS} BEING CALLED" GREMLINS" AND SUPPOSEDLY,IT IS THE SAME UNPREDICTABLE AN HARMFUL SPIRITS THAT CAUSE PROBLEMS FOR MOTORCYCLES AND THEIR RIDERS.

THE GREMLIN BELL IS A WAY TO WARD OFF THESE SPIRITS.IT IS SAID TO WORK BY CAPTURING THE IN THE HALLOW OF THE BELL AN INFURIATING THEM WITH THE CONSTANT RINGING UNTIL THEY RELEASE THEIR HOLD AN BREAK FREE, RETURNING TO THE ROADWAY TO FIND ANOTHER UNSUSPECTING RIDER without A BELL TO HARASS INSTEAD.

THE RULES OF THE BELL

THERE ARE SOME "RULES" HOWEVER, TO THE GREMLIN BELL AN HOW IT WORKS.

*IT SHOULD NOT BE BOUGHT BY THE USER-IN ORDER TO WORK,IT MUST BE GIVEN TO A RIDER FROM ANOTHER PERSON.ACCORDING TO THE LEGEND, A BELL IS "ACTIVATED" BY THE GESTURE GOOD WILL WHEN SOMEONE,ESPECIALLY ANOTHER RIDER,GIVES IT TO.

*IT SHOULD BE ATTACHED TO THE LOWEST PART OF THE FRAME.BECAUSE GREMLINS LURK ON THE ROADWAYS AN "GRAB" ONTO THE BIKES AS THEY PASS BY, THE LOW-HANGING BELL SHOULD BE THE FIRST THING THEY CONTACT , SO THAT THEY ARE IMMEDIATELY CAPTURED BY IT. IT SHOULD BE ATTACHED SECURELY- SAFETY WIRE IS SOMETIMES USED,BUT THAT CAN CREATE RUST AB SCRATCHES, SO A ZIP TIE IS GENERALLY THE PERFECT METHOD.
