Not to bring back an old topic, but I just placed an order for five more Gremlin Bells. Three are spoken for.:action:

That reminds me, we hung one on CJ's ST1300 before they left for the BRP. I'm sure they will bring peace of mind to the lucky recipients!

As the legend goes, you can't outright ask for one, it must be given as a gift. Just post that you don't have one and someone will offer to send one. And remember, "get one, give one".


[align=center] Have you noticed that some riders have a small bell hanging off their motorcycle frame or handlebars? Have you wondered what the purpose is? Well, you have come to the right place. That little bell is more than decoration, it serves a very important purpose – it wards off gremlins, also known as evil road spirits.[/align]​
[align=center] You see, there are motorcycle gremlins that LOVE to ride, but they are also mischievous little devils and they cause all sorts of problems for you while you are riding. Some say they are responsible for that old lady in the minivan not seeing you and cutting you off in traffic. Or, you may be having trouble shifting smoothly, your battery goes dead, your turn signal suddenly refuses to work, an oil spill appears out of nowhere, you hit a patch of black ice, etc – you get the idea. Those little gremlins look for trouble and try to steer your bike towards it.[/align] [align=center] Now, once you get a bell on your scoot – it wards off these attacks from the little gremlins, not allowing any more to get onto your bike. If you already have some gremlins riding with you, they will get trapped in the hollow of the bell, and the constant ringing will drive them insane – causing them to lose their grip and fall to the roadway. [/align] [align=center] Do you have the protection of a gremlin bell? If you buy a gremlin bell of your own, the power works. If you receive the gremlin bell as a gift – the powerful magic of the bell is doubled. Do you have a friend who does not have a gremlin bell yet? Why not be the person to give them one, they'll thank you! The bell, and a good preventive maintenance program by the bike's owner, will help eliminate the gremlins.[/align]​

Once again you guys are the greatest, I have never heard of Gremlin Bells before today. My wife just got her license 2 weeks ago and I will have to make sure that I pick one up for her. Thanks again as this will mean it is a gift and not purchased by her.

Blaine.

Ok, here is a question on this subject, is the bell transferable??

I have the one that I had on my previous bike.

I just ordered 5. Send me a PM if you don't have one. By the way, cough, cough :D, I just got a new to me 1200 Aspy. Normally my daughter takes care of me, but she has been slow to take the hint this time.

I just found out about this recently when I found a bell attached the to my "new" Goldwing. I hadn't heard of it before, which is nuts considering that I was raised around motorcycles. Maybe it's a new thing? Either way, it might be new to bikes, but it does actually have a history.

There are/were actual folk beliefs that related to bells scaring away mischievous "gremlins." Certain Norse tales tell of wights, or land-spirits(alfs, gnomes, dwarfs, pixies, etc), often benevolent but frequently troublesome, used to hate the sound of bells tolling from churches all the time, and many decided to relocate to avoid them.
