Just wondering if anyone else out there has heard of guardian bells for motorcycles. After totaling my 2016 Buddy 125 after only 5 months, I decided I ought put one on my new 2012.

In all my years of riding on 2 wheels, guardian bells DO work, BUT, some-1 has to give it to you. So, go and buy your friend 1 and tell him that he should reciprocate.
Good luck..
Now, whats this about 'lighting' up your bike? Lets see it!

tradition is, your not suppose to buy it yourself...a freind/loved one is suppose to give it to you for luck and safety when riding.


Cool

I've always had a guardian bell on all my Harleys given by various girlfriends. Wouldn't be more appropriate to have a Ganesh medallion as he is the Hindu god of good luck? Besides, he seems like a lot of fun.

Very Happy

Those bells from various girlfriends did double duty. Kept you safe and were a sign of time for a new girlfriend.
Good job!!

Yeah, every motorcycle I've sold over the years, I've missed. I can't say the same for all my old girlfriends. Some more than others....motorcycles I mean. Crying or Very sad
It's funny that all motorcyclist have their superstitions and traditions, it doesn't what size.

Happy Easter.

I had never heard of these. When I bought my used buddy scooter it came with such a bell and it is still there, keeping me safe from evil spirits, which I presume come in all forms.
