When you get you Buddy ready to ride after the long winter; check your air filter!! I knew we had a bunny family living in our garage, but who made their home here?

Pack rats, or small squirrels, I imagine. Cap your exhaust next winter.

Gremlin Bells & Turquoise The turquoise is an ancient symbol of protection from falls, notably from horseback. My horses are all gone now so hopefully the tradition will transfer to my Buddy. Smile

Huh. I’m apparently the last person to have heard of this motorcycle/horseback tradition, but it has barely been mentioned here or Modern Vespa.

We had a problem with finding tree frogs in my wife's scoot. We live in hurricane country, so the trees get blown away every decade or so. The tree frogs are looking for something to climb, so they are attracted to our scooters.

Gremlin bells are certainly well known among Harley riders.

But supposedly, you need to receive a Gremlin bell as a gift for it to be effective Confused
