A Gremlin Bell, given from one biker to another, is symbolic of the brotherhood and friendship between bikers. They are more of a tradition that a superstition, meant to capture "road gremlins" that could be out to damage the bike or ruin your ride. The gremlins get sucked into the bell where they're trapped and driven insane by the constant ringing of the bell. The gremlins finally drop to the ground, forming potholes. So goes the superstitious part.

While one can buy a bell, the power of the protection against road gremlins is more powerful when the bell is given by another biker out of friendship.

Here's a decent full story behind the legend, but again - more of a tradition than a superstition...

I for one believe in this tradition. I have had up to 3 Gremlin Bells on my bike at the same time. You can never be too careful.

I know it's not your doing or your company, but Sheesh. Business will do anything to try and make another 1/10% of profit.
Yep, I agree. I thought it was a bit over the top also. and pricey also.
