Back in the day we had a exchange going on here....the definition seems to vary...but I do believe it works best if given....I even have one on my civic....thinking about getting my dog one...lol...

I was given one years ago ... its on the bike..
as a reminder of all my fellow riders that has fallen. ( biker Friends ) a long list over 51 years.
I also have a brass token with my mothers name attached to the bike, R.I.P Mom.

It has nothing to do with the make of the bike. It keeps the road gremlins from biting you, keeping YOU off the pavement ;)

I've always heard that they must be given to you as a gift to work best(not be installed by the gifter ) They should be placed down low nearest to the pavement for best results as well.

My first one may have been grabbed by a gremlin(speed bump).
I did not have in in 2011.
Next one given to me in 2014 is in the bathroom vanity top right drawer.

It's to be given, not necessarily installed, by the giver.

I'm not much on superstition. Do any of you who put an ounce of faith in the bell practice ATGATT? Full face helmet, leather, gloves, boots etc?

Those that consider it a memorial/reminder please disregard.

Not trying to be a Richard, just asking and spurring the conversation.

I’m not superstitious, but for anything that might give cause for peace o mind....And a more harmonious ride/life....

Now Karma, that’s another story...all together :D

The bell is no more effective than a rabbits foot, lucky charm, horseshoe open end up, Amish hex sign, crossing your fingers or heart, etc. See where I was going? Oh I left out masks for the Cuomovirus. The least effective of the previous list I just posted.

Don't have one on my bike but wonder if you can hear the thing rattling and ringing while out riding? If so, that would annoy me.

I have stock exhaust and use a full-face helmet on the highway so i dont use any ear plugs.

Maybe with stock exhaust you could hear it rattling around...
