1. Do you believe in things like Gremlin Bells (or as Soupy calls them Gay Bells)?

2. Do you have one on your bike? Did you buy it or was it given to you?

3. Would you put one on your bike if someone gave it to you?

4. Would you give one to someone?

I was going to add a pole, but I guess I'm not smart enough :(


So I will start.

1. It can't hurt and I will take any advantage I can get
2. No I don't, buying your own is bad juju and no one has given me one
3. In a heartbeat
4. I have before and would do it again.

1. Generally no, but sometimes it's fun to be superstitious.

2. No, and what's the point in buying one for yourself?

3. Hell yes!

4. If I had a close friend who also rode, yes.

My ears were burning..........now I know why!!

My wife got a couple of those bells that she hangs in her car.

She says, "the idea is that you are not supposed to drive faster than your Angel can fly. MY "Angels" are REALLY FAST!!"

I have to be honest.......if someone gave me one, I wouldn't know where to PUT the dang thing. (And I STILL think they're "gay!")

1. Nope... not superstitious.

2. Don't have one.

3. Probably... but not out of superstition, rather in the spirit of camaraderie and brotherhood between bikers, essentially what the ride (gremlin) bell stands for.

4. Yes... depending on the situation... if it would mean something to someone I knew.

No

No

3. Would you put one on your bike if someone gave it to you?

It depends on the situation, the timing, and who gave it to me. Unless someone gives me one, I'll never know.

4. Would you give one to someone?

Not unless something happens to change my mind, no.

1. No

2. Yep, two actually. I would never buy one for myself.

3.Both given to me by friends w/in a week of buying my bike.

4.Yep, I've even sent one to a member of the forum in an attempt to get a request thread going.

Folks who think they're stupid, probably don't have any friends that would give them one. ;)
Or in some cases any friends at all. :D <nudge, nudge>

When l first started working at the hospital, l was on night shift. On about my 3rd night, at about 3am, l walked into the ER, went up to a nurse l had just met the day before, and announced out loud in front of God and everyone, "Wow! lt sure is nice and quiet in here!"

Within 15 minutes the place was packed, and no one would talk to me for a month. When they finally broke the silence, their statement was short and sweet.

"We don't say the Q word here. lt's bad luck."

I have one that was given to me, but with seven bikes I simply hung it up on my garage door.

4. Would you give one to someone?
Possibly.

I'm not superstitious. My youngest daughter was born on Friday 13th. :)

I don't necessarily believe in Gremlin Bells but I do like that they represent someone caring about you and your safety.

I don't have one.

I would put one on my bike!

I would definitely buy one for a friend.

Critter, the next time I go somewhere that I can get one I'll send you 2, 1 for each bike.

I have a pen that is an angel riding a motorcycle...not a Hell's Angel...and I do wear that on my jacket. I also wear a cross necklace fairly often.
