03/06/11 Hagerstown

Hagerstown MD
115 miles
5 bikes

We did a group ride yesterday, back roads to Hagerstown to visit Twigg Cycles followed by lunch at Barefoot Bernie’s. Our friend Drew gave us a guardian bell for the new bike. This is the story behind it:

Legend has it that Evil Road Spirits have been latching themselves on to motorcycles for as long as there have been bikes on the road. These Evil Road Spirits are responsible for mechanical problems and bad luck along a journey. Legend goes on to say that by attaching a small bell onto your bike, the Evil Road Spirits will become trapped inside the bell where the constant ringing drives them insane, making them lose their grip until they fall to the ground (ever wonder where potholes come from?). Legend also has it that the mystery of the Guardian Bell carries twice as much power when it is purchased by a friend or loved one and given as a gift.

  1. LOL.. My former spouse gave me one after the divorce for my 883 Hugger. It never went on the bike!! In fact, I sat it on a shelf with some other HD gifts and trinkets and one day I picked it up to dust and the ringer fell out. I think that said it all…LOL
