|This is the time of the year when many motorcyclists begin taking to the road for travel and fun. But, safety should come first. After making sure your bike is road ready, a little magic isn't a bad idea as an extra safety precaution. A good friend of mine who rides swears by this magical tip. To keep away the gremlins, attach a small bell to your motorcycle. The sound of the bell is said to keep away any bad vibrations. There's just one catch-for the bell to work its magic, it must be given to you as a gift. These bells can usually be found at many motorcycle dealerships. Have a happy, safe season on the open road.
