HIPPY HIPPY SHAKE
Referring to the ‘Hippy Bell’ on the Triumph T160 which Frank mentioned in The Shed, it’s actually a ‘Gremlin Bell’. The legend is that a small bell close to the ground on a bike attracts the evil road spirits who live on the bike and cause mechanical mayhem. The cavity of the bell attracts these little people but the constant ringing of the bell drives them insane and they lose their grip and fall to the ground, and that is how pot holes occur in the road.

Brilliant! I’d not heard that one before. I shall seek out a supply of gremlin bells. They must be common enough, given the state of so many roads. FrankW
