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
