Does your Strom have a good luck bell?

Title say it all.

A bell given to you for your bike is supposed to be good luck. I've got one on my Wee-Strom given by my brother-in-law (also a biker).

Does your bike have one? Who gave it to you?

Absolutely ... It was given to me by a close friend, and has been on my bike for about 10,000 miles now.

Yes it does. I've got it hanging on the nipple that connects my Givi crash bars. My dad gave it to me.

In Ohio, it is tradition for kids to carry a buckeye in their pocket for luck. I have always carried one in my car's glove box and no serious accidents for over 36 years of driving. Now that I have the strom I carry a buckeye in my tankbag.

Yup hangs from the faring support above the fender and between the forks. Given to me by a true friend.

I just got one recently, given by a very good friend from Canada. His name is water warrior.
Need to find a good place on the bike to hang it on.
