Good friend gave me one.....It's on my K
I always thought they were the motorcycle equivelent of the rubber strap my father dragged behind his trucks 'to reduce static electricity from building up".

I thought the tradition was that you couldn't buy one for yourself...they had to be given to you.
None for me, thank you!!

I ordered a pair of gloves from foxcreek leather and they sent me one. I attached it to my beagle's collar and she LOVES it. But superstitious people amuse me to no end.

I don't know which is sillier, the bells of these "bumper nuts" I have seen lately. What's next...

I used to work at an airport doing refulling of aircraft, and aircraft refuelling trucks have ground cables on them, 2 of them actually, one goes to an earth source, just as a tiedown lug in the ground, the other goes to a ground point on the aircraft, on small ones we usually used the tiedown lug under the wing, on larger ones (I commonly refuelled DC9's, 727s, 737s, etc) there would either be a designated point or if not a bolt on the landing gear was fine. We were routinely monitored to make sure we were doing this. So there is some merit to the grounding strap dragging on the ground.

That's what I've always heard as well.
And why I'm in the group with Voni & Layton,...mine was given too me by a friend as a true good-will gesture , so it is on my Roadster.
Can't hurt! and besides the only negative would be sum-a-u-all laughin' at me...I can take it..........
Is there a country/western song about these bells yet?
Recalling one mentioning statue on dashboard.

My wife game me one and it is proudly hanging on my GS. If you still have the ON from the rally in Canada you can see it hanging on my R1100GS under the left side of the Aeroflow screen. I got one for her that she has hanging on her Honda Aero. They're fun. Some of you need to chill out.
