HomePolish the Bell

This page is a tribute to our fallen brothers and sisters.


It has been a tradition among bikers, for a long time, to run a brass bell on the left swing arm, to remember our brothers and sisters who have gone down riding. It’s a small thing, but the reason a brass bell is chosen is that as we ride it will get dirty and tarnished. Every time we get down and wash and polish it, we are reminded of friends lost, and our thoughts turn to the meaning of being in the wind. As we ride, and hear the bell ring, we know that our brothers and sisters are riding with us. How easy it would be to join them with a single mistake. And maybe, just maybe, the next time a situation comes up, they will be there to help us as long as we remember them by “Polishing the Bell”.
