 +It has been a tradition among some of us for a long time to attach a brass bell to our left swing arm, to remember our brothers and sisters who have gone down riding. ((asasial of the XLFORUM http://​xlforum.net/​forums/​showthread.php?​t=964668&​highlight=legend+bell&​page=2)) \\
 +It’s a small thing, but the reason a brass bell is chosen is that, as we ride, it gets dirty and tarnished. \\
 +Every time we get down to 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, and 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. \\
