    It's something like a guardian angel to keep you safe or just bring you good luck while riding

    They are supposed to be a gift from a friend - they have twice the power in that situation over buying one for yourself.

    I heard of these from a couple of different people. The ringing of the bell is suppose to drive the road gremlins crazy so the leap off the bike onto easier prey.
