I'm very saddened to hear of Ron's passing. Even though I never met him in person, he seemed like a heck of a stand up gentleman. Years ago on the forum there was a discussion on gremlin bells for your motorcycle, and how they have to be a gift from someone. I mentioned that I never had one. Next thing I know, I received one from Ron. Wow, what a nice gesture, sending one over from the U.S. I'm happy to say that it stays proudly on the front wheel of my bike, from my GL1500 to my GL1800. I will think of him every time I look at this bell.
