Yeah I have a St. Christopher medal in the rear seat of my bike and my Icon Leather jacket actually came with one inside the chest pocket on the inside of the jacket. I didn't notice until about a month after I had bought it. I though it was awesome! Not everyone is Catholic though so you cant expect a lot of people to have one. LoL
Faith- in a God, a symbol, one oneself, whatever, can be a powerful tool, whether there really is a God or Gods or not. (I tend to lean toward the "not", myself, but like to keep my options open...)
Faith works with the subconscious mind as an enabler.
Anyone who has studied martial arts or sport (especially a precision sport, like... riding a motorcycle) at a high level knows this.
I have a couple o-mamori I picked up at various temples in Kyoto, which I use in competiton in my sport (past World Games and World Championship archer), not because I am Buddhist (I am not) but, because I choose to give my subconscious good tools to work with.
So, don't dis someone because of their good luck charm- because of the power of faith and the subconscious, it might really help!
