I seen this on several bikes. They tie money to one of the cables in the front, usually the front brake cable on the inside on the bike. I seen this on 3 bikes already. Just wondering does anyone know why?

I believe those are dollar bills given by other people for good luck

My buddy tied a dollar bill to my brake cable for good luck when I first bought my bike... Similar to when someone puts change on the floor of a new car or tie a dollar to the holy sh$t handles... It's common place up here from what I can tell... Most of the guys I know that ride have one some where on their bike including the bells.

Bought my 08 CBR off a guy in Brooklyn, and after i brought it home I noticed he tied a bill on the brake cable. Cant really see it or notice it unless your looking for it.

never seen it out here.

californians are kinda isolated.
Ya..I guess so. I've never seen, nor heard of this til now.

Only superstition I know of directly tied to money is if you give somebody a wallet as a gift. Meaning, it shouldn't be empty when you give it to them.
