Used to have one, it kept getting taken off when the cars went for service. It's nice and reassuring, in a way. Though I agree with Ishan and Gogi as well.

I agree with Iraghava and v-16 somewhat.
But i do have an emblem. Not of any god though. Its the symbol "AUM" with gayatri mantra embossed.
Next time i am going to get emblem of Lord Shiva.

I have a rosary hanging from the rear view mirror, and a small cross which is kept near the speedometer. While not overly religious, i do believe in it.

I too have the rosary hanging from the rearview.
But think of people having all this in their cars and drive harshly, abusing fellow road users. I feel this is hippocratic. What do you feel?

We have a pciture of Guru Nanak in all the cars and have a Khanda as well, even on my bike. Like v1p3r mentioned, gives you that reassuring feeling.

When i bought my bike, i had my friend's Grandpa bless it, and also stuck a small pic of Jesus near the speedo console. The sticker didnt last long, but the blessings remain.

Me getting pious?? No way..!!!

No I dont have any thing on my bike or will keep anything in my car (the day I buy one). Yeah but i always make it a point to recite a small prayer before the ride or drive . Or even if i am a Pillion or a passenger.

I don't. I'm not at all religious (spiritual, maybe). And I agree completely with Ishan & V16.
