Stebel Horn Tested: Passed with flying colors
I installed a Stebel air horn under the left fairing on my 08 Versys a couple of weeks ago using pictures and instructions posted on the Versys Forum. Yesterday as I was commuting home from work, I was riding along getting close to home on a 4 lane city street. I was in the left lane (by the center line) when a sub compact caught up to me from behind but in the right lane and going the same direction. I was never in the blind spot. The car caught up and was right beside me and the driver (30 something female) began "sharing" the lane with me and was working her way over to either hit me or force me into the oncoming lane. When I noticed this taking place, I tested my new air horn with a 5 second blast. Suddenly she awoke from her coma and went back into her own lane. I noticed a very irritated look on her face. I resisted the urge to communicate with her using sign language and just kept an eye on her. Her male passenger just shook his head. Words can't express how much I like this horn. It can even be heard on the freeway by drivers with windows up. Along with extra brake lights and a brake light modulator, the horn is a great safety feature. I highly recommend it. I tap the horn button every once in a while in traffic just to test it and everyone around notices. It's a very satisfying feeling!
