Stock horn really never worked in the first place. Mounted a Stebel Nautilus on the side of the engine...

Put a bumper sticker like I have on my car "Horn broke, watch for Finger!"

I can't honesty say I have ever used a horn in "Anger" When it's hitting the fan I use every second I have to get out of the way/stop/power out what ever and reaching for the horn very low on my list.

The Versys The Prius of Motorcycles....why if that wasn't true they'd be fighting words!

I use my horn more to frighten the critters I come across on the back roads. I have blown the horn more than once and had the dumba$$ LOOK at me and come on over forcing me out of my lane anyway. Maybe that's why I don't have a CCW...I like to see then ignore that .45 Horn's noise. But I'd likely end up in jail and what's the old saying "there's never a policeman around when you need one" but stand up for yourself and they'll be dozens around to nail YOU.

Take that back Mr. fox...!

Or at least modify the statement and put a West-coast disclosure on it?

The sighting of a Prius causes acid reflux for me. In my part of town it represents a certain type of occupant-voter I typically disagree with. Let's just say they would like everyone to have a facking Prius.. but would rather have another group PAYING FOR IT.
