Meep, meep! I'm right here!

Two hours ago, this happened. Thought I'd share.

I should have gotten off the V to go take his right mirror off. He obviously didn't need it. I could use the money.

I bet that horn made her wet her pants. Why was this a surprise, the car was obviously trying to get over to the right lane. You weren't paying attention.

Yes, I know the car wanted to get into my lane. I am fully aware of that. As for the driver, no turning signal and merging over when I am a foot away from the rear bumper is the problem. Yes, I could have swerve away or moved over a bit, but I didn't.

There is right of way and there is right or weight. Take your pick & put your money or a$$ down.

Stock, chid. Denali or Stebel's air horn is my next upgrade. I have just been lazy on getting it.

I have seen someone with two installed. I may be doing that.

I put a compact air horn on, have used it "against big rigs" and they swerved back in their lane. a single is good. Not too sure about putting 2 on.
