I love my Stebel air horn....I don't use it much, but when I do its gets the attention it deserves :wink2:
I had my son riding pillion w/ me, in traffic, once, and a car was starting into our lane from my right. I hit the horn button (Stebel Nautilus, since replaced by a WOLO Bad Boy when it failed) and the approaching vehicle almost rolled getting out of our lane, obviously thinking we were a Peterbilt or Kenworth.I love my Stebel air horn....I don't use it much, but when I do its gets the attention it deserves :wink2:
I have not had great luck with the compact air horns. They just don't seem to last. I started leaving the stock horn in place and use the stock horn connections to trigger the relay for the air horn. That way if the air horn dies I still have the beep beep. I have thought of adding a delay in the relay so if I just quickly tap the horn button I only get the stock horn and if I hold it the air horn kicks in. That would have saved you from the cop situation.I had an issue w/ my '08 and its WOLO Bad Boy horn about a year or two back.
I pulled up (in a right-turn lane) behind a woman in an SUV (right-turns OK on the red in AZ), and she's just sitting there. An LEO in his cruiser is on the right shoulder. I wait a bit (NO traffic coming from the left), then 'tap' the horn. She's STILL not moving (NOW the light has turned green), so I gave her a couple of longer 'beeps'.
FINALLY she starts moving, as do I, and I see the LEO's beacons come on, following us into the right turn, then he pulled ME over. I asked WHY he had pulled me over when she was obviously not watching traffic (I sort of wondered IF she was impaired...), and he told me that you can ONLY use your horn in emergencies. I said "But she's obviously NOT watching traffic!" to which he replied "You don't know what was in front of her!" which OF COURSE I did - NOTHING!
Mr wealth of information and help on the Versys\;]
