Randy, I'm with you. I only step on the darn thing when I least expect it. Whenever I've tried to step on the floor switch -- I miss it. (I was not a drummer.)

That is way too funny!

As a Harley Rider, my biggest fear has always been finding that horn button by accident while behind a group of ****'s Angels

Mike,

It's not the other m/c riders you have to worry about, it's the stupid cage drivers. I just had one left turn in front of me last night. Fortunately, I was in my Explorer and not on the bike. But now, he's telling his insurance that there was another car, yada, yada, yada. Both he and his insurance company will be learning something in the not to distant future.

Default Air Horn Floor Button Alternate

All:

I don't know why my 'bird is this way and it really doesn't bother me. My air horns work both from the floor button that has a swing up guard and the center piece on the steering wheel. If I have electric horns (and I have looked for them and can't find them), they don't work so my electric horn switch does nothing.

I am telling you, on our trip from Dallas to columbus I wanted something that shot projectiles at cars, I was getting so angry. I had one guy merge in front of me on the dallas expressway and I was in the center lane, he was going about 35, I was going 50. Everyone on the bus learned what the air brakes were capable of and we learned what items weren't properly stowed.

I ended up no further than a couple feet behind him, and laid into the horn. I am sure he got an earful.

Don't know why people do things like that. Happened to me in Seattle last year. Some idiot in a tiny "smart car" merged suddenly into the "fast lane" in front of me. Do some people just not know the physics of a 40', 50,000 lb vehicle trying to stop or even slow down when someone is less than a "smart car" length in front of you? Guess who would wind up being sued?

Well, I guess this is a "rights of passage" thing for all. Earlier today, I accidentally blew the horn of our bird in the DD garage. Didn't stop until I realized it was coming from my coach. Definitely got the juices flowing.

Always carry a spare pair of underwear too. You'll need 'em when you hit the air horn by mistake!!!
