I have a set on my motorcycle, andlet me tell you, people REALLY get out of the way when I hit the horn button!

I have the Hella Horns advertised in Griot's and they work fantastic. I just added them to my existing horn system and it has the "double whammy".

I also have thought about AIR horns. I drove for 45 yrs over the road. I didnt use them that much but they were always there in case I needed them. Big trucks are required to have both air and electric horns. I think they would be extremely valuable in todays society. because of all the distracted drivers on CELL PHONES and TEXTING and not paying attention to the job at hand with is DRIVING. I dont use my horn sometimes to warn others who I am trying to pass and seem to want thier half out of my lane. I do however use my horn sparingly so as not to cause someone to go into ROAD RAGE.
I think I have a pair of Plastic Horns and a compressor in the barn that came off my fathers MH. Ill have to look in da barn when I get the airstream out.

For those that don't want to fool around with compressors, "The Persuader" horns by Wolo are a great ones. We've got them, and, believe me, they get your attention!

The other day we were in the left lane and the two cars in front of us decided to turn left. THere was no turn lane so we and other traffic had to stop. All of a sudden this PU truck blew his horn as he passed the first car turning left. They must have installed a train horn under the hood. Made us jump out of our skins. If we were moving I would probably have driven off the road. I understand having a louder horn than what a lot of vehicles have but an extremely loud one like this one was is way more than necessary and will likely cause someone to have an accident.
