Truck style air horns on cruiser??


Recommended Posts

I have a Stebel Nautilus on my cruiser. Very loud. :mrgreen:

 


Yeah I looked at that style which seem pretty accessible. Was looking for the trumpet chrome styley ones, but cant seem to find any at the right length and voltage. Was hoping someone had used or knew of such a thing

 

Legal?

 

Urrrm to my knowledge yes. Haven't really looked into in great serial.

If they don't hear the pipes a horn isn't going to make a difference :lol: :lol:

never seen the point of a loud horn....I cant remember the last time I had to use mine :?

 

Well I don't want them for practical reasons, because let's face it there probably not. Just thought it would be something you don't see everyday and when you do need to use your horn because an idiots in front you, you can scare the living daylights out them lol

I use mine every time I'm cut up on a round about, happens once a week without fail.

 

Not just me then ha

 


then you both need to look at your riding then if your getting in a position to use your horn that often :shock: :?

Well you have no control of people who pull out on you. No one has.


Anyway like I said, the purpose of this wasn't to have a louder one to use all the time. Simply more a looks thing.

It's called anticipation ;-) and not riding in blind spots or too close to other vehicles so if they do change lanes it's not a problem

 

:stupid:


......and READING the road and riding according to the road conditions which, believe it or not, includes other traffic :wink:


If you can't pick up on everything that's going to be a potential hazard to you, you're not paying enough attention or you're going too fast!!!! :x

That is true, however I get pulled out on very often with them having a clear view of me with no other cars in the sight. However they still feel the need to be in front of me. However I think the shitty L plates are the culprit mostly.

Do you ride near the kerb?

I was taught many many moons ago to ride about 1 metre out but generally I'll position myself smack in the middle of the lane I'm in. Unless I'm following another bike, then I'll sit off to one side of them in case they brake suddenly ;)

Of course not... in the middle of the road, I presume like most people. Being closer to kerb from my experience of riding so far people are enticed to make a stupid near miss overtake "to get past the learner" plus that's how I was taught to ride in the middle of the lane.

This is drifting a bit off topic.....but I just want to add that the most important lesson to learn particularly when riding a bike is not to assume that because the road signs or markings show you have right of way that you definitely have that right of way......because some drivers just don't see it that way......and getting wiped out on a bike still hurts....even if it was your right of way!.... :shock:

Anyway.....style is individual....so if truck style horns is what you want.....then go for it..... :wink:

thats sort of what I was getting at Bob


Instead of fitting horns to beep at people learn roadcraft and anticipate what others are going to do and avoid getting close enough to use the horn :)


its far safer to avoid the situation then it is to be in it with a loud horn :)
