this is not actually a problem with my bike,its more of a problem with all the cars cutting me off the road.here in quebec(canada) car drivers dont seem to care about motorcycles.i was wondering if any of you that own a 1982 1200 goldwing installed air horns on them, and where to hide them.

i want to scare the crap out of stupid car drivers that dont seem to know that a motorcycle is a vehicule.

if so maybe some pictures of where you installed them.



thanks

When I drive a car I keep bigger distance to bikes with blinking rear light. It would be probably a good idea to install blinking lights on sides.

I've driven in Quebec. No offense but I don't think the drivers there care about anything, motorcycle, car, truck.....

Scarry, man!:shock::shock:

don't know if you have mud dobbers but would advise piece of window screen over horn opening to keep critters out:action::waving: good luck and have fun. actually i think in looking for chance to use horn helps you be more aware of surroundings. what a bonus:cheeky1:

What's really fun is to coast up behind an un-suspecting bicyclist and blast him with the horns. Man do they really jump up.:cheeky1:No, I haven't done that but some of those smarty pants smug look at how "green" I am people could use it.:pI do like to pull up to my favorite watering hole and give a short blast. It's my "calling card" sort to speak.

In all seriousness, with a headlight modulator, extra driving lights and the horns, I feel I'm doing everything possible to be seen.

I had a set of air horns on the '66 Chevy truck I used to drive in high school. We had the most fun blasting those things at unsuspecting people back in the day. I have made folks jump into mud puddles, up hills and just about mess their pants. That was some great fun once upon a time.

My dad still has the truck, think I will ride over one day this week and see if I can pull 'em off and mount them to the bike.
