Honk it if ya got it

I was out with the wife in her cage and noticed the dual note horn had lost its lower note leaving it sounding like a Toyota Prius or maybe a 50cc scooter. Instead of paying the dealer $60 for a replacement, I took the opportunity for an upgrade. I selected the Stebel Nautilus compact air horn that a lot of my fellow bikers have used to replace sick sounding motorcycle horns. I am quite happy with this little puppy. It makes some noise (enough to make the timid soil their armour), and it has a pleasant, almost Ferrari sound to it. I found someone online who had a sound bite of it I include for your amusement. Here the Horn

Nice, I didn't realize the sound was so pleasant (but still loud as hell). I definitely have to get one of these this summer. The stock horn on the F650GS is more of a whimper than a honk.

Sounds like an elephant sitting on a harmonica. But if it clears the way, it's good with me!

I was thinking the harmonica also, funny. Joker just took it one step further with the elephant. Cool sounding with or without the packaderm. Can you use the horn with the stock cover on the bikes? I might check it out.

Dave,
it is too big to fit under the stock cover of a Harley :(
