During my ride Saturday I ran up on a huge flock of birds sitting idly in the middle of the road. I didn't feel like waiting for them to fly off as I rode through them so I started honking my horn. To my surprise my horn didn't work. The birds all flew just as I got to them. There where thousands of them. It amazes me how well birds avoid getting hit. Some of them missed my head by inches. Anyway it prompted me to keep hitting my horn button repeatedly. (We were in the middle of nowhere) My horn is very intermittent. There is no predicting whether or not it will work. Normally a dirty switch can be used and wiggled to clean it enough to get by a little but nothing I did while riding had any effect. Sometimes it sounds normal and other times it sounds really sick and other times it won't work at all. I am an electrician so cleaning a set of contacts shouldn't be a problem but I am wondering if this is something I am going to have to do repeatedly. The bike has 4250 miles on it.
