Stebel Horn Makes Riding Safer

I am without a doubt, 100% positive that just have a Stebel horn on your bike will make you more visible to drivers. How on earth could this be? I have no clue, but all I know is now that I have mine installed and am dying to use it on somebody, nobody has endangered me. It is so damn frustrating.

On the plus side, I took my bike for its state safety inspection today and didn't tell the guy to beware the loud horn. I heard my bike all the way in the showroom of the dealer where I had taken it. I walked back to the service department a minute later to ask the guy what he thought of the horn. He said it startled the sh** out of him, haha.

Picked up the Wee from a dealer today. Now the Stebel doesn't work. Guess I'll start tracing wires.

Imagine how much fun you can have scaring the hell out of Harley riders as you sneak up behind them and pass them blasting that horn

Yeah, I've been waiting months to use the thing on someone. So far I've only been able to make friends shit their pants.

The day will arrive eventually.
