My horns saved my life today
No, loud pipes wouldn't have, nor would have my stock horn.

But four sharp repetitive blasts of my two air horns did.

They caught the attention of the young woman that was about to ram into the front side of me and my bike as I rode up 377 to 820. She braked half way into my lane.

It was a combination of my horns, vigilance and quick reflexes, checking my right mirror and veering right in a less than half a second, that saved me from a hard broadside collision and being a statistic again.

No, loud pipes don't save lives: attention, reflexes, reaction and loud horns do.

Adrenaline makes you sweat..........

Air horns rock.
