Horns on motorcycles are pretty lame. Usually they sound like a duck with a severe flu. Third party horns are a plenty, one we have even tested (Screaming Banshee ). That was a 140 dB horn, and very useful with cars and trucks that can't really hear you over the noise inside their vehicle.
But you can go better. Much better if we look at what this person has accomplished (on a bicycle mind you). The only problem is that you'll need to sacrifice some space on your motorcycle.
Why?? Because we're talking about installing a real train horn...all 178 dB! The horn itself is enormous, but what do you think about the air compressor?
It does work though... have a look at the video. You'd think There's a train trying to come through. Now imagine this on your motorcycle, splitting lane and the SUV cuts across your path.....

Well, the good new is that the Kickstarter project got fully funded, and the horn is being manufactured and sold. To mark the occasion, Screaming Banshee LLC, the company founded for this horn, sent me a version of their horn to test out........
