  • How often do you use the horn on your bike?

    Recently I have been feeling generally obnoxious on the bike and have been using it more than I should.

    Most people use it to make angry noises (while expleting inside their lid and hand gesticulating) at other cars that pull out, don't take off quick enough, and at pedestrians that walk out in the road.

    I find it fun to use in time with music, at children in prams, at people who are trying to have a conversation in the car at traffic lights, in underground car parks, at dogs, and for falsely setting up other road users for violent altercations.

    So when was the last time you used the H-bomb?

    If you don't use it, what do you use instead?

    Not often at all, the contact is probably dead.

    I don't know whether you noticed Marjory, but the criminal fraternity sometimes indulge in practices called pretending and lying.

      I probably don't use it as often as I could or should. Mostly because it is such a pathetic honk not taken seriously as behind the dinky noise is a chick on a little 250.

      If I had a horn that played La Cucaracha, I'd honk frequently.

        usually use it on something else. Sometimes on the bike.

          You can barely hear it over the exhaust, and usually when it's warranted I'm too busy trying not to die to use it.

          So the answer is I use it bugger all.

              Not enough.

              I tend to make a "WTF?" motion with my hand instead. Because I know they've seen me, even if their actions indicated they didn't.

                The horn sounds weak and embarrassing, best just to pull the clutch and give it a few revs wakes people up more than the horn.

                loud pipes FTW!

                  How do you make that motion?

                    Old bikes, never. Couldn't be heard.
                    Current one seems to be fitted with a fog horn, so it gets a bit of a workout every now and then.
                    Can you help with foster care?

                        For those that have a piss weak horn: would you use it more if it was proper?

                              If it's warranted when splitting. Anticipate/calculate moving traffic and then activate whilst swerving/avoiding death.
