I rarely use my alarm now, as with the Buffalo Horn added, it makes a hell of a noise - just when I set it.

I know that is the idea if it is triggered, but I reckon it is problematic for setting the alarm and for a false / unnecessary alarm.

I would like a setting where you would get a flash of the blinkers to show it's set, but full sound if it is triggered - that might work better.

When we were on the forum ride up to Byron Bay last year, on the way home one of the bikes went off. It had an aftermarket horn on it, just to spice up the neighbours. The rider went to pack the bike and set off the alarm. Then he had to go searching for the fob to shut it off while somebody else tried to keep things quiet by stuffing a shirt of something into the horn.

The rest of us just kept on packing our gear, we are not the kind of people to be making sardonic comments to a fellow rider suffering such a misfortune. 🙂

And now back to Lyle's question. Yes, your bike has an alarm, they all do.

Thanks Shifty

will find my screwdriver set and dismantle the FOB to check it out  -  also one of those "see what makes it go" moments

A few years ago there was a write up in the Ulysses club magazine for a modified bike horn. It paired the stock horn with a very loud one and was controlled by a programmable chip. If you just tapped the button you got the stock horn, and if you held the button for longer than a second or so (programmable time) you got the loud horn. It was set up like this so you could alert a pedestrian with a short tap, but get the attention of that 4wd about to change lanes on top of you.

I reckon that would solve the problem of arming the bike with the Buffalo horn. However, I've no idea who was making them or where to get one.
Cheers, Kim.
