Cross Classic Horn Upgrade

After having an 18 Wheel Cage come into my lane, completely oblivious of me... my CR... or my Amazing stock horn, i am looking at upgrading my beep, beep. Anyone done this on the Cross Classic? Suggestions... Brands... Location ?

I see plenty info on other bikes, just not the Cross Classic

Thank You

I went with a Stebel air horn, which is as loud as you would want a horn to be. I personally did not want to show the horn anywhere, so I installed mine under the rear fender, from where it's been happily blasting for over two years now. Here's a thread with pics of my install: http://www.victoryforums.com/showthread.php?t=4443.

Not really on point here, because I have an XCT, but just for general reference:

1) I went with a Stebel Nautilus (compact air horn) for the second bike in a row:

A) See images 9 - 16 in my XCT gallery (link below, in signature).

B) See images 38 - 42 in my Burgman gallery, http://www.billanddot.com/burgman/ .

2) On the bike prior to those two, a Valkyrie Interstate, I started with a dual-trumpet air horn, and eventually switched to a four-electric-horn system (there was a lot of room underneath the Valk).

3) However, what I think you should really do is add a train horn, the way this fellow Valk rider did: http://www.horseapple.com/Valkyrie/Tech_Tips/Train-Horn/train-horn.html . Requires just a slight amount of fabrication, and an air storage unit, and a compressor, and...

I installed a Wolo BadBoy air horn inside the front fairing. I made a bracket and installed over the radio where the XM module would install. Nice and loud.

I would suggest that you not ride next to 18 wheelers as the driver more than likely did not even see you due to the large blind spot they have.

I installed a Screaming Banshee in the fairing of my 2012 XCT. Had a cager in an suv move into my lane on the freeway. As I moved to the left to avoid him, I laid on the horn and he quickly got back into his original lane. The horn works!
