What someone who is not me needs to design and manufacture a two-stage horn. Hold the button for less than a half-second, and you get a demure little meep meep for when the texting asshat in front of you doesn't see the light turn green. Hold it down longer to get the cruise ship horn for when the guy with the bad neck in the Escalade is about to back into you in a parking lot. -------- True story: I lent my VStrom to my buddy Gabe. I'd had the VStrom for over a year, maybe two. Gabe calls within an hour of picking it up, in a panic, to tell me that the horn doesn't work. Gabe spent 7 years driving a cab in San Francisco. Me, I didn't even notice.
