I'm holding out for the triple trumpet that sounds like a diesel locomotive...... The compressor might be as big as a top box I'm thinkin'

I had an air compressor horn on my Vstrom...it was loud, but it took a second to get pressure up. Electric horns are immediate.

Virginia

Virginia law states that all warning devices must be approved by the Superintendent. A train horn could be used as part of an alarm or anti-theft system. However, it must be installed so that it cannot be used when the vehicle is in motion.

I've considered the Screaming Banshee.

A friendly toot or hold longer for the blaring horn. and flashing lights if you hook it up like that.

I haven’t made any really bad decisions lately... I’m getting bored.

I had a friend who had one of the Tri-Note Air Horns from a diesel freight engine mounted on his early '80s Gold Wing. He made a custom air tank to get roughly 10 seconds worth of sound before it depleted. It took over 30 seconds to fully recharge that tank. Two trumpets on the left side of the bike, the largest single trumpet (roughly 4 feet long) on the right side, all 3 facing forward.
We were in the parking structure at the Santa Clara Convention center one day when he lit it off. Out in the open it may not have been The Loudest Motorcycle Horn Ever, but on the ground floor pointing inward it sure shook all the dust from the signs and exposed conduit in the place. 😁

The sound can be duplicated with much smaller format horns that don't need a 3 phase 12 HP compressor, LOL....
