In terms of adding a safety item to the ride this one was probably one of the most important. This horn is louder than my car horn. I love my Ryker but the horn was sort of a joke. It sounded like a bleeting lamb, if even that loud! The loud one was on sale for $29.95 and if it was three times as much I would still gladly purchase it. Incredibly easy to hook up and no problems with hood hitting. Seriously, interloping vehicles can hear me coming! The only problem I have with this horn is what am I going to do with the cheesy one that came with the Ryker? I guess I’ll throw in the ocean!
