motorcycle horn sucks

I love my motorcycle but the horn is a sissy horn and I need to replace it with another horn for when I am riding in town. you guys made some excellent recommendations about panniers packing for my trips. That said, I need a better & louder horn. I look forward to hearing your recommendations.
thanks,
JP

I use a Ring REH100/300 and at 112 dB it certainly gets noticed, sounds more like a truck than a motorcycle. For me certainly improves safety over stock horn.
Very simple job to swap over with existing horn.
At 11.54 including delivery it is a small price to pay for such an improvement.
The above is from a previous post. For cost, benefit and fit (very quick) I doubt there is much out there to match this horn.

I installed a Denali SoundBomb Mini Horn. It is a direct replacement - installation took about 5 minutes and it is MUCH louder than the OEM horn. Cost is around $30 and is widely available (at least in the USA). Thoroughly recommended.

Stebel Magnum low tone goes virtually straight on with no problems and is nice and loud.
