    You will need to find a place to put the trumpets, tank and the compressor. Aside from that pretty straight forward. There are other louder (not louder than the train horn) horns that probably wouldn't take up as much space and would be considerably cheaper, such as the Wolo Bad Boy.

    Pretty common in the motorcycle world to use an automotive horn. Any cheap automotive horn will work.

    Or grab an 12v electric marine unit from a boat yard/wrecker if you can. They are not train horn loud but are pretty much semi truck loud and without the compressor/lines/tank complexity.
    I've got a dual trumpet chrome unit that I'd love to fit to my machine, but finding a good spot where it's not hanging out ready to get stripped by a tree branch, or not be right behind my head, is proving to be a challenge.

    I doubt I'd get away using one on my trail. I'll make the local paper and I'd be found in a heartbeat and banded. LOL

    Got a lot of seniors dog walking and that could result in a heart attack. I don't have a horn currently by the way.

    Got my auto horn behind grille in front of radiator pointing down, sometimes it gets water in it on a wet day and not very loud but always dries out lol. I am thinking about a more serious horn tho.........
