Rob L Posted May 8, 2006 Share Posted May 8, 2006 Last night I went to Mass and was riding out of the subdivision. As I approached an intersection, I saw a truck driving directly at me in my lane. There was no where to go!! The driver was ogling some ladies who were standing on the sidewalk and not paying any attention to where he was going. I grabbed brakes, headed for the curb, and tried to blow the horn. NO horn! The ladies cringed which caused the driver to look up and slam on his brakes just in time. He immediately appoligized. I looked down at the dash wondering why the horn had not worked. My left turnsignal was on! I had pushed the turn signal instead of the horn. I have done this before inadvertantly. This is probably my biggest gripe with BMW controls... I hate the pacement of the horn button I have ridden BMW bikes with this design for well over 100k miles and still miss having a button that I would push in instead of up. Link to comment
