Just got hit, where's the horn button?

Ever notice you cannot find the horn button as someone stops at the stop sign, then realizes they want gas behind them, so they back up.....onto my new Gixxer 1000.

Rode home, forks OK, plastics need some TLC now. Had it what, 2 months?

I think she felt worse than me. Not a parking lot, public road. Ticket issued. Going to tape it up and see if insurance will let me fix it, or it has to go in.

Glad you're alright. Such a sharp bike, I love it, hope the fix turns out the way you want. Yes, the horn hides in those situations.

Wow that really hurts . I feel your pain. Even if you would have found the horn in time it was probably just a second or two and it not made a difference. There was nothing you could have done in that situation.

They never hear the horn anyways. I almost had a person back into me today, because apparently backing away from the gas pump made more sense than driving forward (no one in front of them)... I didn't stick around to apologize for their missing mirror.
