Thanks Tom. I solved the problem with the Charger. Only one was hooked up.
Always had a compulsion to have air horns on my truck,
even though I'm overall against horns on cars [rarely
ever really needed and a long blast even more rarely so].
There's probably some standard for car horns somewhere,
but I think it should be impossible to "lay on the horn"!
It should issue an initial couple second blast then
beep intermittently after that, even when holding down
Much more soothing and in congested traffic, less
grating on the ears.
I'm sure your thought would change if you drove in Boston traffic. The way
these fools drive over you ant try to drive through you, I'd venture you'd
be looking for a way to mount a 50 cal on your truck.
Indeed. In the more tranquil and sedate and civilized part of
Where car horns are an aberration and anyone using one in a
long blast immediately identifies himself as being from Boston
(and a pariah to be shunned).
I generally bike commute the 10-11 miles each way to work.
Yesterday, coming in, I broke a chain just short of the
Got a ride home with a coworker in his Subaru Forrester...
with heated seats! My very first exposure to this decadent
feature of infernal combustion engineering!
I liked it!!! Gotta figure out how to put one on my bike!
How warm can I get a bike saddle with 6V/3W bottle generator?
One of my bikes has a home brew 20W headlight powered by a
12V (about 20Amp I think) motorcycle battery. How well might
that sort of power toast my buns?
It's actually not as bad as many people think.
The old truism: dress in layers. Lots of really good
warm/dry fabrics out there now that really help you
keep warm in the cold.
But a heated bicycle seat still intrigues me!
BS!!! It is worse than people think!! <VBG> I've worked out side for
probably 30 years. I agree with layering and LOL Bean and Deluth. But after
a few hours out in 10 or below with wind blowing it flat out sucks!!!
Well my bike ride to work is only about an hour each way.
It's not the same as working out in the cold for hour upon
I've worked full days doing outside carpentry (house/barn/garage
framing) during the winter as well as a groundsman for Clarke
School for the Deaf here in Northampton, and it ain't no picnic
being out in cold weather for hour upon hour.
Yet those crazy skiers and snowmobilers do it *for fun* and
think nothing of it...while someone riding their bike in the
cold for an hour at a time twice per work day is considered
Still, sometime my big lovely Dodge "Global Warmer" has a pull
on me that I can't resist! Screw the bike today...I'm motoring
in to work (I'll rough it out by not having heated seats)!
