Friend of mind collects/hoards old cars. He semi promised me an early 60's IB that needed restoration. Then he suffered a big fire that completely melted the front 1/2 of the car. As they say "try and find another"...BTW: In the 60ies, my father had a "Borgward Isabella". He had a built in (DIY) electromechanical "Fahrradklingel" (bicycle bell) for the same purpose ...
I do not care that much if the cyclists are friendly to me. It is more about beeing friendly to others.In Germany one would say "Ferz!". Honestly, who needs something like that? Do you really think that today's cyclists are friendlier to us off-roaders because of it?
Then I have expressed myself wrongly. I meant, I don't think the modern, important, politically correct cyclist distinguishes between the two horn sounds. Anything moving on 4 wheels is annoying to them. Even when I am on the road with my Series IIa, it is predominantly the "old people" who rejoice, wave and smile. And I am more polite and courteous than most others.I do not care that much if the cyclists are friendly to me. It is more about beeing friendly to others.
I normally do not have to use a horn to communicate with cyclists. But I always wanted to have a more silent horn to wake someone up in a friendly way who doesn’t realised that the traffic lights turned green.
I didn't even know if I spelled the word correctly. But Auntie Google proved me right, meaning "superfluous, extravagant nonsense".Are you from "Hessen"?
