Where to put horn ?

Looking to possibly tuck the horns off of the fork area and mount a fork bag in place. Can I leave the horns where they are w/o interfering with the fork bag or should I move em and where is the best place to put them if I move them.

one on either side of the bike in place of the ears would have been my choice.

I had my horns mounted behind my fork bag...worked good, now I have them hidden behind the neck covers.

You can remove the horns and replace them with a much louder air horn for under $40 like the attached photo.

I hate to say when i took mine off 2 years ago i intended to relocate them to the neck cover. instead they are still located in the top right hand drawer of my tool box at work.

My fork bag doesn't interfere with anything. I'll post a pic later if I remember.

I supplied the picture. The air horn is under the air intake (ear) on the left side.
