should the horn work even if it's not bolted down?

Head to southwest Colorado.  The area around Durango, 
Silverton, Telluride is awesome.  Depending on where you 
come from there is great riding to get there and back.  
Most places are motorcycle friendly so you won't have any 
issues.  Feel free to e-mail me offline.

Weatherwise, you can get anywhere from cool sunny days to 
winter blizzards after Labor day.  I once crashed in a 
blizzard on Monarch pass the weekend after Labor Day and 
rode back over Wolf Creek Pass in the same.  Also have 
ridden in perfect weather that same time frame.  I'm hoping 
to do a weekend on my WR450 on the high passes after Labor 
day weather permitting so I'm counting on some good weather 

BTW, I am planning on hosting another Durango Fandango next 
summer for those who might be interested.  Probably same 
time late June to early July.  However, the Scappaticci 
hotel is now under new ownership, LOL!!
