You might think a banshee is just some scary poltergeist, but Irish and Scottish legend said they were female spirits that warned of imminent danger. That’s the inspiration behind the Screaming Banshee ($100), a new way to ‘roid out your motorcycle’s stock horn.

Instead of just having a Road Runner-esque “beep” to warn unaware cars or pedestrians, the Screaming Banshee amps your horn up to 139 decibels and turns your high beam into a strobe. And because that delicate horn might still be useful, the Banshee only activates if the user holds down the horn button for over 1/4 of a second, plenty enough for a friendly reminder.
