A second hand-held air horn is also a good accessory. It can be more directional than your fixed horns, and also act as a good backup.

No, you put "$200 OBO" on it and leave it by the road, someone will steal it in short order, or they'll try to "talk you down" to $100. Free stuff is worthless, but a $200 thing? That has value!
