Any creative uses for the center stand switch?

Since the trikes obviously don't have a power center stand anymore for those of you with 2005+ bikes have you come up with any use for the switch?

Since the horn scares the heck out of people (Not that I'm complaining) I was thinking of adding a wimpy horn (like a Harley Davidson horn! Or maybe a scooter horn ) so I can give a friendly toot to others with out scaring them.

About the horn scaring people.

I worked for UPS several years. As part of their training, They insisted that the driver wave in a friendly manner at anyone you were honking at. This action softened the intent of the horn, but brought reasonable compliance. I have tried this in my car and on the bike. It works well.

Just a thought,

Richard
