That there's a big no shitter! I've never hit the horn and had it change anybodies mind that I recall, I've always wound up taking evasive action, I rarely bother with the horn any more.
I also have zero issues with the turn signal operation on the BMW and I have a Yamaha I ride as well, I think that I actually prefer the BMW combination switches.
If you are having to look down to see what button(s) to push than you need to spend more time getting familiar with your bike, operating turn signals should be intuitive and if you can't get there than you need to make whatever adjustments necessary so you can.
