Default Another dumb question, one of many

I just bought the 2014 Vision Tour. How do I know if I have or don't have the XM radio ?

Being a brand new owner, bear with me for a few. Been on Triumphs for all of my adult life except for a Norton once.

put your radio on auxiliary and see if you have sound.
Dough you do but for a lot of money you can find one on ebay

We took Black Betty for a run down 176 into South Carolina, fueled up and rode into Chesnee for early dinner at the Bantam Chef reetsurant then back up and onto Highway 9 around Lake Lure and then back home.

I noticed that in 90 + temps that seat gets hot. Put my Air Hawk on it this morning to see if that helps. I also have the Alaska Leather sheepskin. only other option would be the beaded seat cushion.

Mileage ?????? What kind of mileage do you guys get? Note, I am still in the first 500 miles so I know the mileage will change as I ride it.

I would almost swear that my 2294 cc Rocket III got better mileage. Too early too tell.

Depending on throttle twist, you should get between 38 - 44 MPG. I average right at 40 MPG. Did you buy the bike for mileage or pleasure?

ATGATT because walking away in disgust is better than riding away in an ambulance.

Never get to busy making a living that you forget to make a life.

If you want the factory XM unit, it is pricey and you need an additional $70 cable as well but it works great. I also have the ipod connector and extension cable so I could put the ipod in the saddlebag instead of the glove compartment. If you get the ipod connector, it integrates with the radio display and you can select songs or playlists as well as control volume.

You can find go deals on ipods on craigslist.

For mileage use your phone to do the math. The gauge gives you estimate. When you fill up after pump shuts off keep going you can get a half gallon more in. Wiggle the bars to get the air out of the two tanks quicker.
When you get to around 2500 miles you should be around 40 + miles to the gallon.
Yup your ass does get hot its a shame cause the bike is so great. I use fur to keep comfie.
There is a good victory vision forum on the net with some smart vision guys
Buy a good tire gauge and check your tires the first of every month and when it gets over 95 degrees check every two weeks. You'll find a loss of 3 to 4 pounds not much but it shortens your tire life.
Double check what your dealer does to the bike till you trust them
