First off I washed my bike and blow dried it with a leaf blower.Took it out for a ride and when I turned on the radio it was cutting out (radio) I tried IPod and it was cutting out too.I must have gotten something wet.It doesnt do it when sitting or under 45 mph only over.tried it stopped and revving it to the rpm (2500) to see if it was rpm related and it wasnt.So it must be speed related.
Has anyone else had this happen and what does it take to line it out?
Will it dry out on its own and work or do I need to do something?

Firstly Victory's don't like being washed, spray on wipe off detail spray is the go.
If you persist in washing youll end up with more problems.

When I wet wash my bike I've gotten into the habit of wrapping the radio and cruise control switch pods in plastic wrap, I have not had the after wash issues since. Vics are notorious for the kind of problem you had when the pods get soaked.

Hard to imagine switches that the manufacture knows will be exposed to weather are known to stop working when you wash the bike. I will have to remember the plastic bag thing when I wash with water.

Could be the Chinese electrics,
I always had Ratbikes so washing a bike is completely alien to me.
My bikes built to be ridden not pampered.
It gets a quick 5 Min wipe over with detail spray and microfibre cloth before I leave the shed.
Sometimes...
