How long does sat radio last for ?

On new bikes how long did your satilite radio last for before you have to subscribe?

Wish I had some back-lit LED lights on my control handle

it is one year and then they will send you offer after offer for an additional 3 month for free if you will let them have your credit card number and charge a minor "$2 administrative fee".
My advise is DO NOT EVER LET THEM HAVE YOUR CREDIT CARD NUMBER!!!!
You will have to cancel the card to get them to stop charging you for things!!!
I love Xm radio but I always let them charge me $2 for a paper bill I can pay without giving them my credit card number!!!!
If you will wait another week or 2, you will get offers for $4.99/mo for up to 12 months!!!
Just my $.02!!!

I gave up Sirius/XM due to their billing games and schemes.

Yes.....and yes ! No CC to XM. They will kill you before they will stop the contract. I enjoy it while it is going. After that, Amazon Prime Music, perfect for me. I got a bluetooth transmitter form Amazon, smaller than the fob key we have. Always plugged in the side case and always mate with the phone so I can listen to my music via the bike's speakers in town riding. Works perfect for me.

Yes, would like more info on how you are doing this. Are you downloading and then playing back or are you streaming?

Mpow Bluetooth 4.1 Receiver and Transmitter, 2-in-1 Wireless 3.5mm Audio Adapter, Pairing with 2 Bluetooth Headphones At Once In TX Mode, Built-in Mic for Hands-free Calling in RX Mode......Amazon has tons of those. Simple.....I plug it in via a short 3.5mm cord from the above to the rear of the bike. I also keep micro USB shorty plugged/charging full time as well. I keep the on/off switch on, on the transmitter. Even if the transmitter goes dry after few days, once you start the bike, it starts charging and the phone will pair no issue. When you first get it, you need to pair one time and you are done every time it is on with your phone. Please note in the photo on Amazon that the 3.5mm aluminum plug can come out off the transmitter. Most of these toys last many days with no charge needed. The charge is quick. So, the music is transfered via bluetooth from the phone through the AUX function on the bike. You need to choose AUX via the button on the left side panel on the bike and you are set. Any unit you buy work the same way. No need to worry about the MIC. I use it for music only. The minus is, when you get a call, You will not be able to use the phone unless you cancel the transmitter. The above is sitting inside the plastic pocket and I never see or touch it.
