USA Trophy riders - XM radio 3 month free trial
« on: May 02, 2013, 05:05:45 AM »
Did you know your Trophy comes with a 3 month free trial of XM radio.  When I got the bike I asked about it. I was told no it didn't.  Well today I got a notice from XM radio telling me my 3 month trial was about to expire.  They had my radio ID number, name address etc.  I went back to the dealer and asked if they could "reset" my trail.  They hadn't a clue, said Triumph must of done it when they reported the bike as sold.  So don't miss out on your free 3 month trial, call XM to activate it, you must be outside with the bike when you do.

I got an emial from XM about it and called and activated.  What does not make sense is how your free trial could expire without you activating it.  I guess the dealer gave them the radio ID number (looks like XM had it when you called) and got you activiated without you ever knowing.  If you like XM get on them about it.  I'll bet they will extend your trial to try and get you as a permanant customer.

I, too, was told there was no free trial.  I will have to call Sirius/XM

I have XM on my present bike, using the puck attached to my Zumo550.  I wonder if I can just extend my renewal date.   Oh well, that's a problem to handle on their website.

I was able to tack my three month trial onto my existing subscription and transfer it over to the new XM unit.  Still trying to get it activated.  I spent a good part of my ride today flicking between channel 01 and channel 00 waiting for it to sync with the activation signal.

Called today and activated XM. Piece of cake.  Done in 17 minutes including time to pick up signal and listen to renewal sales pitch  Evidently. Lot of dealers don't know the trial period is included and are not notifying Siius/XM

My favorite is channel 32, The Bridge. My era folk rock except on Sunday mornings when they get too obscure for me.
