    I know VERY little about XM radio, but is Channel 21 a "Subscription" Channel
    and you don't get the others unless your subscription is actiive ?

    Make sure your subscription is up to date.  It's been my experience that when you let your subscription lapse, XM starts removing some of the more popular channels first prior to removing access to the rest.  You don't typically lose them all at once.  At that point, if you want to keep the service, that's when you tell 'em that, as much as you like the service, it's too expensive.  Since they can't afford to lose subscribers you can usually count on a decent discount.

    You most likey need to send a refresh signal to the radio.  Park the bike outside with the key on and the radio set to XM.  Log into your SiriusXM account and find the Trophy's radio listed in the accounts.  There is a 'Send Refresh Signal' or similar.  Select that and wait about 5 minutes for your radio to get the signal.

    Wow, you guys have to pay out every year to listen to the radio, I never knew that.
    I know that many years ago us Brits had to pay for a yearly radio licence, thankfully they scrapped that, we still have one for the TV though.

    XM radio is quite  a bit different from other radio. No advertisements, can select the year range  and types of music you want to listen to, such as "60's rock, 70's rock" etc., or even Elvis only and that type of thing. Besides the fact that it works out in the middle of nowhere.

    Satellites are expensive to put up, somebody has to pay for it all.

    BTW, we can still listen to FM/AM radio for free just as you can. The XM subscription is voluntary.

    Yep, the honeymoon is over.  The first 3 months you get all the premium channels, after that you have to upgrade your service for another $5 a month or you drop down to the next level of programming.  I'm not ready to fork over any more money for satellite radio that I hardly use.  I tried telling them its too expensive and they said wait until a promotion comes around.  Arg!

    Donk,
    I get 6 months for $ 29.00.
    that is the special deal.  you just have to tell them that is all you will pay.  Then a couple of days before it expires call them up and tell them you want to cancel and start the dance again.

    I do like it, particularly on long trips and as mentioned in the middle of nowhere.  I recently did about 5900 miles in 19 days and just listened to XM and my Ipod.

    Good luck.
