XM radio is a great addition. Antenna in the Fairing gives clear signal in Connecticut. Highly recommend!

Really nice addition to the bike. Now can ride any ware and not have to worry about finding a radio station. Listen to the music I want to all the time.

I have a problem with trees here in the South. a tree lined street will cause the satellite radio to lose signal. I believe it has to do with the position of the satellites and is not a problem with the unit itself. When there is signal, it delivers good performance. It is light years ahead of listening to the radio. I won't buy a bike without it.

I had this installed at purchase when I bought my 2012 FLHTK. When I bought this bike, adding satellite radio was a no-brainer. I have been a satellite radio customer for several years. All my vehicles have it. I very much value being able to maintain the same station/s wherever I go. I also appreciate the relative lack of commercial interruptions.
I recommend the BOOM! kit over an aftermarket add-on because of the clean install (everything is inside the fairing) and for integrating with the OEM HK radio controls.
Reception is very good. The only time it is interrupted is when I spend excessive time below an overpass during heavy rush hour traffic. It restores as soon as overhead is clear.
My only negative comment might be regarding selection of preset stations. To pick one I must press one of the buttons on the front of the radio. I would prefer to use the handlebar controls to do that. Note that this is possible on 2014 and newer models with the new Infotainment system and handlebar controls.
I recommend HD include this as a standard item on touring EG Ultras and Limiteds, RG Specials, and of course EG/RG CVOs. Include one year free service like car dealers do.
