4,000 Mile Trip
4,000 Mile Tour - Wife and I just returned from a cross country tour. We do one every year on our motorcycle. This is the first year on the SVTC. We rode i temps fron 46 to 97, in rain and sun and up and down mountains. The SVTC was two up and pulling a loaded trailer. It ran perfect.The only issue I had was going into Wisconsin. we rode in a heavy rain for about 50 miles, the display screen showed an error "CAN - Communication Error". I clicked OK and a few seconds later the screen digitized and then rebooted. Never did it again and the motorcycle ran perfect . We ran on lots of highways, interstates and backroads all at about 5 MPH over posted limits. I'm happy with 34.5 MPG.
I got some "cant detect the key fob" errors so I replaced the battery in the FOB, the bike did not recognize the FOB after that. I started to try and reprogram the bike/FOB but tried something first. I replaced the new battery with the other new battery and everything worked, changed them back and nothing. It looks like one of the new batteries was bad out of the package. No more key errors rest of trip.
