    Just a word to the wise
    Be sure to change your fob batteries once a year as HD recommends. Went to start the bike the other day, dead as a doorknob, turn signals flashing bike no recognizing the fob, Grabbed the other fob, same thing. Put in new batteries, problem solved, fired right up.
    This could have happened on the road. Unless you know how to disarm the fob (many steps) you'll be stuck.

    Thanks for the info.
    We're going to Canada for the weekend and probably wouldn't have a problem until I read this.
    Will get new batteries today, got the registration renewal in the mail so I will start to do both at the same time.
    I do have a pin and do use it now and then because I have lost my keys while riding. Didn't get them deep enough in the pocket. Now they always go into the pouch of the tour pack.

    As I do as well, it is a lot of steps, when I tried it for practice I messed up several times before I got it right.

    Just put a yearly reminder on your phone and you are good to go..... Or if you are old school write it on your calendar.
