Question When using Reverse, the Radio is muted

I just read this and never experienced the situation.

But, the radio/CB/Intercom/Music is the last damn thing I want to be bothered with when I fire up my bike, and back it out of the garage.

This was a comment on the 1800s, do the 1500s work the same way?

That's the starter button function. It also douses the headlights and preserves current available to crank and start the bike. The headlights don't bother me but the radio and aux power is an inconvenience as it resets me BT Freewire and I have to take activate the connection. I suppose it does allow you to audibly hear the reverse engage and function, that could be a good thing.

It is so you can hear well enough to keep from backing out into traffic AFAIK. Yes 1500s also.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.
