I ran a portable XM receiver on my ST1300, my 650 VStrom (my first one) and my Nomad. I also had a J&M CB mounted, that I plugged into the receiver. Worked well, and I didn't have any problems changing channels, even with my gloves on. Unfortunately there is no XM/Sirius reception up here, so I just use my MP3 player.
