VIDEO & BLOG-Harley Davidson and Harman Kardon have released Boom!™ Box software update version 1.18.2. Bikaholics everywhere are wondering if they should update after the debacle of the release of 1.18.1 a month or so ago. Harley put out 1.18.1 and many downloaded the updated only to find that it broke more things than it fixed!
