    Here's their site intro:

    "The smallest independent garage door remotes available for Motorcycles. Because our product is a standalone unit there is no hard wiring to the motorcycle and installation is done in less than 10 minutes! No more getting off your bike or fumbling with bulky devices that were created for your car. Simply just pull in!"

    $80 - Small Wallet sized unit with Military spec switch. Paired it up to my garage opener, installed the unit under the seat, Adhered the switch in super stealth locale behind a frame rail. Total install time - About a 1/2 a beer.:1drink Range is about 100ft (max). Runs on standard 2032 battery, claims 5 year +/- operation before battery needs replacement. Had it for a month, works great. I'll update as to battery life in a few years.

    Just what I need. I'm out rain riding doing product tests all the time. The only part I don't like is taking the gloves off to open the door.

    I'll let you know who it works-but not now. There's 25" of snow right now.

    So they take a 15$ garage door opener, a piece of wire and a button...relocate the button outside and then call it a "motorcycle stealth garage door opener" and ask 80$ for it?

    Brilliant! :lol3

    Why the heck not? I bet they sell a ton of em :)

    It solves a problem that people with disposable income would rather have solved for them... not really much different than "flash2pass"

    I just put mine in my jacket pocket and I can press the opener through the jacket with my gloves on.

    Flash to pass or whatever it is needs to be spliced in. I'll never do that. Seen too many splices fail. Yes, I'm well aware that nobody else EVER had a splice fail and all that. Good enough. Many years as a pro SCUBA diver have proven to me another way. As for the lift-master somehow I've lost two of them. Gonna try another way.

    A solder iron, a pair of cutter and 10 minutes of job and it's done.

    What the hell splicing a wire or two on a bike and scuba diving have in common?!

    I just took one of the handheld remotes, wired a Radio Shack switch to the contacts, mounted the unit with velcro, and put the button here (the button by the key):

    Fairly cheap.

    All good stuff. "Disposable" income is relative.

    I like the Skylink universal remotes because they run on 12V. Solder wires to the battery contacts and hook that up to switched power. Solder wires to the button contacts and hook those up to an OEM dash switch. Then cover it with RTV to waterproof it and mount it hidden in the fairing.
