    Does any of you guys know of a small water proof remote control which I can programme for the garage door and just fit to the front handle bars of the bike or tank.:ear

    Don't know if any of these are weatherproof, but here are a few ... (do a search on "garage")

    This is the one from Rider Warehouse that I use (~$20), [​IMG], you can also find it at SEARS. I used to tether it and then Velcro it inside the right hand guard but the cover came off while riding RR tracks… It now has a duct tape cover and I tether and clip to my riding jacket or chaps. There are versions out there for connecting to your headlight switch too….

    Yep, it's pretty much universal - gots instructions in ingles and you just change the covers on the little pins to program it. Even a KIWI could do it, (and possibly an OZZIE, with help) :rofl:1drink

    garage door opener may be available from BROOKSTONE.

    I do not have an internet address and have not been in the local Brookstone store to know if they have one. I can try and check them out locally if you wish - sometime this weekend.

    I got this information from another post someplace around here.
    Cost was estimated to be around $30.00 or so and the unit was reported to be about 2 inches long.

    Hope this info is helpful.
