You da MAN! lol

I have heard of people adapting their horn switch to an opener for a totally stealth look.

By the way, keep in mind, if you park the bike outside. Since the opener isn't locked
in a car, ANYONE can walk up and get access to your house. Something to keep in mind.

I just wish I had a garage door opener on my house. ;-)

Sweet! I was sick of shutting off the bike and running into the house too so I bought a key chain garage remote (literally a few hours ago) and had the same thought of mounting it on the bike. Only problem is I have a habit of forgetting to close the garage after I go in the house

Great idea....I have a key chain garage opener. So it's link with my keys....but that's still good idea. What happens when you need to replace the battery? Do you just take the air ram off?
