    Default Bike mounted Garage door opener

    Is there a bike mounted Garage door opener available for the Spyder RT. The one that I had installed on my Harley was connected to the high/low beam headlight switch. Changing tge position of the switch would initiate the garage door opener to raise or lower the door.

    I look forward to your responses.

    I velcroed mine to under the dash, just behind the pull down safety card. Works great just tap the button and go. Do not even notice it there.

    Mine is still where I left it; mounted in a cut-out, in the glove box's foam liner...

    try this one; if you've got dip switches this should work.

    I purchased a keychain size remote and velcroed it to the inside wall of my glove box. I just open the lid and press the button as I'm approaching my house. I don't even have to remove the device from the velcro. Much cheaper than the ones you install on the bike. I still have plenty of room in the glove box for odds and ends.

    The only problem that I see with having to open up the glovebox:
    Make dang sure that you don't have to turn your bars!

    Of course I do close the lid prior to turning into my driveway, but ..............

    FYI, turning the handlebars closes the glovebox lid

    I did what Pam did. Works great and is not expensive.

    The remote transmits and activates the opener from a great distance. By the time I turn into the driveway, the door is halfway open. Not much chance of my hand still being in there.

    Velcro mine to the glove box wall in the front works well..I am usually driving straight when pressing the button to open the garage door and never had a problem..
