This might sound like a silly question, but for those of you who has a garage door, where do you keep your garage remote? I use to tie a rubber band at the end of the remote and hang it on the left handle bar for easy access. But I lost it today, don't know if the rubber band snapped off or I just lost the whole thing.

My doesn't have a visor clip.
It is the smaller style, like a car alarm remote.
I just need a new idea for easy access and not end up loosing it.
My textile jacket is pretty thick so if I put it in my pocket, I don't think i
can find it again from the outside of the jacket.(plus I don't feel like poking myself 2 times a day trying to open the door)

I put mine (small remote type) on the key ring along with the Burgy Key and never have a problem.

Mine is upside down, mounted to the top of the inside right glovebox with doublesided tape.

Our of the way and inconspicous...

Mine is mounted in the left hand storage box (650) velcroed to the bottom. As I approach the garage I just flip open the storage box cove and hit the button with my left hand, allowing my right to still modulate the throttle and front brake. It is the small type and can easily be removed if I need it for another vehicle in the winter.

I don't have a garage door opener anymore (kinda redundant since I don't have a garage anymore), but my old opener came with a wired remote that went "in-line" with the "flash to pass" switch. A quick double tap on the switch and the door would open.

I had a friend convinced that there was an optical sensor on my house that picked up the flash, and he just about went crazy looking for it. :twisted:

Cool idea, I'll keep that in mind, now just got to wait
for my new remote to come in.
Thanks. :wav:

Mine's currently like Warrens, velcro'ed up to the roof of the locking glove box (on the right). On the 650 there is a large recess in the roof of it that hides 2 of them nicely. I recently bought a Homelink scavenged from a wrecked Ford Expedition. I'm going to mount it inside one of the non-locking glove boxes to where the unit is behind the glove box wall - and only the buttons are accessible. My last 2 motorcycles I mounted a regular remote up under the fairing to where I could reach the buttons - but you couldn't see it (or remove it). If you're ambitious - then you could pick any button on the handgrip and wire it into a homelink or something similar. I had a friend that wired a garage remote into his left turn signal wire... I don't know what kind of remote he had, but it looked like a regular handheld... I think the manual downshift button on the 650 would be my choice.
