garage door opener?

Soo I have lost several garage door openers , simply because I forgot to zip jacket or forgot to zip backpack. My question is do any of yall have any tips or tricks on mounting it somewhere on your bike. I realize this is probably only a issue with me but dam 30 bucks a pop getting a lil expensive lol.

I use the tiny Craftsman key fob remotes. As long as you don't loose your keys you are good.
Can't find the ones I have, but this is similar

I use the Flash 2 Pass system on both my bikes. They work great, and are universal for any bike. Taps into your highbeam circuit. Two quick flashes and your garage door is open!

Mounted a push button to my handle bars and soldered it to the garage door opener. The garage door opener is under my seat.

Velcro

I have a little compartment for mine on the Ducati, but with my old bike, I went the cheap way- industrial-strength outdoor velcro. One piece on the gate opener, one piece just below the gauges, protected from the wind. That way I could take it off and use it for the car, as well. You can get it at Home Depot or Lowe's. I'm a firm believer in the stuff- it's held my XM antenna to the hood of my car for about 6 months now; I've never had any come loose.

+1 on the key fob. If you have more than 1 bike, mounting something on the bike is not exactly cost effective. Not to mention the security concerns.

I've lost a key fob once. Key fob itself I could care less. I can reprogram the garage door openers in 5mins and erase all remotes. The keys I had hanging with the fob worry me much worse. It was a lot more hassle to rekey my whole house.

I use the a little key chain remote like pictured above and leave it in my jacket. I remember reading a post where a guy wired into his lap button on the ZX10r. Cant remember if it was on here are on ZX10r.net but I thought that was pretty cool.

dboi, I dont know if the R1 has any other buttons on the bike that you could use. You run the remote in parallel with another button on the bike.

Only concern I have about running or leaving a remote on the bike if it gets stolen. You would have to remember to reprogram the garage door opener (once stolen) just in case they decided to rob your house once they found the remote on the bike.

Again, read my post #7. No need to Velcro a key fob or a remote to your bike. Get the Flash 2 Pass kit. A transmitter is mounted inside your bike; about 2" square x 1/2" thick. It taps into your highbeam circuit. You then mount the receiver on your garage wall; it splices into your existing button pad. That's it! After programming, it's all set. You pull up, don't have to get off the bike or fumble with a key fob or remote, you just give two quick flashes of your highbeam and the garage door opens! Absolutely no reason to use any other method, and there's no theft risk as there might be by leaving a remote velcro'd to your bike. Oh, and multiple transmitters can operate a single receiver, for those with more than one bike. Check it out!

Yeah, the flash2pass is really nice. Not sure I'll bother to buy one for each bike.... and there are others with more bikes than me, and buy/sell/rotate through them more than me.

Install is REALLY easy, both on the bike and the door opening. I left all the wiring as-is on the actual opener and just piggy backed the button straight to the wires on the side of the opener (and plugged it in to the same socket as the opener).

i had a little keychain remote on my key but the range on it was trash. so i went with a pretty cheap and slightly ghetto method.

got a regular universal remote, some doubled sided tape and put that on the left side of the windscreen. no problems whatsoever
