Haven't heard of it but it's a cool idea...... I just use a tiny remote that fits in my pocket.

I guess if you've got $129 just laying around it's cool.

I just use my opener in my jacket pocket. I can even push the button without taking it out! For free!!

I clipped mine to the fairing support. No one ever notices it. If they check out your bike they aren't looking at black metal bars that, to them, don't do anything.

Forgive & forget. Just never forget when I forgive.

I made one...Bought a programmable garage door opener from Radio Shack for $20. Then bought a little push-button for about $1.50. Just opened the controller, soldered two wires to the button on the controller, and put the button at the other end. (add the new button in parallel to the old button) Then I sealed up the controller with silicone sealant to keep it waterproof. The controller was mounted up under the little triangular black fairing piece on the right side, and the button went under the starter switch on the right clipon. It's worked perfect since I got the bike, in all kinds of weather...and I don't even have to take my hands off the bars to open the doors. If you didn't know it was there, you would never notice it..

Check the attachment for a pic..it's kinda big though..You can see the button there, and the small white wire that goes down the top of the fork..
