Im with you. Key only. HD...don't even need the key to stay in ignition. I like that feature. I could do without the bling

Default garage door opener

Garage door openers are such handy appliances, Unfortunately, even the most faithful garage door opener eventually stops working. Since the track is already in place, it's not hard to replace the old garage door opener with a new one.

I have one of these on the chest pocket of my riding jacket.
(There is a garage-door opener behind it, lined up so I press the pin and the pin presses the opener button. The only downside is that sometimes it triggers the door when I'm donning or doffing the jacket.)

The other day when I got to work there was a message on my phone. It was my across-the-street neighbor. She wanted to know if I knew that my garage door was open. Apparently I bumped my opener switch in my chest pocket on my coat before I got out of range - possibly before I even got down the driveway. I never heard it because of the powerful engine - or my ear plugs...

I called her back and she went over and closed it for me. It's still a good neighborhood. She is a nosy old lady that stinks like Marlboro's, but I'll miss her when she's gone.
I her tell that her mom is still alive though, something beyond 100! She could outlive me!

I have used an inexpensive cell phone case to clip onto the last two bikes I have had and it seems to work fine. It is easy to remove when washing the bike and in the winter I clip it to my jacket when using the snow blower. Hopefully I have attached a few pics that show it. I replaced the plastic clip with the one from the opener, much stronger.

I bought a tiny keychain opener compatible with my Genie garage door, put heavy duty velcro on the back of it, and affixed it to the inside of one of the fairings. When I get back to my house, I just stick a finger in there and hit the button. Best part is nobody would notice it unless they were really looking around carefully.

I have a Chamberlain garage door system. I bought
this key ring opener this key ring opener
, works like a charm. Be sure to confirm which models are compatible with your garage door though. You could just check the model of your current remote and check if that one is compatible with it.

I thought about a mount on my bike somewhere, but then I got paranoid if my bike ever got stolen, now that person has access to my house.

I just use a universal keychain garage door opener and keep it in my jacket. I picked mine offa Amazon for about $9 shipped.
