Commuting to and from work on a motorcycle is a great. It saves time and money, and it really does make the workday that much more enjoyable. One thing about coming home from the grind is the fact that if the bike is parked in the garage the rider has to usually dig through his/her backpack, saddlebag, or fairing nook/cranny, looking for the remote in order to open said garage whenever he/she gets home. It might not be that big of a nuisance but in the never-ending quest to save time, seconds are precious.
This is where Flash2Pass Technologies ($79.95) comes into play. This system works just like a garage door opening remote control, only its transmitter is tapped into the headlight wiring (varies depending on year/make/model), and its receiver either replaces the pre-existing wall-mounted receiver, or can be piggybacked to the garage door opening unit itself (on the ceiling). Once installed, with two flashes of the high beams…it’s open sesame.
