The Motor Company Wants $140 For This

Harley wants $140 for this hi/low beam remote garage door opener...that won't work with my Daymakers


So being that my truck is programmed to open my garage door, I opened up my Craftsman opener and soldered a $13 Harley momentary switch to the mother board. It's the same switch that's used to change functions on the odometer


A simple 3/8" hole between the speedo and tach and presto, a $13 remote garage door opener! Yeah I know, I didn't get the hole centered, trust me, that's not like me, damnit.

Overtime pays more because of what you're missing, money isn't everything.

you have got me thinking, for $159 you can buy a whole entire new 1/2 hp drive unit with wireless keypad, two remotes and command center

thats what i did on my old bike, but i just can't bring myself to drill a hole in this cvo color matched housing.....

so for now, i have to do it the hard way and actually get off the bike to shut or open the garage door... oh the humanity!!!!

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.
