I found a good secure place to keep my garage door remote. I had to cut out part of one rib on the back side of the fuel door and then Velcro the remote in place. Of course it does require me to shut off the engine and open the fuel door to open the garage.





But the remote is secure and out of the weather.

You could use the spare key or have a spare key made.

Some people cut off the end of the key and make a key-knob.

One example: http://www.goldwingfacts.com/1800keyknobs.htm
I may do that for the fuel door lock. I've already done it for the ignition switch and it turned out good. I'll post a pic of that later. It looks like I can cut the key shorter and it will work on the fuel lock and not work in the ignition. That way if I leave it in the fuel door lock, it can be used to steal the bike.

Or.... be a little more creative. :)
On most of my bikes, I've rigged up a little system. I buy a momentary switch (shape depends on where I'm mounting it) from Radio Shack or the like and run the wires to garage door opener. Open it up and figure out which are the power leads in there (a multimeter will do the trick), solder the wires from the momentary, and voila. Then I hide the opener somewhere out of the way. I just picked up my F6C, so I haven't done it yet - but when I do, I'll likely just get a small round momentary switch and drill a small hole in the same panel as the fuel cover release; makes for an easier run of wires, too. I hit the button a few hundred feet from the house, and the garage door is open by the time I get to it; the long wire makes for a nice antenna, too.
