The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) is pleased to announce a new member benefit — Flash2Pass — that directly targets one of the few inconveniences of riding your motorcycle: fumbling for your garage door remote when you pull into the driveway.Flash2Pass turns your existing headlight high beam switch into a transmitter for your automatic garage door opener. AMA members can now purchase Flash2Pass products for 10 percent less than the manufacturer’s suggested retail price."This is one of those simple products that once you use it, you’re hooked," said AMA Director of Business Development Jim Moore. "It eliminates the need to dig through a tankbag or to hang a clunky garage door opener off your handlebars. You just flash your lights and pull in."
Flash2Pass works with virtually any vehicle equipped with a 12-volt system, including both motorcycles and automobiles. It works with most automatic garage door openers manufactured since 1982. It’s weatherproof, and a single receiver accepts up to six transmitters. It comes with do-it-yourself instructions, and can be installed in less than 15 minutes with standard household tools."Many AMA members understand that a motorcycle is more than just a recreational vehicle, it’s something to be used everyday, whether that’s commuting to work or running local errands," said F2P Technologies President Chris de Janasz. "We designed this system to help make riding your bike that much better than driving your car, and we’re thrilled to offer these savings to AMA members, many of whom can no doubt appreciate the daily convenience Flash2Pass offers."Find out more about Flash2Pass at F2PTechnologies.com.
