I like the idea, but I'm not sure I like the way it's set up. It sounds like triggering the motion sensor starts the bike if your keyfob is nearby. I think I'd rather wire it into the starter button, so you still need to push it for the bike to actually start. Otherwise the bike would try to start if you just needed to push it to the other side of the garage or something and had the key in your pocket.
If you wired it into the starter button, then getting close to the bike with the key would be the equivalent of turning the key on. You could just walk up to bike, hop on, and hit the starter button to fire it up. It just seems a little unsafe to have it trying to start with so little input.
It should be fairly easily to replace just the ignition keyswitch with any sort of wirelessly-activated switch. Heck, you could even hook it up with a Bluetooth system paired to your phone and use that as the keyfob. That would have a side effect of keeping you from forgetting your phone too. =)
