Yeah, I got one for the bike, but didn't even think about putting the bike on it when I left... I'll be doing that from now on.

You should plug it in everyday, not just when you leave for awhile. It conditions or massages the battery while its charged. Anyboby need one? I can get them for $25.00 plus shipping.:broke:

:stupid:

Everytime I pull into my garage the first thing I do is plug in the tender. I even have one on my lawn tractor out in the shed. :)

How important is this, I have had my bike since February 2006 and it has never been on a tender? I have the tender and the quick connects but they are still in their boxes.

+1 since jan 06. i think if you live in year-round warm weather and you ride your bike pretty much every day you can get away without using one.

It will lengthen the life of the battery and you'll never have to worry about it going dead if you don't ride for awhile.

Just my luck... The bike is almost charged enough to ride and now it just started raining....

Decisions, Decisions........ Wait for the rain to stop and hopefully be able to ride in an hour or two.............or have a beer....

I use one of the solar battery chargers on my CBR1000RR since I don't ride it as often. I bought a few on ebay and will install one on my Street Rod as well. They work great and don't add to electric bill.
