I'm just going off what a number of mechanics have said to me... I've been given looks like I'm crazy expecting more than three years out of a bike battery!|
As for prices, that's been my experience. Last two batteries I bought for bikes cost me 30-40 quid. Just had to get a new car battery, cost me 90.

I do wonder how good those lightweight lithium batteries that are on the new V4 Ducati.

Don't lithium batteries explode on piercing damage? Next to a petrol tank? That's fun
Two to three years for a battery is normal.
Wish my friend would ride with his rear camera mount more often.

I ride to work on bike, it's really cool and easy for me. The hectic traffic jam doesn't get me and that's just the best part of it.
MOD2 passed! All I need now is some nice weathe... bugger.
And fuck the weather. I go out in everything apart from ice. Just get some good gear and it doesn't matter.
Hell, Saturday I went on a 100 mile ride just to stretch the bike a bit in the pouring rain. Good waterproofs, heated gloves and layers and I never felt the cold or got wet at all.
Don't mind the wet one bit but it's been gusting 60-70mph up in Scotland. My arse hole can only take so much puckering.
Ah yeah. Sorry two things make me not ride. Ice and wind. And of the two I am actually more scared of wind.
Found myself looking at S1000RRs at work earlier and was pleasantly surprised at the low end of used prices. Anyone ever rode or owned one? Think I might swap out my ageing 600 Gixxer for one next year.
Finally made it out on Sunday. Loving it.

Mindy rides a motorcycle.
Thinking to upgrade my bike, went to dealers today. "Can I test drive that bike?"
"No, we don't let people test ride as it gets the bikes dirty and adds to mileage"
How the fuck do they ever expect anyone to want to buy one of their bikes then?

I thought that's why they have demo models… for that very purpose. Small dealership?
Demo model is good for a new bike.
6 year old bike? I want to hear how it purrs, see how those none standard brakes feel, see how loud the aftermarket exhaust is etc. Now way I am paying out £5,000 without even trying it out.
