Power drain by other gadgets...
Pozo - Having power switched at the accessory position doesn't really effect most of my farkels. The only power drain I will have is my volt meter (digital LED) and power adaptor for my Ipod (1 small LED). The power requirements for these are minimal and I can leave my bike in accessory mode for several days without any negative consequences.
The rest of my farkels, Valentine, CB radio, GPS, etc. are all controlled separately through the power supply from the BMW ComSystem.
So when I do leave my bike completely off for a week or more (rarely) I can turn it to accessory mode and see the available voltage before I try to start it.
