My '03 came with the BMW gel battery and it gave me plenty of warning before it failed.
I normally leave the charger hooked up when parked and I make sure that the handlebars are locked.
I first noticed that the engine seemed to be turning over more slowly than usual but wrote it off to my imagination. Then my radio would not come back on after the engine had started. I could see the display backlight but there was no sound or control of the radio. I had to disconnect the battery for 30 minutes or so to reset the radio and then everything worked normally. This went on for several weeks before I replaced the battery. YMMV
