How long are you able to leave your GT or GTL before the battery is dead. Mine seems to be DOA in about 6 weeks. Is that normal? When I had my LT, I could leave it for 3 or 4 months without the battery going dead. I am now charging my bike with a pigtail set up directly to the battery so I shouldn't have this problem again. Before I was charging directly into the accessory socket (which doesn't work), and I was surprised that the battery drained so quickly. When I asked the BMW tech about it, he said that the GT/GTL typically had a much higher rate of battery drain then the LT or for that matter any other model of BMW bike. Are any of you experiencing this, or do I have an electrical problem somewhere.

I normally ride every day, but when I'm going to be away for more than a week, I'll hook it up to the tender. I charge up my helmet once a week.
