Buy either a battery tender that comes with a special jumper that is always connected to the battery and it can be charged with the battery in the bike. Or make/purchase a jumper to hookup to your trickle chrger;then that will never happen again. I just stuff the jumper into the right side "handle hole" in the side cover.

Make sure you tape up the battery connections. If the positive lead shorts to the frame or the - lead you will most likely blow the regulator.

I did the same except I extended the connector up behind the headlight so when you don't have the charger plugged into you can connect a GPS (or any other 12V accessory) to it if you like.

Put the seat on the work bench next to the battery. You will probably never load your motorcycle in the truck without a seat

Yes I did the same thing only I don't have a "handle hole" on the left;so my plug exits on the right side.

That is a good idea also. I like leaving whatever I need to take with me in front of the door so I trip over it on the way out---that way it dosen't get forgotten.
