Since when has modern technology dictated that I need a tender to maintain reliability?
Of course on the other side of the coin, I bought a bike new in 2003 and sold it in 2009 with 75000 klm on it. Original battery. Never had a flat in 6 years.
You don't necessarily need a battery tender if you ride it regularly enough. How many of you have battery tenders hooked up to whatever you drive on a daily basis?
I suppose if you have a riding season due to the climate, only do track days or are only able to get out on your bike once a fortnight for a ride, then it may be a requirement.
