I went. Their posted rates are $82.50/hour for BMW and $95 for Ducati.
They wanted $102 for the standard battery and $120 for the gel. The salesman told me I can't use my Battery Tender Jr with the gel battery and I have to use the BMW brand charger. I've been using the BT Jr. for 4 years with the gel battery in my other bike. The BatteryTender.com website states the Battery Tender Jr is "Perfect for all lead-acid, flooded or sealed maintenance free batteries (AGM and gel cell)" but I think they need to print this on the packaging.
Anyway, I'll be picking up a battery elsewhere for $50 during the week. Heck, even the H-D/Buell dealer only charges $55 for a replacement battery.
