Damage it. The rapid discharge/little recharge scenario seems to cause problems with these batteries(as would any) but usually results in a dead cell inside the battery and/or a swelled case over time.

Odyssey is a HUGE company for batteries in the "chopper" motorcycle industry and they're well known to crap out on those bikes where guys start/stop all the time riding from local place to place. Our's crapped out on the $200K Jet's chopper bike we built and we(customer) ended up forking over the funds for a custom built TEK and it's like night and day in comparison to the Odyssey.
