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.
How are you supposed to charge the Odyssey at home if it drains? You say it doesn't like to be deep cycled? What do you mean exactly?

I have a battery charger which charges at different speeds, like from trickle volt to quick charge. What do I set it at?

Thanks!
