I do exactly that with my snowmobile in Utah. I have a quick disconnect and the battery is just velcroed in with a rubber strap. I keep in on the shelf and it takes 10 seconds to put it in.

On my F650.... so far never run into a situation where it was below 40 but my next mod is to relocate the LifePO4 under the seat with a quick disconnect. So I can do the same.
