I haven't had mine very long but the weather has been great here and I've put a lot of miles down nasty jeep roads on it, along with a lot of stop-start type street miles(errands, back and forth to work, etc.) It hasn't missed a beat and there has been no noticable decline in cranking ability as has been my experience with all other batteries I have tried(all SLA AGM batteries).
I have so much more confidence in the bike now with the Shorai on board; that was the only "achillies heal" that it has ever had and while I've usually been able to get safely out of numerous situations when the SLA batteries have died, it has seriously disrupted plans and trips several times.
