If I had this device could I disconnect the battery and temporarily connect this device in place of my battery to get back to civilization?
I would not recommend that use due to the fact that this is a different lithium chemistry and we don't have enough testing in for this particular situation. I can suggest the use as a jump starter which will get you on the road again.... but then try to keep the revs high by riding in a lower gear until you get home. The bike should have stayed running once going but the problem is many bikes alternator/startor/charging systems only kick in above 3000 rmps... so you were not getting any spark, but you should have your system checked definately. The bike should have stayed running.
