I would speculate that the "typical" later model GS's or HP2's would have about three weeks to a drained battery incapable of starting the motorcycle. To avoid this situation you MUST use a tender.
Please make the measurement, I am very very curious why your bike seems to be so special.
I'm curious too. Actual measurements are good.
FWIW, two weeks drained a brand new Oddyssey battery that was definitely fully charged.
