Battery recomendations ?

Hey .

Yesterday whilst out for a spin , on My 88 R100GS bumble bee , i was proceeding along nicely ,,,
my bike just stopped ,, i had all kinds of notions running thru my head as to what had happened .
Initial thought was it had to be electrickery , because of the way it just Stopped motoring ..
Having a look over the bike i couldnt see anything amiss ,,,,,, checked fuses , run my fingers along all the main leads
outa the battery area , Nada .
I called a friend with a van ,, had it vanned back to base .
On inspection , there wasnt a kick outa the battery at all ,absolutely nothing.
My Battery is about a year old , Motobatt , I have never heard of a battery " Just failing ".
Digging out the Voltmeter , she is charging , nothing astounding , sitting about 13.5 ,but that is about it on a Std R100Gs.

Have you ever heard of a battery "Just failing " ?
What battery would you suggest as a good fitment ?
Its easy enough to be happy , when the world rolls along like a song .
A Man is worthwhile if he can smile when all around him is going wrong.
