Hey seniordirtdog. Did you have exactly the same problems or a similar isolated incident? 6 weeks ago I rode the bike for about 30mins. Parked it and came back 5 hours later only to not be able to get the bike started. Went to the local parts shop and got a bike battery. Not a BMW certified one but close enough (I'll get flamed for this ;) ). The result; The bike behaved exactly the same way as with the BMW battery. Subsequently I had the bike towed, the dealer put the old battery back in and I've been riding around with it for 6 weeks without issues.
