Without going into too many details, this is my line of work. You are managing your bikes well with your routine but it's not uncommon for even new batteries to fail before their time if neglected by either lack of use, maintenance or short stop start use over a period of time. Not all batteries are the same. There can be nothing worse than getting kitted up to go out for a blast and the bike won't start.
Yes, it hasn't happened to me but you do get the occasional dud. And when they do fail it is usually very sudden and unexpectedly.

Well a result and we are running again and riding as of Sunday with some 40 miles for a test so the battery was the fault but has a tender with it to keep it tip top and I am going to ride much more now to enjoy this year. My ride was chilly and damp under the tyres but bikes good in these conditions I feel so its nice to get some confidence back too.
