    If I've got stuff to do, then I can be more efficient at home because I like my home setup more than my work setup.

    If I don't have stuff to do, then I'm usually messing around with something else.

    I never thought I could do it until the pandemic hit and now I only go in to the office maybe 5 times a year. No commute means I can work in the garage till 8:59 AM. Sometimes 10 AM....

    That's dangerous to me lol.

    I don't know if I could ever actually go remote with my job, as compliance law states we need to have an office to keep documents in, and it'd be quite a feat managing documents in an office from home.

    You're good with your updated stuff. I install the cables on all of my bikes but only have 2 tenders so the bike's take turns. My FJR rarely sits more than a few days though.

    wish i was still riding that often. sold my last bike a couple years ago, now I just occasionally rip my Coleman minibike down the back road to the corner market, for a cold drink. that is my level of excitement these days.

    Phil, The pictured charger (Genius 2D) is a direct mount charger, which means it will always be attached to the bike. Unless you disconnect it from the battery. Also that one is for the standard lead acid, flooded and AGM batteries. If you are going with the Noco Lithium battery.. Go with Standard, Genius 2. That will cover all batteries, plus the Lithium. Also the G2 comes with alligator clips, but you can unscrew the wire from the alligator clips and hard wire straight to the battery. the pigtail disconnects from the charger itself too.

    Does the Genius 2 mount to the bike or do you plug it into the cord coming off the battery? I have never looked into these things....so I don't know shit about them :rofl: I want simple as can be though :D

    I'd also say you could get away with the 1amp charger if you're just using it for bikes. Some really small batteries (think old wet flooded honda mini batteries) can boil if you charge them too fast. I use a 1a for all my bikes and call it good then have a 5a for the cars and truck. If you have more than 1 bike, you'll need the extra pig tail, but if you just have one like Bill said you can just unscrew the alligator clamps and get a harness out of it that way. https://www.amazon.com/NOCO-GENIUS1-Fully-Automatic-Temperature-Compensation/dp/B07W46BX31

    Also of note: The X-connect isn't as useful as a standard SAE lead, but you can adapt between the two. With a standard SAE lead you can plug in heated gear, usb converters, voltmeters, etc. There's a whole ecosystem there. X-connect has some of that, but its not nearly as common.

    For example, I have SAE leads on two of my 4 bikes and can easily use these on them: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00DJ5KEF4

    But then use this: https://www.amazon.com/GC009-X-Connect-Accessory-Genius-Chargers/dp/B005DUMADC to then use my NOCO chargers.

    The other two I only charge and never connect accessories, so I just have the x-connect harnesses on those.

    Text inbound.

    To answer if anyone else is wondering..

    No.. The charger does not mount to the bike. The pigtail disconnects from the charger. the alligator clips to the disconnect end (for the charger) is about 24 inches.

    This will be strictly for the bike. I don't really see myself getting heated gear as we just don't have the weather for it down here. Truth be told, I should probably get one for the truck first b/c I ride the bike more :D

    I see that Noco has a SAE connector. I assume that would work if I ever got stuff to connect to it?

    That goes the opposite way, unfortunately, from bike SAE to Noco charger. SAE is a flippable connecter with no plug and receptacle (male/female) ends just the one style, which can be dangerous if you aren't keeping track of your polarity when plugging things together, but X-Connect is not and has male and female ends.
