Is the WestCo unit you mentioned actually a Gel battery or of the AGM variety? Assuming I want to get away from the typical wet battery (which, even when sealed, isn't "very" sealed....), it seems there are only two choices: Gel and AGM. Which is the better choice for motorcycle use and why?

Point-of-clarification. I see in my original question I used the term "sealed" when I really should have said "manintenance free". I realize sealed means just that (until broken, of course) and maintenance free is a bit more subjective. Particularly when the battery is not always vertical, I suppose. Anyway, I'd appreciate a little education on the subject from a battery expert. dm
