Leave it on a charger and you'll have no problem. LiFe batteries have a (very) low self discharge rate but the problem is the black drain the bike has because everything isn't really off when the ignition is off. HD has the dubious honor of being the industry leader in how much the the not really off system drains... Just use a good LiFe charger like an Optimate. I picked up and Optimate TM-291 and a TM-471 (2 because my R9T will also get a LiFe battery when its' battery dies) on e-bay very reasonably by being patient.
