Where to Buy New Battery

I'm looking to buy a new battery for my bike. Where is a good place to pick one up and is another Yuasa a good choice? Thanks.

I have only ever purchased batteries by Yuasa. I bought them from Murray and Aaron @ Modern Motorcycle.

Yuasa is the only battery that I have bought as well.
Edmonds battery was nice enough to price match for me and if you give them enough notice, they will charge the battery up for you. They gave me a better price than what the dealers could do for me.

You can try asking for a discount if you did your training at a school.
