I haven't dealt with them yet, but I see people using them on Chop Cult, where battery space is limited.

Some are better than others. If you get one, find one that has the highest CCA rating. They don't work well when real cold (you live in MA) but if you don't ride when it's cold not an issue.

Great for sport bikes where low weight is wanted. Or nice if you have multiple bikes that sit awhile as the battery can hold a charge alot longer than an AGM.

Personally for the money I'd just get an AGM.
