Every battery will loose some charge when its not in use. The first thing I'd do would be to put a voltmeter on the battery when its fully charged and then crank it up. If the voltage drops, you probably have a bad regulator

You've got something that's pulling from the battery. It could be as simple as a loose connection or bare wire touching the frame, it could also be a bad relay, and this will generally show when testing for an open circuit. Check any added electrical devices. Also, keep in mind that the system on a Harley doesn't charge the battery, it only keeps it topped at where it's at. So, if you have a half charge on the battery, you can ride to Hawaii and back, and you'll still only have a half charged battery. This is where a battery tender comes in helpful for garage time. I'm afraid you're just going to have to start tracing wires, and checking relays.
