My 2006 GS drains it's battery quickly

My 06 will drain it's battery within 2 weeks if unused. THIS CAN'T BE NORMAL. Has anyone had this issue before? I'm not too fond of the idea of disconnecting it when I'm away on business, and the thought of leaving it on the charger while I'm gone doesn't thrill me either. None of my other bikes drain so quickly. Is this an issue?

If the battery is more than 3 years old replace it.

I always keep my GSA on a Battery Tender Jr. if I know it's not going to get ridden for a few days. It will also extend the life of the battery.
