Best place to buy a battery besides the stealership

ok, the hardley needs a new battery.
I went to autozone today and searched and found one that would physically fit, negative on the right and fit the compartment size wise.
I install it and it starts the bike, but its not happy, I think with the uptoodles of compression, I needs a space shuttle battery.
None of the batterys I saw at Sears and autozone list the cranking amps like automotive batteries do.
Are there decent high CA (cranking amp) bike batteries available ?
Any ideas and I'll take this battery and install it in the old school suckzuki, it needs one anywho

Here ya go Tim. www.odysseybatteries.com We sell these batteries at the shop, but you can probably find one cheaper online if ya look around. They carry a higher price tag than most conventional batteries, but the features make them worthwhile IMO. Ill see if i can find any more info for ya. Joe

i have bought 2 odyssey batteries from this place in the past. I REALLY like the odyssey as it's not acid filled and needs no charging before hand. also stronger and seems to last alot longer
here is where i get mine at.
