I pushed that all the way down on the side of the road.... THEN I kicked the out of it in gear and dropped the clutch and then BOOM!! It started it...

What are you talking about? "kicking the out of it in gear" ?

This is the 3rd battery I've replaced in 1 1/2 year

Soooooooo as soon as I could, I got on the shoulder and waited for traffic to go by, then all you see its my fat running down the street with my bike trying to kick start it... thats the first time in a long time that I had to do that.

So what you guys think with this battery problem? its a fairly new battery.
You think it may be that thing called rectifier (or something like that)

Thanks!
Dude.. Since when are you fat????

i have never had a problem with batteries on any of my bikes...i keep the battery tender plugged in if i am not going to ride it for more than 5 days. the current battery in my gsxr is 3 years old...my stock busa battery lasted 5 years before i showed signs of wear.
If i am going to ride on Saturday morning, i usually plug it in an hour before i head out.

have u installed any aftermarket electrical parts like runner lights, blue/ white bulbs,,etc?

I think that this bike has a chargin problem.

I got the bike with 2,000 miles and a week later I had to replace the battery, So I was okay with it becuase I didnt know if it was just old...
then I got a new battery and 9 months later it had to be replaced, then on december I got this last one and it only lasted it me abou 5 months.

I do think there is a problem with the charging system, I will replace the Rectifier (will cost $30) then see if it helps.

No aftermarket light other then a kit for my HID lights..

Yup, that happened to me last summer the same thing, I brought the battery from cycle gear, and I kept the receipt which didnt matter cause they keep ya purchase info on record on the computer and they just replaced the battery for free, cause all batteries either have a lifetime warranty on them or a 1 year warranty which they will replace it for free.
