They already have invented batteries that last for 10 to 20 years, they use them for applications were you not have easy service access. The downside of this batteries is that they cost likely more than your motorcycle.

So to make sure your regular motorcycle battery last longer is to at least weekly check if the fluid is on the right level and the charge current doesn't excite the specifications. Even for a maintenance-free battery it's recommended that you regular check the charge current.

If you inspect your maintenance-free or valve battery and notice that the sidewalls look a bit sucked-in, it's seriously time to check your charge current, depending on how-much the sidewalls of your battery are sucked-in you maybe need to start thinking of a new battery. But sometimes, mechanics (with enough knowledge of batteries) can save your maintenance-free battery by adjusting the charging-current.

In a perfect situation a regular motorcycle battery can least for 5-years, with some people using a battery even longer...
