Is This Ok??

I have hooked up jumper cables from my car to my bike and i'm thinking of leaving it like that overnight.. is this ok??? the reason i'm doing this is because my bike was dead when i got it back from the impound lot where it was stored indoors it didn't start.. but when i hook it up to the jumper cables from my car to the bike's battery, it starts. but when i take it off and try to start it, it won't start.. so i'm just leaving it in overnight hoping that it charges the battery... should i do this or what should i do? the car is off by the way...

The battery on your bike is a deep cycle or type 2 battery. You need a special charger that charges type 2. Take the battery over to the dealer, will take an hour or two to charge. If you use a regular charger for wet cell batteries it will fry the gell in the battery and you will destroy or lower its deep cold cranking amps.

The car idea is no good.
