If the bike battery is old and getting fucked, the internal resistance will be high. If you use jump leads from, a cage battery to a bike battery with high IR, you're gonna fuck the the battery up even more, which is why I only use twin and earth to jump a bike.
It's up to everyone else what they do with theirs but jumping a fucked bike battery from a cage with proper jump leads and with the engine running isn't going to do your bike battery any good... IMHO
