As one commenter says, he needs a diode on the hot side to prevent energy loss back out of the battery.

Looking at that setup - i think it's a great proof of concept, but I might make some adjustments if it were to be used long-term. I do think some sort of pulley or gear on the alternator rather than just up against the tire would be a good idea - this setup allows for no modifications to the bike, but that rubbing against the sidewall is going to wear out the tire. I guess you have to balance the costs and figure what works best for your situation.
