It sounds like you have a drain on your battery. Something is still live and is draining it. Charge up the battery and the bike will probably start. It will not, however, solve the problem. You still will need to find what is drawing the battery down with the key off.
It ain't about the destination - it's all about the journey

No draw on battery. Batt hot. Fuses good. A relay snapping.
