Battery issues on v-star 1100

Hello, I went to start my 1100 today. It had been sitting for 3 month due to me being injured. I had forgot to plug up my battery tender the last time I rode it. I jump started the bike and noticed that the odometer was blinking and when I ride it my speedometer does not work. When I returned home the bike would not start (dead battery) Does this sound like it is the battery being totally dead or does this indicate a bigger issue?
Thanks !!

I'd start with getting the battery charged and or tested. Replace as needed. Start with simple and inexpensive then worry about bigger issues later.

It might be a good idea to test the charging system.....the reg/rec is a failure common failure part.....and can cause serious damage if it goes into an overcharge....
