Bonneville won't start

I have a 2007 Bonneville T100, which normally starts and runs just fine. A month or so ago, the battery started to not hold a charge, would be hard to start, and the bike would actually cut out shortly after take-off. A month went by without it being ridden. In that time I fully charged the battery and attempted to start it again. With the fully juiced battery, it still wouldnt start, and within a few tries, drained the battery again. Even after attempting to jump it, still nothing. When the key is in the ignotion, all the lights light up, just no start. Do I simply need a new battery?

If the battery won't hold a charge, it's time to replace it.
