2004 gsxr

First time here and could really use someones assistance!

I have a 04 GSXR with 7500 miles. Just yesterday I started up and took the bike out for the 1st time this spring. Bike rode great with no signs of trouble.
after about two hours the bike would not start. I thought i left my key in the park position and drained my battery, so i gave it a jump and it started. once i pulled the jumper cables off the bike dies out.
So it starts up with a jump and dies out immediately once i pull the Jumper cables off.
Does anyone know how to trouble shoot or to detemine if the battery needs replacement.

I'm no bike expert, but sounds like a bad battery. I would go get it tested to either determine that's the problem or if it's something else. Might be an easy fix!!
