Don't want my advice about battery...Just take it out you don't need it... Maybe you need some LEDs.

Then by the time you ride to Mancuso, the bike would have charged it up sufficiently to test out okay.
This is the only scenario I can think of that would fit your description.
I'd still diagnose by process of elimination. Jump from another big battery to see if it is indeed a battery problem. If not, then trace the connection from battery to starter vis the starter relay, then back via the negative strap. Somewhere might be a weak connection.
If all that checks out good. Then that's when you start looking at component failure - starter solenoid, starter motor, clutch bearing (dunno how HD sets it up, since I never owned one).
