Everything you said makes complete sense. But I had a day where I left my ignition switch on and only turned it off at the kill switch, so the headlight stayed on. A half hour later, my battery was just a little too weak to start the bike. I realize that the starter would draw too much juice for the fuse or cable, but if I let it charge for a while from a donor bike (without attempting to start it), I figured that the battery could "come back" enough to start the bike on its own.
I wouldn’t hope that a battery would come back enough to start.
I’d rather carry something that I know will start the bike.
If you’ve got another bike to jump from you also have someone to give you a push to roll start it.
I’d roll it, crank it, and keep getting it.
