Question Battery Dead?

I just wanna get some people's opinion on whats going on... I'm pretty sure the battery is dead.

I went riding tonight, first time in 2 weeks, and it wouldn't crank, so I put it in 2nd gear and 'bump' started my bike. I rode for about 15 min to my buddies house and it sat for about 3 min and then wouldn't start, so I bump started it again...
After that I decided to take it on the interstate for a bit to try to charge it. I was on the interstate for 30 min and it wouldn't start after that. I'm thinking battery is dead...

Sorry for the long post :-\.

you haven't attempted to charge it at all?

Do your Regulator/Rectifier tests, and load test the battery.
