Question Versys won't start?!

I have a 2008 Versys with 17k miles. I few weeks ago I did the 15,000 mile service by myself. Then I went on a 1,600 mile trip and the bike ran great the whole time. Since then (about 11 days) the bike has been in the garage. I just tried firing it up today and the starter works, but the engine won't fire to life. Weird.

Any thoughts on what could be wrong? Thanks!

PROBLEM SOLVED. It simply needed a little bit of throttle when pressing the start button. Now it works
