Hard Starting

Last night after work I tried to start the bike (about 48 deg) and it turned over about four times, then stopped, the lights blinked off and on, then the guages cycled again like when you first turn on the ignition and the clock turned to 1:00. (it was 3:15am) I tried it again with the same results. On the third try it started and ran all the way home with no problem. Once home I shut it off and it restarted with no problem. Whattheheckisthis? Any ideas?

I talked with my mechanic and he said it was the battery, I should have one today hopefully.
