Jumping a motorcycle battery with a car is not a good idea. Since you do not know the maintenance history I recommend the following:
change plugs, change oil and filter, change air filter, check air box, check stator (motorcycle version of car alternator), drain old gas and put in high octane gas for first tank, clean fuel injectors, do an electrical check of system to make sure no damage was done with car jump, and make sure kick stand safety system is not an issue (if the sensor is bad or acting up, the motorcycle will not start (at least on my 08' FZ6).
Also, check the clutch cable, brakes, all lights, all all fuses and make sure the drop did not damage anything. The idea is to establish a baseline of YOUR MAINTENANCE and of course to get it running.
