When the engine was turning over easily , could you hear where the air(compression) was going. ie out the exhaust or out the aircleaner. What was the last thing you did to the bike before you rode it. Did you clean the airfilter or maybe washed it and left it for a couple of days. I have heard of debris getting in through the aircleaner and holding valves open. And also corrosion forming on the exhaust valves causing them to stick also. But I think you will need to check your decomp cable carefully. As it was the last thing you did before kicking it over to start it.

To fix it, I find giving the bike a couple good kicks works, the compression will start to return and then the bike starts. Others pull the plug and pour a teaspoon or so of oil into the cylinder which seams to work also.
