If it turns over as usual, the battery is probably ok. IMO, the VN750 has a weak ignition system by design. Mine fires right up at 40 degrees with full choke. It has also started easily at below 32 degrees, which only happens a few times a year here in central AZ. If it runs fine after warm up, I'd say the jetting is ok. I would look into the enrichener system. If the cable is adjusted right, have a look at the diaphrams. I have found both mine melted (not at the same time) I blame ethanol fuel, which has also melted my petcock a couple of times. Depending on where they are currently set, turning the pilot screws out a little more might help.
Upper 20s? I would definitely be taking a car. Riding a bike when it is that cold is no more fun than it is at 115 degrees. I have ridden in both. Not anymore.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
