Never had this problem before, in the middle of nowhere phones near flat so don't want to do much searching for the answer.
Unfortunately there seems to be no clear answer on this.

Some folks tried and started immediately. Others tried and tried until the battery died. Others waited 30+ minutes and then started.

I'm one of the battery went dead well before it started. I suggest you call someone and let them know where you are just in case your phone and your bike decide to quit.

Good luck.

On a side note, you could always call BMW roadside for a tow. ( I think in AU too?)
