I hate to say it, but why not just go buy some more? They are only about $40. It sucks if you only rode your bike a few times in the last few years as that would probably feel like you didn't get your money's worth.
Perhaps the tank wasn't as clean as it could have been. Or maybe it had a fresh coat of wax on it? I've put close to 10k miles on mine, half in the WA rain, half in the Texas sun. I didn't do a great job putting them on (a few spots on the edges never stuck because I touched them with my fingers) but they are still sticking.
Varium! You're killing me man, where are the details and more pics of the vfr swinger???
