GL1800 dead, nothing when I turn on ignition

I went to turn on 2006 Gl1800 yesterday and nothing. No lights, dash lights, nothing. Tested the battery and its 13.12v. Any ideas? Thanks

Very first thing I would check would be the run/stop switch. It is amazing how often this switch gets inadvertently turned to stop. If that does not solve the problem, I would then begin checking fuses with an Ohm meter. Viewing them does not normally give good results. An Ohm meter does.
