Electric Problem Help

Hope somebody has an idea as I went for a ride yesterday on my 08 GT 1200, all was was well a few start and stops. Get home go to re-start the bike and nothing. No power, no dash light nothing so check the battery it's getting 14 volts so all good there. Added information bike has about 60,000 and a two year old Odesy battery and ridden just about every week. Any ideas?

Meter on battery terms shows 14 volts? Good.

Hit starter button with the meter on battery. Still 14 volts and nothing when hitting the button? Bad. Move meter to fuses and start hunting there away from battery terms.

Maybe ground wire came off frame or engine too? Or the hot to wherever it goes (started solenoid?).

Have been instances of the ignition switch connector or wiring being an issue. Some switchgear too. Another buggy part was the kickstand switch on some bikes. Don't know if the above would cause nothing on the dash though.

14 Volts while bike is turned off? A 12 volt batter shouldn't put out 14 Volts. A battery is going to put out around 12.56 volts fully charged.

Thanks turned out two (2) wires pulled out of the ignition switch the cheapest repair on record.
