Electrical problem

My K100RT just up and died.

I went to start it. Everything came on OK but when I hit the start button
everythign went dead. The clock still worked but thats all.

The battery is new and checks perfect. No blown fuses.

Now when I turn on the ignition I get a glow in the battery light but nothing else.

Any ideas where to start with this problem??

First thing I'd check is the ignition switch. Try jiggling the key to see if that changes the symptoms. Also check the connector under the tank.

Also check the negative cable. For several years BMW used a very small cable and they are prone to failure.
