No cruise or brake lights

Bike is an 07 road glide, found a blown fuse for the brake/cruise, replaced it and the new fuse blew again.
Going out to start checking things out, anyone have his problem, and suggestions on where to look ? will start with the front and rear brakes, but was wondering if the brake relay in the left side fuse box could have blown ?
any help or suggestions appreciated.

Have you replaced the bars or put new grips or controls on? Could be a pinched wire on the right side.

No haven't changed the bars but have adjusted them, I'm pulling the switch apart now to have a look.
thanks for your help

what I found

well, the aftermarket tail light had a short in it, so that was the cause of no brake lights or cruise, and why the blown fuse's, yea it took a few to find it.
But I also found that the rear brake light switch was bad, stuck closed, where the brake light was always on.
Anyway, that's how I spent my day and what I found. Everything seems to be working correctly now...
