Unhappy Intermittent Starting prob ..... Poss bad Ignition?

I bought a 13 Road Glide in Houston TX and rode it back to Jacksonville FL.... no issues other than a flat ........ ..

Got home, been riding it ... no problems at all .... The bike only Had 3600 miles on it when I picked it up. Went to go move it into the garage and when i turned the ignition ..... NOTHING .... no power, no wheel unlock, lights ..... nada ..... Well i played with the switch back and forth ... nothing ....... came back the next day, turned the switch ... worked just fine ..... forks unlocked, fired right up. Rode it yesterday, it rode good, with no issues until I stopped at a gas station and shut it off. came back out, same issue .... nada working...... let it sit for about 10 minutes after playing with the switch ...... fired right up

is this a common prob on 13's? I am coming from an 07 Ultra to my first Road Glide.

If I were you I do the simple electrical checks first battery connections etc. The other possibility is the previous owner took the ignition switch out (No wheel lock) and did not re-install it correctly; here a link to a sticky on removal off the ignition

I would remove and re-install the mechanism and see what happens.
