    I guess the first thing I would check is the battery connections. From there, the interlock switches- side stand and clutch. If you seldom use your kill switch, you can check that as well.

    +1 on the battery connections. I had this symptom on my old R1200GS and that's what it turned out to be.

    Positive thoughts on pun intended.

    If not, this thread discusses a few things. Your particular year model range has seen it's share of the ignition switch module below the key failing. There is a parts fiche shot in one of the posts. Have changed a few out on 05-09's. Look at post #4, part #2

    A bad connection mimics the switch failure at times, easy is the battery connection clean up to try first as mentioned
