Default Bike went dead 2006 Vegas Jackpot

Hello and thanks. I have a 2006 Vegas Jackpot. I have owned it 5 months. Has 22,000 miles on it. Has run great.
Yesterday, I was pulling into a parking lot and the bike just shut down. No power of any kind when key turns on. Could not push and jump start it or jump the battery.
Just nothing when turning key on.
Any suggestions as to what might be wrong before towing to a dealer? Best regards, Marty

how old is the battery? Put a full charge in it and take it to a battery store and have them do a load test.

Thanks for all the suggestions, they are greatly appreciated. I don't know about the kill switch. Could not get to fuses since I could not get the seat off, not where it is sitting right now and bolts are really tight, allen wrench wants to start to strip, so they will need a good soaking. Got a new battery, but the one on the bike shows 12.9 volts sitting, so the battery is not bad.
I am having the dealer come pick it up and take it to shop. Could be a simple fix, who knows. I put a test on the ignition to ground, and showed no volts.
So something has just gone bad. :-(
Thanks again for all your responses. Regards, Marty

We have tried the kill switch off and on quite a few times, so it is not the kill switch in wrong position.

your a step above you have a meter and use it. Good for you

wonder why the seat bolt aren't finger tight. I mean we all sit on them so there not going to fly off.
If your on the side of the road and don't have a wrench in your pocket what do you do

Thanks again, all the connections looked solid. Loosened and tightened the cables. Still nothing. Had the bike picked up this morning by dealer. They are working on it now.
Best regards, Marty
