Update bike is running. Spent the better part of the weekend going through the harness.
When I first took the tank off it was still blowing the 20 @ main fuse. I pulled the harness out of the steering head recess and viola electric was up. Stripped the harness down pretty good looking for shorts, scuffs, anything. Couldn't find any obvious problem. I cleaned out all the connectors, applied dialectric compound, wrapped most of the harness in spllit tubing, wrapped that with electrical tape, wrapped the connectors in tape and carefully routed and stuffed it all back together.
I really wanted to find some sort of problem. I had the same experience about 40K miles ago with the harness. That time I think it was shorting on the voltage regulator bracket, didn't find anything burnt, frayed, etc. just starting working after I rerouted it.
