I can start it off now.

09 will not start. Battery is good. All lights work. Horn ect. Seems like I have read about the kick stand switch being a problem. There must be a way to bypass that switch so that I can tell if it's the problem. Anyone know how to do this? I'm in the middle of a multi day ride and could sure use the help

IIRC, you should be able to disconnect the wiring and shunt them together to test it out. Also, there is a clutch safety switch you should check. They sometimes clog with goo and stop moving.
