No. 5 is Alive

So, yesterday I experienced my first dead battery after leaving my parking lights on all day, rode her home after a jump start trying to charge the battery , parked on the street and I think everything is cool.

Fire her up this morning, starter engages, bike starts, riding around and everything is cool, except when I try to turn the bike off!!

The bike will not stop running! Kill switch, no good. Turning key to the off position, no good. I can hear the starter continually whirring in these two positions. I think the bike is off and wham, the starter engages by itself, lurches the bike forward and I hang on and get her to settle down by engaging the clutch. Finally, I put the kick stand down and she shuts down.

What is going on here?
