Question My Vulcan doesn't start and the dash turns off after some time

I faced a very strange case of "doesn't start" issue. I tried to find something but all search results lead me to more generic issues. You are my last hope to find a helping hand and find the way to dig.
Here's my story. Everything was perfect I rode my Vulcan without any issue and turned it off on gas station. After this and now it won't start with scenarios:

Scenario 1:
- I turn ignition on and dash lamps are lights;
- I press the Start button nothing happens and all lamps turn off;
- It completely without life for 10-15 min (Nothing happens when I turn on ignition again).
After 10-15 min Scenario 1 comes again.

I thought that this could be a starter issue and here is Scenario 2:
- I turn ignition on and dash lamps are lights;
- I can just wait about 30 sec - 1 min and do nothing;
- after this it dies for 10-15 min again.

I thought poor battery and put wires from the car. All scenarios reproduce with completely healthy car's battery.
I really don't know what to do. All my friends never faced something like this.

Thanks in advance!

Check all your wire connections, especially in the headlight bucket. Sounds like something is just loose.
