When a fuse blows like that you are shorting to ground. Have you done any recent mods to the bike? You should check those first. After that I would start taking bulbs out one at a time until it stops blowing. At least then it would give you some idea which wires to check.

check for frayed wire shorting against frame somewhere in the wire path

I would try using an ohm meter to see if the lights, ignition switch etc is shorted to ground that shouldn't be.
