Bummer! Fuel pump hose became disconnected inside the tank? Regulator/rectifier died? So many possibilities...
Hope you got it home safely.

Opps! Hopefully an easy fix. Just not so easily fixed on the side of the road.

Since we're always curious, be sure to let us know what happened.

So many hours in a car to get a trailer. It happened so far from home......

Next job is to search for what caused the situation

So were you just riding down the road and it died or stopped and it died on you....either way that sucks. Hopefully, it's just a dead battery or fuel line issue.

Sorry for the pain! This happened to me last year, but believe it or not, I had just returned from a ride and the engine died almost outside my house. In my case it was the fuel hose off inside the tank, a pain to fix but quite simple. Turn on the ignition and crank the engine while looking into the fuel filler hole; if you can see and hear fuel sloshing around it is the pipe off.

Mine came apart on a ride a couple of years ago. I went over a rough rail crossing and the bike just stopped running but I wasn't as lucky as you Duccout. I was far from home and by myself so I had to remove the tank and do the fix beside the road. Still wasn't that hard to do. I was lucky that a guy who lived nearby stopped in his car to help then ran home and grabbed me a hose clamp (jubilee clip?) to reattach the line. I was planning on doing the deed with safety wire to try and limp the bike home since that was all I had with me on the bike. That hose clamp is still in my tank.

You don't even need to crank the engine, just open the filler cap and turn on the key and you will hear the fuel spraying around inside the tank.

+1, had to fix mine on a lonely Canadian highway. Easier than changing a fuel filter, but you want to do it in the shop!

Hope this is "all" it is.
