This happened to me the first week of November. I was on the freeway doing about 70 when the bike started to lose power. I downshifted and tried to accelerate, but continued to lose power. I dove for the side of the freeway and almost made it to the curb when the rear wheel locked up. The dealership sent a trailer and a mechanic to manually release the rear brake. It took three weeks to get the proper replacement parts and new pads, but its all good now.
