Sounds like you may have a bare wire touching the frame. I know a fellow that had this problem on another type bike. He could ride it a hundred miles with no problem and then it would die. He finally stripped the down (took all the plastic off.) and found a bare wire. Taped the bare spot and it solved his problem.

Also take the master (dogbone) fuse out and examine it closely.
It turned out it was a simple fix, Battery connection, As I was posting my problem I thought wow that sound just like a bad connection, so after I posted my problem I went out and cleaned to cable and that was all it was. Thanks for your input.
