'13 g4; 81k miles and engine fail

Ran perfectly right until I heard a chatter noise and felt loss of power; not total loss; on CA slab, busy; no. 1 lane; traffic on right two lanes heard noise and nicely backed down allowing for me to target a safe place on right shoulder; waited for AAA tow.

I'll call Kawa dealer to set up drop off and will get back here with their report with details.

Bike passed 81,000 miles or very close to that figure; engine overhaul at 70500 miles. 2013 purchased new Sept. 2014 with extended warranty through Sept. 2019.

The bike ran the last 10k miles with pure beauty.

AAA was perfect in getting both the bike and myself home without feeling like an extorted victim.
