If it starts running rough again try opening the gas cap to see if there is a vacuum. Never had that problem on my nomad but I did on my Roadstar. The vent got blocked and wouldn't let the gas flow properly.

Check your battery and the connections Mine did this once and turned out to be a bad battery connection, I figured I didn't get the connections tight enough after having my ECU reflashed by Ivan this spring!

My first thought was the same as DaPreacha's.

Battery would have been my first guess. Might check the short wiring harness from ignition key. Have you checked it yet?
Known issue, If its shorting you get issues.. There's a lot on it hear EZ fix.
