This happened to me years ago with my VN. When it happens next get out and pour some cool water onto the crank angle sensor. If it starts again then it's usually this sensor as they can develop a heat related fault over time. Other than that check your fuel pump.
I ended up doing the fuel pump and CAS in mine and no more breakdowns until the fuel pump died about 130,000km later.
