    Bizarre. Maybe you caught some crap in the rotor/calipers that made it stick...or possibly it was the aliens...

    I just had this happen to me. In the middle of nowhere and I get a flat tire.. I braked pretty hard but the abs didn't feel like it kicked in but maybe. Fix flat, air up tire and tried to leave and it struggled so I pulled over immediately. I think I got to third gear before I figured some thing was really wrong. When I pulled off the first time and stopped the bike I didn't turn the key off because I was using the pressure gauge on the display. When I got off the second time knowing something was wrong I remembered this thread.. I turned the key off and there was a click from the rear and the bike settled backward because of the incline. Problem gone, went on my merry way. Just turning off the key was enough to fix my problem.

    One thing you may want check or do is bleed the rear brake.

    When the dealer did it when I brought it in they got a few air bubbles out of it.
