I was riding to work 3 miles away, and about 2.5 miles in the bike just shut off. The rpm's stuttered and dropped down then it just died. I started it up again, but only got about 1000 feet before it died again. There is gas, and oil so I think it might be the carburetor, but I don't know for sure.

Well, check fuel and air filters, clean and/or replace as needed and try some SeaFoam in tank 2 ounces per gallon, did it run good before this trip to make the big $$ ? If so, maybe a dirty jet, hit a pot hole and jarred float?

...... hit a pot hole and jarred float?
Tell you what in Indiana, compared quickly in my mind across the US this is a very plausible thing. There are times in my big truck I feel like I am bucking on a bull, it is nuts how bad the roads are up here.
