I was riding my 96 Shadow ACE 1100VT2 today and the engine started coughing and running rough. I pulled over and it quit all together. I checked not a fuel problem. No electric, no light, no starter. I checked what I could reach and no loose wires, burn smell from shorted wires, just dead. I had it towed home, BTW Progressive Roadside was very good, and when it cooled off at home it started again.

Any ideas what could cause that? The battery is new and connections are good.

sounds like it could be a bad coil. Since you said after it cooled down it started right up. Usually the sign of a bad coil is it'll run for a while get hot and die, then after it cools off, say for like half an hour it'll start back up and then repeat. Check and see if it has consistent spark.
