Just got back from a 12 mile ride on my garelli. towards the end of the ride (luckily i was only about a half mile from home) i was cruising along at 28-30 when my engine slowed and stopped very quickly, causing me to coast to a stop. it sounded like what i would imagine a seized piston to sound like, which scared the shit out of me. kind of a sharp metal-on-metal noise. i coasted to the side of the road and let the bike cool off for a minute or two, then tried to kick it back over. it started right up, idling perfectly. did i experience a soft seize? if so, what can i do to prevent this from happening again?
