Bike shuts off while riding. HELP!!!

I was riding it on a straight and the whole electrical system shut off all of a sudden; as if the ignition was turned off. I had to turn the key to off and on again and the power/electric came back and I hit the start button. It started rigth away. But later that day the same thing happend again when I was riding through a corner in low speed. Thanks god for that I did manage to stay on the bike.
Following things I have checked.
- I have checked the batteri. It is good and have good capasity. I have also tittend the negative and positive poles.
- I have checked the earth braid and it is in good shape.
- I have Powercommander and GPS tracking on the bike. Idont know if that has something to do with this problem.
- Can it be the ignition?

Anyone know what might be happening here? This is gonna really bother me as it could've been real bad if it wasnt a straight road.

I ride a Honda VTR SP2/ RC51, please help me out here guys :/

what you're describing is usually one of the following;
1-bad/loose connection somewhere
2-bad ground

The main ground is covered by the tail section. Remove the tail to inspect it closer. There is a pinch point between the tank and the frame for the wiring harness, be careful its not pinched or cut there either.

Check the +ve wire going to the main fuse near the battery. I had a problem with ignition switching off over bumps, etc. and that's what it turned out to be.
