Unhappy Please help!

Today while I was riding on the highway, all of a sudden my odometer when out(no reading what so ever!) so I pulled over thinking its just the wirings and what not....sombitch wont start now! I had to pushstart the bike to get it going again. I've had the bike for A month now from Mancuso and I think the battery is still good. when I got it it had 800miles on it...im at work now and I dont know how to get back home. any possible ideas what could go wrong...
