Question Bike randomly shut off

right before i got home today, my bike shut off when i came to a stop. It started back up fine but this is the 2nd time its happened in the last few days. It happened on Friday right before i got to a gas station. But that time I thought it shut off because its possible i was out of gas. It started back up fine both times. Should i be worried?

Did it shut off while riding or as you were coming to a stop?
By shut off I'm assuming you mean quit running but the lights and instrument panel stay on?
If so, what's it idled at?
