My 2001 Vulcan bogs down

I was riding along today after about a half hour the Vulcan just bogged down and died. After about 5 minutes starts up and runs down the road about 9 minutes smoothly bogs down dead. Same thing over and over but it did get me back home. According to the gauges it is not over heating and it has plenty of gas. Please let me know what is wrong with her and how to fix it. Thank you for your time Roo
