Engine unexpectedly dies while in motion

Twice in the course of thirty minutes, the engine died shifting in and out of second gear. Instrument cluster went blank. Turned key off, then on again. And engine fired right up. I thought I had perhaps not turned the key fully into the "on" position when starting out. But when this happened a second time, that seemed unlikely to be the problem.

Suspect a failing battery as the cause. The battery is the original that came with the bike, purchased in September 2011.

[Additional note: Rear ABS failure previously noted has not recurred in the past two to three months.]
