Anyone ever had this happen before?

I started my GTS300 up cold after work this evening, put my helmet on and then mounted... I go to pull into the street, but as soon as I twist the throttle I hear a screech and a bang and it stalls out. I try to start back up and it takes like 5 seconds of chugging to turn over -- usually fires up in one quick tap! Seemed to run fine on the way home though...

Pasquale is 6 months old and has 4200 miles... Hope this doesn't happen again! The noise was terrifying!

I would be getting it to the dealer fast and at least document that it had a problem. That is not normal and should not happen!
