Question Pantah Issues

I have a 1987 Cagiva Elefant which uses a 650 Pantah engine. I went on a long trip this weekend that was about 700 miles total. The bike was running great on the highway and the dirt. When I was making the last gas stop of the last day the bike would no longer idle. I got home and pulled the plugs and the horizontal plug was fouled. It looked great before I left. Is this a problem I should worry about or should I just change the plug and hope it doesn't happen again? Thanks

you could change it and chalk it up to bad gas. do you know if it's getting spark to that side? i would make sure you were.

have you seen the cagiva paris-dakkar rally-type bike. it's really sweet.
