pickup coil failure

at 42,000 miles my bike had an ignition failure. the pickup coil failed. i was shocked when old blue wouldnt start start one day. i have never read of a dr650 doing this. im still not mentally over this!!!!!!!!!! i cant remember how many times i have been 40 plus miles into the forest with this bike. now i have little confidence in old blue. i stay close to main roads in the fear of the bike quitting on me. i have had tons of different bikes over the years and never had an ignition failure.
