Wheel bearing disintegrates - F800

Well there I was scampering along in the middle of nowhere when I hear a faint grinding noise followed by the back end of the bike flopping like I had a flat. Got her off to the side of the road and the tire was fine. Was not sure what happened so I tossed it on the center stand and started her up and ran her in first gear. I could see the rear wheel wobbling badly. Took the wheel off and the left rear bearing was comnpletely disintegrated. Now she sits on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere. Hopefully I can get the parts tomorrow. Monday is a non-starter as you all know...

my favorite bike - R1200GS
