Question Eng light & immediate loss of power

2004 883 Custom sportster
Today on my way home, 3 different occurrences, concord to Vallejo (distance purposes) my bike immediatly lost power, engine skipped & there a backfire... I eased on the throttle, engine caught (67 down to 63ish) and she ran like no issues. Light turned off after backfire occured & engine kicked back in. Literally happened over 45 secs.. Which i was crossing Benicia bridge. I was very alert at that point to say the least.
I have checked the spark plugs, battery connection... I have the mechanics manual. Just not sure where i should begin.
There's a shop i took to in Sept that did a full service and my bikes in great shape.
Any guidance is appreciated. I'm great at following directions & fast learner. Any youtube videos you can suggest is also appreciated.
Thank you all!
