Bike stalls when clutch is in and first gear is ingaged

This is my first post so please bear with me. We had some unusual good wearther so I decided to take the bike for a run. By the way I have a 2001 V-Star 1100 Classic. The bike ran great. But a few days ago while it was in the garage, I would start it up, pull the clutch in and when I put it in first gear, it shut down. Does anyone know why this is happening?

check the sidestand sensor...it may have gone south on you...if it's not reading the stand is up it will shut you down immediately!
