i was riding on the interstate when the bike backfired and lost power. i pulled over and waited. got it to start and went about a mile then pop pop! again lost power left it for about and hour came back and started it back up.( my uncle told me to put my hand behind the tailpipe to see if oil was shooting out and sure enough oil specks on my hand. trailered the bike home, now praying for answers.

Could be a lot of things....one that springs to mind is a broken ring either compression or more likely oil. Whats the compression like?...check it with a gauge do a dry test then a wet test Dont forget to open the throttle or you will get a very low figure. If the compression improves with a bit of oil down the spark plug hole then it is more than likely valve related.

Good luck
