Started losing power, slowed to dead. Had to put the gas valve to prime and open the choke to start it back up.

While the gas valve was set to prime and choke all the way open, it backfired twice before it started up, i turned the gas valve back to normal and about a mile later it slowed to dead again. I tried to pull the clutch in and give it gas thinking maybe there was a little bit of water in the gas or something to try to clear it and it didnt rev up at all it actually died faster. So I set it back to prime and it started right back up and i drove the rest of the way home with it set to prime and had no problems.

any ideas what I should check first?
