I had something similar happen when I adjusted my clutch once. I wanted it to be tighter, thinking that it would give me more control and possibly better/firmer contact with the plates in the clutch. Right after that, I went on a trip up to Red River, about 200 miles away. No problems the entire trip up, and a few jaunts around the area, but when I started coming back home, it started slipping, and I could barely move the bike, even with the clutch all the way out. I tried loosening it a little, but barely any change. Finally, a friend stopped to help, and he let the clutch back out to where it was when I started, and the bike ran pretty much "normal". You might have adjusted yours too much, too. As others have suggested, lubing would also be good.
