Default Rear Brake not working

2010 Fatboy Lo has just over 900 miles on it. Went for a ride tonight and noticed about half way through the ride that when I used the rear brake it didn't work. Feels like air in the lines. I can see no brake fluid leaking from anywhere. Any suggestions.

Check the master cylinder level first. Then bleed the rear brake, make sure you use DOT 4 on that bike too.
