Unfortunately, this isn't the fault of a mechanic, but rather myself. I was on a road trip and noticed that my chain was loose, so I put the bike up on the center stand, tightened everything down, and went to work. I'm just fortunate that the part only came off during a routine trip back from a coffee shop.

You guys are absolutely awesome. I'm placing an order on the US Ebay part and am so thankful. I'm looking forward to being a regular member here and will hopefully be making regular updates to you guys about my upcoming roadtrip in June and July.

Misplaced the little hairpin type thingy that holds it on?  Don't forget it this time. You got off easy, eh? Happy trails.

 :084: don't recall there being a pin that holds the bolt on the axle?? I could be wrong tho' (it has been known!)  :087:
I was born with nothing and I still have most of it left !

There isn't. The nut is simply torqued up  :002:

Update: The eBay part finally came in. Took the nut off, slid the washer ring on, torqued down the nut, cleaned the chain and the sprocket and I am BACK IN BUSINESS! Thank you guys so much!
