KL605 aborted it's landing at SFO this morning (11:40 am local time). Any information what caused the go-around?

As others have pointed out, this is quite common at busy airports. If you are really interested what happened exactly, you can always listen to LiveATC.net's recording.

Quoting js (Thread starter):

USAir A321 was still on the runway.

And it's KLM 281

Go arounds are the norm at busy airports. Only 2 days ago I was spotting at LHR when a BA A319 landed on 27L and the IB A321 behind did a go around and a JAL 773ER behind the IB A321 also did a go around and traffic was switched to 27R but a BA 767 landing there also did a go around and after about 15-20 mins everything resumed to normal.

That might be the call sign only as KLM lists their flight to SFO as KL605.
