My alarm went off at 530 and I couldn't pull myself from the bed so I went back to sleep. I finally got up a whole hour later and riding was the last thing I wanted to do. I ate breakfast and loaded up on coffee hoping it would keep me warm for a little while. It was a long cold ride to Roswell and when I got there I noticed a small problem. I found a small gas leak coming from the choke cable. I pulled the cable and the threads were stripped. I won't go into everything but a hour later I had it plugged up but I wouldn't be able to use my choke in the morning. The guy at the Honda service center said he could get me a new cable but it would be a few days. Then he comes back out and tells me that a buddy of his at a different bike shop would give me his off his personal bike. Talk about southern hospitality. I went to buy it from the guy for $18, looks like it's not a big deal after all. I spoke to soon. I didn't need the whole cable so I asked the guy if I could buy just the plastic part that was stripped. He looked up the price and it turns out that it's $58. $58 for a little plastic piece of crap. I said screw it and left the plug in. Looks like starting my bike in the morning is going to be fun. Oh by the way, roswell sucked.
