$333.73. At least that's how much it cost today.
My 1999 Honda Shadow A.C.E. Tourer has just over 25,000 miles. It has never given me a bit of trouble. I change the oil and filter and spark plugs and air filter on a regular schedule, but as I cruise down the hiways my mind's ear hears every strange noise, just waiting for trouble.
I shouldn't have worried. The mechanic at Yamaha Jack's gave it a thorough going over. Changed all of the fluids - oil, coolant, brake fluid - adjusted carbs, changed plugs and filters. He found nothing wrong and said whoever was doing the maintenance was doing a good job (unbelievably my head got bigger).
I charged out of the shop, headed for the old Vantage Hiway only to have the engine die. He turned the gas off when he parked it (just like I was taught to do but don't). Okay, try it again - runs great. Stopped in Vantage for gas and Gatorade. The temperature is tickling triple digits, there is fresh asphalt on the east bound lanes of I-90. Yikes!! I almost wish I didn't have a windshield so I could get some air to lower my body temperature a little. I stop twice near irrigation sprinklers to get a little spray, hoping that they are only spraying water. The state should put in some picnic areas like I've seen in other states, I could use some shade. I finally reach Ephrata and find that shade I've been seeking. I stuff my jacket in the saddlebag, my shoulders can burn, I don't care. Soap Lake is only 6 miles away anyway.
I am home now, the air conditioner is running at full speed, the temperature in the coach is down to 87. Bliss.
