throttle cable snapped. please help.

Riding along and gave some gas when i hear a little pop and lose speed. I will look at the manual when i get home but does anyone know if i can use a standard bicycle brake cable? I thought about swappjng the return cable to get home but highway cops came and told me to leave as i was in a dangerous spot. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

No, you probably can't use a standard bicycle cable.

If you need one, I'll send you a real one.

I'm sure the complaint about it is only hours away, Chuck.
