I am now officially declaring today International Check Your Cables Day.

Lest you get stranded on the side of the road 10 minutes from your house after having your clutch cable snap and have to crawl home in first gear, do yourself a favor and check your cables today - or soon - because you never know... that 10 minute trip could become your 25-minute, 15 mph ride of shame ;)
Just a little word to the wise because apparently I wasn't wise enough to do so myself.

If you heed this message, you get gratuitous photos of my bike (whose cable snapped) - it's a 2000 Ninja 250.
