In order to get home, I exited the highway has station with te choke half open, and closed it only when I got up to highway speeds. At speed it seemed ok. Btw, this was at about 11:30 pm, so I was a bit freaked out.

Any thoughts?
Sounds like mine when I let the fuel get old w/o treating it, but it happened at initial startup, not after running for hours.
