Don't just "LOOK" at a fuse. Use a circuit tester to make sure that it is still conducting electricity. Check your other fuses too. and check the voltage on your battery. If it shows less than 12.5 volts, it's NOT "good".

Did you hear a pop or a click? your starter may not be getting enough power or your solenoid may have jammed due to metal contraction, A tap on the starter with a wood block may help. Is there a place that you can warm the bike up for a bit?

That old a Honda cycle I think had a 30 amp 'slow blow' fuse in starter circuit just between relay and starter- check there first. Some also about that time - I think a bit newer though-had a resetting relay good for a few resets before blowing. A weak battery would take longer to try to start- and the time of current flow is what would 'pop' the 'Slow Blow' fuses and relays from the heat build up. I replaced the OEM expensive Slow Blow with a auto motive Air Conditioner 30 amp fuse available at most parts stores- same current specs but a lot cheaper- at the time it was $1.80 or so and the Honda was $8.00/$12.00? and wiring holder was about another $5.00 Honda, auto fuse wire and holder was about $.99 or $1.29
