Scooter scare

Today I was driving, and my throttle got stuck. The light was red, so I started applying the brakes, but the throttle wasn't moving. Luckily, the scooter's brakes can take full engine power (I think), and I kept it under control. I was near an entrance to a business, so I pulled into their parking lot. Then I realized that I should have just hit the engine cut-off switch.

After moving the throttle a few times and restarting the scooter, everything seemed to work fine.

So, remember kids, when your throttle sticks, just turn off the engine, don't try and hold it with your brakes.

Do you think the cold affected anything?

Glad you are ok and were able to use some quick thinking....
