Are those spare tire carriers on the back? I can't decide which color I like best - they both look great. Thanks for sharing.

We've signed up for a motorcycle class & license (they are 150's) in a couple of weeks. Mr.InsideOut used to race moto-cross so he'll have no problem. I on the other hand have never driven a 2-wheeled motorcycle of any sort...ridden, yes - just not driven. So wish me luck ~

This thing looks almost identical to a Vespa...
