Just because you are handicapped/disabled doesn't mean you can't ride a motorcycle or a scooter! And just because you ride a handicapped -converted scooter, doesn't mean that it has to look like crap.

The whole setup looks good and easy to use, just roll up your wheelchair and take off. The ramp is operated remotely, so you press a button on your zapper and the ramp goes down electrically, ride up your wheelchair and roll up the ramp, and off you go.
