I live in the Boston area and am currently looking for my first moped to get around town. It looks like it's legal to have a passenger on a moped here though please correct me if that's wrong. I'm wondering if there are any strong opinions about what the best options are. So basically, what moped(s) are beginner friendly and can hold a passenger? What's the deal with long seats, are they made for two people or are they just more comfortable for some reason? Would I need pegs? Is it even a good idea to ride with a passenger?
I thought being able to seat another would be a lot more practical in the long run, but if it's not recommended, I'll take any advice on getting a a first moped. I've already read the wiki's guide to buying a first moped.
I should also add that I currently bike around a lot so I'm not a complete newbie to riding/cycling. Really looking forward to sweating less!
