Earlier this year, Ryan Tubridy stepped down as host of The Late Late Show.

He was of course given the send-off he deserved with some of the guests he spoke to over the years returning to bid him farewell.

He also received a gift from U2 as he departed the set for the last time.

He was shocked to receive a cherry red Vespa from the iconic Irish band.

Despite leaving the show back in May, he shared that he hadn’t actually received the vehicle.

Over the weekend, he shared a video of him scooting up the road!

“The U2-mobile has landed,” he captioned the video.

“A Farwell gift from the band when I retired from The Late Late Show in May…I’m still flabbergasted by the gesture. Thanks to the band and the people behind the scenes who made it happen. It’s electric, it’s red, it’s perfect.”

Well, it looks like he is having the best time with his gift!
