With all the traffic nowadays sometimes I wish I had a scooter or maybe a super powered motorcycle wherein I can fly off the road and get to my point of destination in a jiffy without all the fuss and hassle that the everyday traffic along the confines of Edsa brings to me. (Oh a dream is a wish your heart makes) Me singing again that song from one of the classics that I loved! 🙂
Good thing, there is this new innovation from Honda! 🙂 I once had a joke to my friend about Honda.
Brace yourselves, it’s about to get corny! 🙂
L: Use Honda in a song?
L: Honda-ro-rot-rot-rot Happy birthday to you (Sings this 2x)
Okay fine, that was so corny right? hahah! 🙂 But hey it caught my friend’s attention for a minute there !:) So let me continue on this post with something new and cool from Honda! 🙂 Here’s a quick video to showcase their new line 🙂
