Remember when you first rode Luna & TVS 50

Luna with only rider seat was considered youth version and one with long seat or double seat was considered family version.

Remember when your mom used to wake up at 5:00 on a winter morning to get you ready for school ?

Remember when you brought home your pet ?

No need to be confused - the company that made those noisy bikes was taken over by Brooke Bond & that is how the original BSA Falcon GT 50 became the BSA Bond.

Remember when Kinetic Honda was lauched. It looked very futuristic and many believed it won't stand too long against Bajaj Chetak and LML Vespa....

Remember the first girl you fell in love with?

For you ladyboys:
Remember the first boy you fell in love with?

Your first kiss, your first touch... the first time you did it?
