I am Md Ziaur Rahman basically, I am from Dhubri, Assam. My motorcycling life has a little big story. When I was at school I love bikes from that time, I learn to ride a motorcycle when I was at 7th standard may be it was back to 2003, he was my cousin brother who taught me riding, and the interesting thing is 1st day I crash while riding it was Bajaj Boxer. I still used to ride the motorcycle when I visit my cousins home.
My first motorcycle was Bajaj Pulsar 180 I got it from my mom as a birthday gift at 2nd April 2009. As I love motorcycle very much the second thing is Nature I love that too. ‘Don’t you think that there is a relationship between Motorcycle and nature”.
When I had pulsar 180 I kept her name as “Stricker” I give a name to every bike I have. I used to ride with my mate in a group. We ride nearby place and Dhaba like every weekend. Now I am riding KTM Duke 390 and it’s my fourth bike it is named as “Veronica” by me. It is very comfortable bike for me sitting position, controlling and its a very loyal bike. Just a problem is its tank is very small need to fuel up very soon at long rides and a little bit heating problem at cities.
It’s a different feeling to ride in a group we do group ride since 2010-11 but the thing is we didn’t have any proper name at that time, It was 15th day of April 2013 finally we got a name of our group and it is “Riding Maniac”, Which was kept by me.
This group is formed to promote a better site of motorcycling, brotherhood among the bikers and to united the riders. Anyone who loves motorcycling can get the membership but the thing is he/she have to promote better motorcycling. We are the strength of 80-90 members. We had experienced many events and rides. Like to promote a better site of motorcycling last year we did an event, which was called “Treasure Wheelz” It’s a totally new concept of motorcycling. This game is based on “treasure hunt”, we took an audition 1st day about 90 bikers and then select 10 from them. The winner is rewarded with 10000 INR.
Apart from the event ride some of us have experienced long ride together like “Amazing Assam Ride’”, Sikkim, Meghalaya, Bhutan etc.
Every time I go for Ride I don’t miss out my riding gears, shoes, helmet and all but there is common question by other people, asking me “Are you a racer? Going for a race? What profit do you get by riding? Is government pay money to you?” These type of question are repeated always like when I stopped for or lunch or Fuel Up.
I had experienced some group rides but one of a memorable ride was in the week of Christmas 2016, Me and my mate ride were playing Carrom at Riding Maniac Office, It’s about 8:30 pm suddenly we plan for Sikkim. Two of us wake up at 4 am and went to Sikkim Stayed a Night there next day we return to home safely (full story at our website ridingmaniac.in) It was a good road trip.
When I ride a motorcycle its feel different to me, feels like heaven, Riding a Motorcycle can reduce my stress, I think Riding Motorcycle keep a person Young Forever.
We just got one life to see the beautiful world, So Ride safe.
Ride to Feel | Ride for Respect.
