Few weeks back the whole biking community went mad about a video which focused about Best Bikers in Bangladesh. I was sad to see the video as it didn’t include some of the fastest best rider from our country, those who achieved a lot both in BD & aboard. Today I will share My Favourite Top 5 Bikers in Bangladesh
In this list I have added ONLY THOSE with whom I rode motorcycle together on the same day, at the same time & on the same track. I will agree that there are better riders in Bangladesh then the following list but to me these 5 are my top favourite.
Abu Saeed- There isn’t much to talk about this guy. He completed TT in Bangladesh, SS in Bangladesh, BB while he was in India. Went to Ladakh twice, once with a Honda CG125.
He has some great natural talent stored in sense; that 6th sense of knowing where the grip is before he turned into a corner, something I have seen while he rode his CG125.
He was on course for a tour to Saudi Arabia with his motorcycle to perform Umrah but sadly due to some visa issues & current Covid 19 situation that tour is now on hold. He showed me that a rider is more important then a biker on any tarmac.
Abdul Momen Rohit- Right from word go he will twist the throttle to the max, all the times I have seen him riding I have seen him riding on the edge of the limit.
He too completed TT & SS in Bangladesh. Am not sure whether he performed BB, if he have done then sorry I may have missed it. He also went to Bhutan with his Yamaha Fazer & along with Saeed Bhai he too went to Ladakh.
He used to ride his Fazer in a very different way; Fazer usually is a soft core bike, good for cruising long distance but he used to punch it very hard. Rohit Bhai was the person who taught me & many about hand signals while riding on the highway at 2013 Sreeemongol tour with BRC.
He is a very big fan of off roading and if you look at his facebook profile then you will understand that probably he have covered more then 80% tarmac of Bangladesh with his motorcycle.
June Shadiqullah– When I first met him back in the 2013 Sreemongol Tour with BRC (irony) he mystified me a lot, in that tour he was carrying a pillion on his Yamaha FZ16 but the way he was braking really made me a big fan of him.
Hands on heart he is one of two guys who actually trained me to ride on the highway the best & safest way possible. With him & Abid Bhai I did some very extreme tours.
June bhai went on a ride to Nepal twice, once he went there with Lifan KPR150 all the way from Cox’s Bazar to Nepal. He also completed TT ride in Bangladesh.
Abidur Rahman– Abid bhai is a close friend of June bhai, & I think most of the extreme or major ride which June bhai did he had Abid Bhai as his riding partner.
Just like June Bhai Abid bhai also has that natural ability to control the bike under breaking the best efficient way. He was the person who taught me to keep a low tyre pressure on the front tyres as it is easy to control the rear of the bike but if the front end looses then it will be hard to gain control on it.
Abid bhai too went for a ride to Nepal from Bangladesh with his Yamaha M Slaz.
Ahasan Habib – the biggest lose for the Bangladeshi biking community! It is sad to what happened to him last year but I will always remember him as one of my closest buddy. It is hard to find someone who caled Habib bhai but didn’t get a response from him.
The reason why I have him on the list is not only because he was an amazing human being but also because on the twisty hill track roads of Bangladesh he always maintained the art of staying on the correct lane. It was him who taught me a lot about ENGINE BRAKING, something I never used before 2017.
TT – Teknaf Tetulia Ride, 1000 km under 24 hours
