About Samir aka Samzy

From what he dreamt of when he was 18, it took grueling 7 years for him to finally redeem and welcome his own Royal Enfield motorcycle.

His tryst with motorcycles dates back to when he was 8. Going around on rides with his uncle, he fell in love with motorcycles. He asked for a Royal Enfield for his 18th birthday but his dad instead gave him a piece of wisdom; “If you got to ride a Bullet, you need to own it. Go ahead, work hard, save smart and own it yourself.”

One fine day, after years of going day-in and day- out with mundane 9 to 9, he realized he needed something to move him from within, make him think, explore, reclaim his life and go back to what he absolutely loved: Motorcycling.

Finally, he took the first step to fulfill the awaited dream and buy his own Royal Enfield motorcycle. In May 2010, he got his own Thunderbird and have been tripping ever since. He believes in the adage “”Motorcycle not only moves the body, but the soul.”

He has done most of his rides solo till he met the Bison brotherhood. Besides being on the highway, he’s a die-hard non-vegetarian by choice (save it for 20 days in a year, when he becomes Vegetarian by force), likes photography, playing football and is an ardent fan of FC Barcelona.
