THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: When asked about his craze for riding and bikes, Alameen Raja directs you to his Facebook account and asks, “Isn’t it evident here?” To sum up, this 23-year-old  is an adventurer who has toured from Thiruvananthapuram to Mumbai via Bangalore on his bike, has tamed most two-wheelers from ordinary bikes to sports bikes, manages a car and bike sales business, has done an auto-expo for an intercollegiate fest, administers a 100-plus member strong bike club named Club Moto and is currently gearing up to showcase his skills at the upcoming edition of the Indian Motorcycle League competition, launched in 2014 akin to the Indian Premier League only for riders. It is a three-part race. His ClubMoto works on the principle of safe riding. They were active in the road safety awareness drive conducted by the Kerala police recently. He also dreams of opening his own automobile company in the future and taking a two-wheeler ride from from Kanyakumari to Kashmir. Alameen is currently a final-year BTech Computer Science student at Narayanaguru College of Engineering, Kanyakumari.

“I wanted to do Mechanical Engineering but did not get a seat and landed in Computer Science. I love machines and so refer books based on that. My dad is supportive of my exploits, but my entire family is worried about the possibility of my getting into a road accident,” he says. From the money he earned from the automobile business, he bought four bikes, one Honda CBR 250, Kawasaki Ninja 250R, Royal Enfield Bullet 500 and Yamaha RX-135. He has three shops and one wing is exclusively dedicated to cars and bikes.
