Haroon Rafiq at MTM 15

Farzana and Haroon Rafiq, a humble couple, settled in Bangalore, are not your quintessential ride-around-world couple. After a decade of pondering over the idea and persuading his wife to accompany him…today their only question is “Where next?” They took their first big step when they bought two tickets to Germany and sent their children off to their grandparent’s house. Their first ride was along the European Alps on a rented, brand new, light blue-grey, BMW R1200RT. Covering 300kms that first day, in Munich they knew that this was just the beginning of totally new phase in life. Today, Haroon Rafiq and Dr.Zainaba Farzana hold a national record in the Limca Book of Records for being the first Indian couple to ride over six continents (America, Africa, Europe, Columbia, India and New Zealand) on BMW motorcycles, doing a 7-9 day ride across 2-4 countries in each continent.
