The Trip Machine Family
Here are the individuals who make Trip Machine Company tick :-

Founder of the Trip Machine project and purveyor of fine handmade leather goods for your motorcycle. Loves the colour yellow (if it wasn't obvious enough) and loves to chill on beaches around the world. Has three four legged friends and four two wheeled ones. The Trip Machine Company was infact inspired by probably the most prized motorcycle in his collection, his Royal Enfield Bullet Electra, which he has lovingly named 'Veera'.
Rishabh Wadhwa - Visual Content Officer
The Blessed Human! Little do the motorcycling faithful that are loyal consumers of the Trip Machine content know that Rishabh is an Internet celebrity in his own rights. Popularly known as Blessed Arch on Instagram and among the Architecture circle, he has a big and loyal fan following, regularly posting fun and engaging one minute videos which he is most renowned for. As for bikes...ehm...lets say he is vaguely aware of how they work.
Vijay Krishnan - Social Media Manager
Believes that two wheels do certainly move the soul. Vijay is an old soul and loves vintage and classic motorcycles. He would rather take it slow and enjoy the ride than to go blindingly fast and this reflects In his taste of bikes. Loves writing and indulging in watching movies in his spare time. His dream is to own a Vintage Triumph TR6 Trophy someday.
Nehman Raffiq - Sales Officer
Nehman is one of the earliest members of the TMC family and is now on course to completing two years living the Trip Machine life.

A true biker and lover of all good food, he dreams of owning a Triumph Bobber one day.

Pam is from Manipur and comes equipped to speak several North Eastern languages as well as having a good command over English and Hindi. She hates false promises and despises being tardy. Let's just say its Goodbye Nehman and Hi Pam for those calling into us.
Sukbha Nongspung - Design and Production Head
Sukbha or Suk as she likes to be called is our designer in-chief and is responsible for most of the tasteful goods coming out of the doors at Trip Machine. She comes down from the abode of clouds in Shillong and has honed her skills from NIFT Shillong. Loves coffee and sleep which are paradoxical to say the least. But don't think for a minute that she would have it any other way.
Anup Sapkota - Production Executive
Hailing from Sikkim, Anup loves to indulge himself in playing cricket and the occasional football match as they are his favourite sport. He says that his love for cricket is so deep that it can in-fact be considered his hobby. Anup says his next dream escape would be to one of either Darjeeling or Gangtok. He loves the Harley-Davidson motorcycle and could be found munching on his favourite snacks if he is neither working nor playing Cricket.
Afroz - Pattern Master
Another new addition to our family, Afroz or 'Master Ji' as he is lovingly known is a wizard with the leather and has a vast wealth of experience and knowledge when it comes to working with leather. He wants to be a part of something special which is why he says he joined the Trip Machine project. Like many, Master Ji loves the occassional prank and is fond of Royal Enfields.
Umesh Popli - Operations ManagerUmesh has seen it all with Trip Machine.

Kulfi - HR Officer
Kulfi is the first member of the Trip Machine brat gang. Don't let her resting bitch face throw you off as she is our brightest wick and the most mischievous. If she is not to be seen snuggled up in her bed and sleeping her days off, she would be heading up the gang on their next mischief. Kulfi is technically a Gul Terrier by make and hails from Punjab, which should explain her unbelievable appetite and affinity for chicken and paneer.
Mowgli - Chief Security Officer
Mowgli is our ball of energy. He is one among the only few in the world that can fully justify their name. A local boy from Gurugram, he indulges in extreme sports and expert surveillance. He loves his protein and religiously works out 7 hours a day. Mowgli has no particular affinity for motorcycles apart from a tendency to mark his territory, a lot like the older Enfield motorcycles.
Shantaram - Motorcycle Maintenance and Security
Our most lively member when it comes to giving a vocal performance and exercising her vocal cords. She is the personification of a surprise package and sounds like she swallowed a million screaming poodles when on duty. She loves old motorcycles and has a vested interest in our old Jawa. Shanti is the easiest to make friends with and is deceptively fast on the trot. To all trespassers, you have been warned! She will find you and she will charm you.
