In Joey Dunlop, we lost a fine human being, who is still revered as an unforgettable role model.



Heroes: Barry Sheene

Have more words been written about any other motorcycle racer? I know I have at least four books on my shelf and back in the 1980s I even owned a ‘Barry Sheene Annual’ that contained professional racing tips from the man himself (oh, to still have that publication).
