Thanks for your site! I'm painting my YSR into Sheene colors for the upcoming Laguna Seca MotoGP. The photos are a great reference.
Also, your pics of racing the HD RR250 are fantastic. Don't think I've ever seen more or better! I hope you still have the Harley.

I metBarry when I was an Air Hostess and he was a delightful passenger and only lived a short distance from me in Charlewood . I loved his sense of humour and was an excellent passenger at all times. so sorry he is not here

Very nice site, i am also a big fan of Barry. The project bike looks good, and your home made helmet is no on sale in UK/USA, it`s very similar!

Congratulations on a great site Gerard, Barry Sheene was and still is my all time hero and to see somebody else with as much enthusiasm as yourself is uplifting. He was a great character and ultimate sportsman who is sorely missed here in the UK as well as around the rest of the world, the world is a sadder place without him. Keep up the great work and I will hopefully find some photographs I took of him in the early 80's and will try to send you some for your site,once again congratulations and keep up the good work.
Barry was my hero and watching him on tv got me into motorcycling and moto gp.I have in process of buying the AGV replica of Barrys helmet.Your site is fantastic keep up the good work i think Barry would love it.

What a fantastic web tribute to an absolute legend. If memory serves me correctly i was racing the 250cc production support race at phillip island in 2001,and on the satdy nite i was at the cowes isle of white pub having a beverage, when out of the corner of my eye i see Bazz walk through the door, well my jaw dropped and i nearly dropped my beer!! I said " Gday Barry how are you! his reply was "Good Thanks" he gave me a smile that lite up the room and a nod.I really wanted to chat with him but i thought he may have been there to meet someone and didnt want to get in the way, But looking back know i wished i had of pulled him up for chat! I will never ever forget that.
Your the best Barry.

My name is Keith Wallace, and i have been a fan of barry's since i seen the crash in 1975 at Daytona. This site is fantastic, it's nice see all your memories on 1 site.
In 1976, i was a skinny 16 year old who was the proad owner of a Yamaha FS1E, (oronge tank) and myself and a few mates used to race around the streets of Salisbury pretending to be Barry Sheene, with our knees sticking out as far as they would go, and lying flat on the tank, (all this at 40mph, hee hee hee) and thinking we was at donnington, mallory, or silverstone. Great days. I was fortunate to meet barry twice, once at donnington in 1979, where he chated to me for some time. His father, Frank, was also there, he's a great guy to, very friendly. And again at donnington when barry was into truck racing. We talked at great length about the power differance between his Daf 3300, and the Daf 2800 that i was driving at the time. We had a right laugh, he was brilliant. I can remember crying when i heard of his death in 2003,this world is now minus a great legend.
To his familly, Stephanie and the kids, i wish you all well for the future. To his Mum and Dad, your son was an insperation to so many, allthough he's gone, he will never be forgotten.
