Een leuke site Het was een barre man en een no nonssens racer. Mooi project die TR500 ik ben zelf bezig met een TR250 maar het valt niet mee hiervoor de juiste onderdelen te krijgen.
Saw Barry race in 1979 at Silverstone what a race
BARRY WAS THE BEST, AND WILL BE REMEMBERED ALWAYS,STILL MISS YOU , JOSIE Sad i never met him.
Merci pour votre trÃÂ¨s beau site, Barry a ÃÂ©tÃÂ© un extraordinaire champion, avec un charisme et une gentillesse peu commune, il ÃÂ©tait adorÃÂ© par tous les passionnÃÂ©s du monde entier. GÃÂ©rard
Barry was one of the good guys that had time for all his fans, in 1974 before my son Dion was born Barry agreed to be his godfather. We had great times with all the Sheene family first in old transit van then the caravan with john Newbold's family bringing pork pie and then in the big motor home, Iris's coffee kept all our nerves under control whilst Barry put on his lucky blue pants and Gary Nixon T shirt those were the days. We have lots of lovely memories of this GREAT man, his cheeky grin when he spotted us in the crowd, Oh how we miss him. Happy birthday Barry Sheene MBE & RIP XXX
I met Barry Sheene several times when he lived in charlwood Surrey ,he often used to go to the Penta Hotel near Gatwick to have a quiet drink away from the madding crowds, he was a genuine fellow and always had time to talk and a rollup in his mouth very much missed by all R I P Barry. D, Barnes
i meet barry sheene personally in hockenheim, assen, st.joris (belgium)and cadwell park (GB) together with Gerd Vogt and Herbert Schieferecke, and it was wonderful to drink some beers together with him ! RIP Reiner (der Lange) (the German) (SUZUKI RGB500 1984/85)

Had the great pleasure of meeting Barry & Steve Parish at the NW200 in 2002. Seen them in the paddock where they spoke to all fans and competitors not just the big names. Later bumped into them in one of the local night spots where they were shooting the breeze with racers & bike fans while partaking in more than a few cheeky drinks. Great guy and a legend not to be forgotten.
