‘I dream of Sheenie’

Stuart Barker is a lucky man. From drawing pictures of Barry Sheene’s XR45when bored at school he’s only gone and got himself a ride on it…Oh, and he’s even allowed a pop on Kevin Schwantz’s XR84 from 1994, too. The git.


Yamaha YZF-R6

Back in 1999, Yamaha developed a supersport machine like no other: the track focused R6. In 2021 it effectively disappears fromYamaha’s range. Here’s Alan Cathcart’s ride on the World Supersport contender.
