Top bloke, IMO one of the most naturally talented riders in the world! shame he never tot to win a World Championship - he certainly had/has the quality to do so

He's pretty much at the peak of his powers and it'd be great to see how he fares against the likes of Rea, Sykes, Haslam and Crutchlow now. For what it's worth, on an equivalent bike, I think he'd still beat them. I want to see him in WSBK.

Good interview. A well liked bloke and I think for good reason, Shane seems pretty down to earth and is almost always smiling which makes such a change from some of the miserable so and so's in the sport.

I'll buy your book mate just to learn the truth about the dark side of m/c racing!

One of my favourite riders ever...

Just always comes accross as a down to earth nice bloke who you could go for a pint with.

Was cheering him on the podium at the final rounds at Brands was emotional when he pushed for the win. Just one of those amazing moments in sport similar to when Tommy Hill took the champ by a fraction the year before.

Agreed I'd love to see him on a top bike in WSBK to see how he'd get on against his old rivals and friends. Also interested to hear the truth about the machinery was on when he was there as most haters and trolls say he had the best machinery and failed. Saying tha the only thing similar he had to Checa was the fairing would confirm what we all suspect..

Will be buying the book..

@DreadUK I would actually go as far as to say BSB attracts a much nicer class of racer - take people like Shakey, Rutter, Josh Brookes, Alex Lowes, Stalker etc, they're all guys who come across as happy and down to earth in interviews, and willing to share a joke or meet fans.
I've got my tickets for the Brands opener already, can't wait!

I am so thankful I discovered BSB and have even gotten some of my friends here in the U.S. interested. At our Fall motorcycle rally, I played the last few races of the season and they couldn't believe the action and the tight BSB tracks. Now they all know Shane "Shakey" Byrne and are waiting for me to share the race downloads this season. Rooting Shakey on the entire way!
