William Joseph “Joey” Dunlop, OBE (25 February 1952 – 2 July 2000)

Joey Dunlop

“Joey was THE MAN. He was the one every other rider looked up to, and all the other road racers wanted to beat. Some people just wanted to be able to say ‘I raced against Joey’. He was so cool, so laid-back and he did it his way. It’s one thing to be known by everyone, but it’s another to be respected by everyone, and that’s what Joey had – respect.”
