Biker Advanced Recon Commandos, also referred to as BARC troopers, were specialized clone troopers of the Grand Army of the Republic, trained to ride BARC speeders across difficult terrain or dangerous battlegrounds. BARC troopers were equipped with modified clone trooper armor that directed their attention forward to avoid distractions, which could be dangerous to them at high speeds. During the final days of the Clone Wars, a platoon of BARC troopers under the command of Jedi General Stass Allie and Clone Commander Neyo were present on the planet Saleucami. Whilst out on a speeder bike patrol, Neyo was issued Order 66 by the Supreme Chancellor of the Galactic Republic, Sheev Palpatine, which forced him to open fire on his superior. As a result Allie, like most of the other Jedi across the galaxy, was killed by the troops who had fought side by side with her during the war.
By the year 19 BBY, a platoon of BARC troopers in the 91st Mobile Reconnaissance Corps were stationed on Saleucami during the Outer Rim Sieges of the Clone Wars. Whilst riding across the planet's terrain on a BARC speeder, Clone Commander Neyo was issued Order 66 by Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine of the Galactic Republic. Forced to comply as a result of their control chips,[source?] he and a wingman opened fire on Jedi General Stass Allie's speeder, destroying the vehicle and killing the Jedi.
