    Now that you mentioned that they are looking at you, these are actually comical! Very good shots though! Maybe you just need a longer lense to keep you safe!

    they look good, but there usually are some safety precautions that are worth taking

    Those are really good shots. How do you guys get these in motion shots so clear and get them to stop so well?

    Awesome set. #4 is my favourite, on the red honda. Such an intense shot with the heat disapating from the exhaust.

    beautiful shots!
    I'm not to keen on the vignetting on the last one from the second pic-post, that's the only "critique" I could give ;)

    I'd drag the shutter a little bit to get some motion behind the riders. You can still get a clear picture with the right panning technique. Other than that, they are pretty good.

    Buona mattina da Melbourne....

    Because I am not very experienced at the panning, I preferred to use a slaightly faster shutter speed, ie between 1/800 and 1/1250 sec. I could have used slower, but then not guaranteed of sharpest fotos. I mostly used f/2.8 - f/4 which gave me good depth of field on my EF400 f/2.8 lens. Also it's very hard to pan using monopod which I have to use because this lens is very heavy.... and I cannot hand hold.
    The 1D MkII N also can do 8.5 frames per sec which is guaranteed good shots everytime even with rubbish opertor like me ;-)

    CIAO....

    I dont like panning unless its necesarry (normally with cars), with motorcycles on a track sideways, you can tell there is motion... Unlike a car

    Edit: I mean panning to produce background motion blur
