Was on way back to London on my Sprint Veloce after taking shots at the Vintage Douglas Vespa Run
when I was passed by a lovely classic bike coming the other way. Thought for a second then circled roundabout I'd come to & gave chase after the bike hoping I could get some shots of it. After about 2 miles & a couple of dodgy overtakes, I caught the bike in traffic & flagged down the owner & we pulled into a bus stop. The bike was a beautiful Ducati Darmah SD900 & the owner gave me 5 mins to shoot it as he was on his way somewhere. A couple of the resulting 35mm film shots aren't bad, could've done with a bit more time but was very pleased to get some shots of such a lovely classic Ducati. All the shots I took can be seen on Motorbikes page of vespamore website www.vespamore.com
Benzina magazine has just run an article on the Ducati Darmah SD900 in current issue #4. See Benzina's website for more details or to subscribe - it's a very cool mag on classic Italian motorbikes

Not really tried panning as a technique before which is not the easiest thing to do. Basically you have to pick the spot you want to take your shot & focus correctly for your distance to subject (passing vehicle, bicycle etc). Then wait for your subject & move or pan the camera around until passing subject reaches your chosen spot & click but carry on panning the camera, following the subject. All the time the panning action should be kept as consistent & smooth as possible. Here are a few first attempts, was happy with dark green Mini....
