More to come, I just got home from the event, what a funny thing to see. Guys in full leathers laying out their scooters.

This is funny for sure. I'm not sure about grown-ups racing on teenager's bikes! Your pictures are fine. I prefer the first ones though. They sim to have better compostition and show more thinking into them.
Have a nice day.

Thanks for the comments!! I was trying different things, in retrospect the pans need a little lower shutter speed to blur the background more.

re-evaluation: the first shot of your last series is as good as the very first ones as far as i can tell. So i guess you are as good at left turns as at right turns!

Thanks guys! I couldn't stop laughing when they would rip past. I have no idea how fast these things go. I had to restrain myself from saying something that may be considered offensive to someone that is racing in the scooter nationals, like "This is the funniest thing I have ever seen"

They let me in for free since I was "there to promote scootering" (that is what the guy said when he saw my camera)

The funny thing was how serious this is. They run a racing fuel, some have that two stroke oil that smells sweet (I can't remember what it is called)

CRAZY!!

That is just plain AWESOME!

How funny, and yet what a great idea. It's more approachable for the common person.

Have you ever seen lawnmower racing?

Has any of you shot it?

I have heard of lawnmower racing, though I have never seen it. These guys have a website too, I forgot to post it. Take a look www.scooterworldmag.com

I told them since they let me in free I would let them use some shots, now that is a portfolio booster

Hey I used to have that same Vespa- A 78 P200. Those things are the Harley Davidson's of the scooter world. Itallian hand crafted. So much fun.

HaHa These are awesome! Tire warmers !?!? Wow, yup that's some serious scootering. Remember, racing is racing. It's better to ride a slow bike fast than a fast bike slow.

Thanks for the shots, nice job.

I used to race with these things here in California. I rode a xr100 dirt bike with street tires and full leathers. Yes it looked funny but the racing was great. Racing is racing! I will try to post some pics of these too.

Jerry, POST AWAY.. I for one would love to see more of these shots.

URAmeatball- that sounds right, though I can't remember. I only heard the name for the first time at the Xgames in Aspen this year...

My roommate took a look at that last shot and asked me if I photoshopped the visor. I looked at it again and it is quite cool, though no photoshop. I didn't even crop any of these...I love this camera!

This just reinforces my theory that if it has an engine, someone will race it...
