Nice images Rexer1200. I particularly like the second one though I would have preferred a crop that didn't place the front wheel so close to the edge of the image. A little more space on the left would give the impression that he had somewhere to go rather than leaving the viewer imagining a brick wall just out of view.

Great shots Rexar, really like the first one, though I think it could do with a little more contrast to make it 'pop'

#2 is like most motorcycle racing shots out there but #1 is amazing! I feel like i just got punched in the gut when I look at this image. This is a very impressive shot. The only thing I might do different would be to zoom in further. Though I'm not sure if that was possible in your case. I'd love to see what this looks like from the front of the bike as well.
