Oh man. I don't know how good I am at the speed blur, but I love it and I try:
I think you have the hang of it Chris. It's one of my 'things' too.
There are two stock in trade shots for bike magazine work.
The chase/follow vehicle.
As with all examples it's a case of shoot as slow as you can yet still keep the subject in focus. I usually bang off a few at 1/125 to get some solid shots in the bank, the slow it down from there - if they turn out fuzzy when you download them you always have the solid ones to fall back on.
It yeilds lovely wheel spin and the movement is in the road and immediate background.
This was taken from another side car
Then there is the classic panning shot.
Again it's a slow as you can and keep in focus. With practice you can slow it down quite a lot. Hit the motor drive/burst option too.
Getting further away and using a longer lens helps too.

I'll post up some Fixed camera shots and Moving camera shots later.
Yea, I rarely shoot shutter-priority...but, when I do, I like it...LOL I was shooting with a star filter as well so the bright sun hitting some chrome was fun...
Taking inappropriate machinery to the track.🤣

Somebody took this of me and I suspect there was some Photoshopping going on. I do drive the Ural on two wheels tho.
Yeah - the trick is to clear cut the subject, paste it into a new layer, fill the hole in the first layer with the clone brush using the areas surrounding the hole, then add the motion blur filter.
There is also a good trick to add dof using gradient fills that I'll tell ya about some time.
Or just shoot it right :-)
Latest set for Heavy Duty Magazine:
That was an epic photo shoot where we even got in trouble with a park ranger, who pulled us over and let us know who was the boss 🤣.
Actually ranger asked if we had a permit to photograph in that area since it looked like we were doing a professional photo shoot for a magazine cover. We explained that we were just amateurs trying really hard to look pro and no one is paying us anything. That was the truth and the park ranger let us go.
Made for a good story.
