Brilliant action shot Brian and something very different from you. You are a very versatile photographer smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Frances. For many years in the 60's and early 70's most of the photography I done was motorcycle sport, I was quite heavily involved with the sport for several years and still have several thousand slides and monochrome negatives.

You have not lost your ability to capture the motion, Brian...love it!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray, although most circuits these days have great high fences round which ruins photography, there is only this one spot on this circuit without a fence hence most in this series will look much about the same.
nice motion blur here Brian. very well framed
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ayush.
Terrific shot, Brian! You should send this to him!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth. These guys at the top of the game see so many photos of themselves mine would just be one among thousands, there was a lot of us at this same spot taking pictures, no doubt they all look similar.

I can just see you on one of these Brian!
Brian Walbey: Perhaps when I was a decade or two younger Chris. The biggest bike I ever has was a 200cc.one, these things do upwards of 200mph., no thanks!

So, did the Daniel Craig actor take this biker as his namesake???
Brian Walbey: I doubt that Ginnie, at least this guy does the brave bits for real, not just pretend.

My son is born in august 1988. I am more than happy that he does NOT have a motorcycle......
Great shot though, and a big achievement, I hope it does not kill him in the end.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Astrid, my parents hated me having a motorcycle, even though it was a small one. I got rid of it after a couple of years when a close friend was sadly killed in a road accident not of his own making. (BTW in June, 1966 I travelled to the Dutch TT circuit at Assen for the motorcycle grand prix that year, staying in Groningen for the night and then on to Amsterdam for a few days. You would only have been a young girl at that time I guess.)
great action mode
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chantal.

You definitely 'Think Bike' don't you Brian
Brian Walbey: Anything bike beats any sport whatsoever that involves the use of a ball of bat as far as I'm concerned Richard, but I do think the "Think Bike" warnings on our roads are a good thing, hopefully they get taken notice of.
You still know how to take bike shots Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill. Actually with auto-focus I don't find it quite as easy as the old manual focus film cameras, but I rarely go to see bikes these days so am well out of practice, plus because of Formula 1 (yawn) most circuits have big tall fences all the way round nowadays which doesn't help photography.

You have captured this well Brian, I expect he would like to have this image of himself.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Cahd. These guys at the top of the game see so many photos of themselves mine would just be one among thousands, there was a lot of us at this same spot taking pictures, no doubt they all look similar.
Very good action shot.
Brian Walbey: Thanks David.
Excellent capture Brian. You know my passion for bikes!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard. Best sport in the world as far as I'm concerned, I just don't go for sports involving bats and balls at all.

Terrific action shot
Brian Walbey: Thanks Aussie.
Excellent action shot, Brian. It's perfect.
Brian Walbey: Thanka very much.

In German I would say: You must have been "ein toller Hecht" while sitting on this superbike - I can feel the speed and noise of this supermachine - ein tolles Photo!
Brian Walbey: I think I get your meaning Philine, I love motorcycle racing but would never had had the courage to ride one of these, they are generally capable of about 320 kilometers per hour!
A great crisp image Brian. Fine capture
Brian Walbey: Thanks Janet.
A fantastic action shot of this Superbike rider, Brian. A wonderful start to your series.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Beverly, a favourite subject of mine from times past, I don't get to many events these days.

And I thought your favourite sport was train spotting ;o) A fine action shot Brian; track and shoot to perfection.
Brian Walbey: It was trains and then motorcycle racing took over for many years once I left school, indeed for 15 seasons I used to commentate at meetings, mainly Snetterton in Norfolk, and then children came along and my interest in trains has been rekindled, with the odd bike meeting thrown in every so often.
Very well captured Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much John.
Great shot, Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Tom.
Good shot,Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Frank.
This is great Brian, I have to admit that I follow F-1 more than the motorbikes in spite of the Spanish riders' domination...smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Juan, I also follow F-1 but motorcycles are my #1 interest. Spain had a 1-2-3 in MotoGP at the weekend, again!!!!

Plenty of feeling of speed in this, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Yes with the blurred wheels it helps to portray the speed.
