The pan speed looks OK but I dont think the issue is motion blur on the subject, looks more like OOF, but I could be mistaken. The cyclist is too centered in the frame, over all the image is far too soft to be usable. Try What John suggested and start with higher shutter speeds, what focus mode were you using?

I was using manual focus Justin. I dont think its OOF so much as the wrong shutter speed. I went for too slow a speed which gave me a nice streaky background, but allowed for movement of the subject. I have to pay attention to what the right speed should be to get the streaks as well as sharper image.

I dont think maual focus is going to do to well on a moving target. The reason I am leaning toward OOF is I see no motion streaks in the subject at all. If it were me shooting with a Canon I would be using AI servo focus and it it were on a lens with IS it would be on in mode 2. Starting with faster shutter speeds and working your way down will certainly help to perfect it.

I used manual focus because I knew where he was going to be. So I focus on that spot and when I pan with him I shoot when he reaches the stop right in front of me and I carry through with panning. We have a few more days of summer yet to go. I will get him out and try it again.

Bynx, trial and error is often the best approach. Soliciting advise is good to get a general grasp but no one is going to be standing beside you and there is no better teacher than practice and the process of elimination.

Taking into account how you have done this I feel you have done very well. With the processing skills you have I have no doubt you could have taken a still image of your Son on the bike and made a very creative image giving the effect of him cycling. I commend you for trying the old way.
