I just got back from this event that was held today, it's the biggest motorbike event in our state, held each year.

These were all taken with my Canon rebel with the 100-300 usm lens. F8, ISO 800, 2000s

Thanks for the comments guys, it took me the first 50 photos to work out the right settings, I was getting quite frustrated with it before that but Im reasonably happy with what i ended up getting.

Thanks bullen, not sure about natural but I sure got some funny looks from those people using tripods:-), I hand hold all my action shots, animal or machinery
