Personally I'd love to do this for a living.
Does anyone know if these are good enough to maybe consider making a living out of this? Shooting bikes is really a passion of mine.
Are there any pros here that may point me in the right direction?

Thanks again for the comments.

I share the passion for motorcycles. I ride them and photograph them constantly, I know my heart rate increases when ever I get around a nice bike.

But my friend, trying to make a living shooting motorcycle races is very tough. I don't want to discourage you. There is no substitue for good glass and you will need them all, 600-400-300 mm for sure. Canon (I feel) makes the best cameras for shooting action.

The bigger the event you attend the more restrictive security becomes, you can't stand here, you can't do that!
There seems no end to it. Shooting a small track with a riding class is no big deal, you can lay beside the track if you want.

Then you have to produce a better product then the other twenty photographers standing at the same corner your at. Your best shot is to shoot for a magazine instead of free-lancing it. The cost of traveling all over the U.S. can be alot.

Make a portfolio with your best stuff and seak out the smaller publications (near your home) and submit it. Don't forget the net either. You have to start somewhere.

Best of luck.
