I conceived this shot over on Saturday morning after I got frustrated that the Noreaster that was slamming us prevented me from taking my bike out for the first time this season. The concept was an image of me on my bike getting chased by a random car in a tunnel and having no choice but to go full throttle to get away.
For starters, I have to admit that my bike is definitely not the fastest in the world. It's just a 2007 Suzuki GS500F but hey, I just started riding around a year ago so I'm just working on upping my riding skills first. Anyhow, I spent a little over two hours to set everything up and get this shot the way I wanted since I had to everything by myself. I am the "model", photographer, assistant all in one...haha.
Here's the shot...

No, this is not a rig shot. I wasn't even moving. In fact, here's the setup shot. I added the motion blur for the ground in post:
I've shared this with my other rider friends to get their feedback and I got a pretty unanimous thumbs up so I figure I'd share it here too.
