Will as many people as possible take these images and edit them. You can do whatever you want. I just don't have any ideas of what I want to do to them, so I rather gets ideas from other people.

Thanks

What do you want done? The exposure looks good. The subject is soft. However, I can't tell if it's due to being out of focus or the challenge of panning to follow this quick subject. If you have a non-L lens with image stabilization, turn it off when panning. Otherwise, the camera will fight you. What you might think about in the future is to give the bike some room in front. A centered image is not aesthetically pleasing in shots of this type.

You can do whatever you want. I have no suggestions to give. I was panning with my 85 1.8. I had never panned before so I thought I would try it. I have a few more that I could load as well. They are sharper then the ones I posted, but just wanted to get ideas from other people.

This was my buddy that was learning on my bike, so he won't be doing anything to spectacular. He's probably only going 20 mph in these pictures in the first place. I would not want him to push this bike like I push it. He would definitely get himeself hurt.

A good amount of my images came out a little soft. I think it could have been from diffraction, since many of my images were at 1/80 or 125 and f/16 or f/11. I probably could have increased the shutter speed to 1/160 or 1/200, but I've never done panning before. I also just shot in JPEG instead of RAW, because the exposure was pretty much right in the sun.

I'll do better the next time I go out and pan.

I looked at your EXIF.
You were shooting at f16 at 1/30 on one and 1/80 on the others.
This is not an ideal shutter speed. You would want to go with something like 1/10 to motion blur the subject or even slower.
I would like to see a sharp subject against a motion blurred background. Jump the shutter speed up a bit.
In the future I would suggest shooting at a variety of shutter speeds so that you can later decide which you like best. Don't really think the shots are worth the time editing.
You should also try having hime ride at a much higher speed at a higher shutter speed. That way you can get the crisp bike with the blurred background more easily. Make sure the background features are a fair distance behind him.

I'll rummage through my other images tonight and get the sharper ones.

My buddy was only learning, hence the slow speeds in a bigger parking lot. He's only ridden a bike twice and I've been riding for over a year. If the riders were switched, then I could bump the shutter more. I'll experiment more the next time with 1/160 or even 1/200 and just see what comes out.

This was my first time and they came out ok. I know they aren't good by any means, but I had never done panning before. It was a fun day though.

Do a bit of math to figure out how far the bike will move at a given speed and shutter speed. It is amazing.
At horse shows, I usually shoot at 1/800th or faster but I'm using a long lens and this freezes the background as well as the horse.

I just didn't know what to do, because I don't trust my buddy to be riding MY BIKE "recklessly." If he was riding his own bike then I wouldn't care, but I'm letting him learn on my bike.

If you have any other pointers, keep them coming. I've thought about getting the 70-200 f/4 non IS so I can be a little more comfortable when he was to come around. Right now, I'm just going to see what my 85 1.8 can do for me.

Keep the comments coming, because it will only make me better. I'll tell him not to wear a tshirt next time, because the shade obviously turned the white areas a little more blue.

There were some of the better ones I could find. Looks like I'm going to have to give this a better go next time. Probably would help if I either bring my tripod or increase the shutter speed. I'll have to experiment more next time. Anyways, keep the suggestions coming.

You could try an "out of bounds" type of edit.
