But panning is a skill that can be acquired, but it should be remembered that having "mastered it" for the speed of one subject does not guarantee success on another subject, but it does give you a considerable advantage over someone still trying to perfect any panning shot.

Totally agree, I still (after many, many eons, well seems like that) take quite a while to get into the 'swing' for slower moving subjects.

Yes, I am left handed, but with the cycling I'm usually on the opposite side of the road, so my subject normally comes left to right anyway. I do occasionally pan the opposite way with a wide angle with the rider on the same side of the road. But do find left to right easier. Which would explain why I found standing in the centre of the velodrome trickier than the outside, as it's the opposite way to normal.
