I agree with the OP - I know from experience that my NEXen simply aren't up to nailing focus on moving subjects whatever the shutter speed.  I often go out shooting with a friend of mine who takes motorbike shots and uses panning to capture the impression of speed. He uses a low-end Canon 600D.  I can't consistently match his results with my 5N or 7 no matter how hard I try.  I do get occasionally successful shots but they are are as much a matter of luck as skill. If I switch to his Canon I can nail shots like the OPs with no problems (though I'm familiar with Canons).

I'd be interested to see shots like this with the mixed PDAF focusing NEXen to see if they are any better, but for using the 5N, the only option is to pre-focus on a spot and hope your subject passes over it.
