Around Laguna With Michael Czysz

There's nothing terrifying about a ride in a big white 10-passenger van, right? Well, not unless famed motorcycle racer and designer Michael Czysz is driving it around Laguna Seca. A little taste of what you may get if you take the outstanding Skip Barber Superbike School! Great school, just stay out of Michael's van.

Jason DiSalvo is in the front seat (which is why you can't see him), and he was trying to mask his terror like the rest of us. Ari Henning's dreadlocked head swings back in forth in front of my camera. Hilarity ensues as Michael keeps talking and talking as the rest of us are bounced around the interior of the van, trying not to scream or wet ourselves.

Oh, I suppose this might be helpful to those of you who might be riding or driving Laguna in the future, or even playing a video game.

Please go to the Skip Barber Website for more info about the (excellent!) Superbike school!
