- MotoUSA heads off to the Skip Barber Superbike School powered by KTM.
- Having some fun with the KTM RC8 coming out of Turn 2 at Laguna Seca.
- Following lead instructor Jeff Haney through the famous corkscrew.
- Having the correct body position is one of the school's main points.
- After two days of training from the Skip Barber crew my body position was helped greatly.
- Instructor Michael Czysz displays these body position teachings off-track for all the students to see.
- Everyone in the class gave learning 100% effort. This sure doesn't feel like High School at all...
- Here's my best off-track try at the body position drill.
- Haney uses his opposite hand to control the bike as he shows the correct line with his inside hand. Impressive to see the speed and lean angle at which he can do this.
- Giving my best to perfect the cornering and braking cone drill.
- Full tuck down the front straight. This is the easy part...
- Follow the leader is the name of the game for several sessions.
- The corkscrew is one of the most fun and challenging areas of Laguna Seca.
- Following instructor Haney down the corkscrew.
- 2009 KTM RC8
- Jeff Haney and Michael Czysz give the class instruction before taking to the track.
- Having a look at ourselves after one of the follow-the-leader sessions. The ability to see yourself and be given pointers right after the session is a huge help.
- The school has a fleet of KTM RC8s for students, as well as several Super Dukes and 690 Dukes.
