Overdue blog update

Wow, what a bad year for blog posts. It has been one of the busiest years in a long time for me so I guess this is my excuse. I do have a ton of pictures and stories from a couple of road-trips out west. Each place deserves its own post so before I got started, I felt it was good time to reevaluate John’sOcean s as blog.

Stay tuned, have some good ideas for out west places to visit – in a truck or van.
Best – John

April Laguna Seca Track Day

After not riding much last year I couldn’t resist signing up for a few days this spring with Keigwins at Laguna Seca Raceway. The weather was awesome and the track super grippy.

Thanks to Rick for capturing some video from an afternoon session. I’m on the green bike in front starting at the 3:30 mark for a few laps. I was averaging 2:03 lap times on my Kawasaki ZX-10R.

The Wild West

2,800 miles in eight days. Nevada, Utah, Arizona. Turned off the radio after the first day for the remaining seven days of driving because it was just such an incredible, Mars like landscape you just wanted to look out the window in silence – for hours and hours and hours of noisy, bumpy, scary at times, desert adventuring. And really hot. Loved every minute.

X2Engine About Video

In preparation for an upcoming X2Engine software release in two weeks, Richard, Tony and I headed up the coast a few miles to make a short “About X2Engine” video. The idea was to hopefully capture both the spirit of X2Engine the software company but also our beautiful local Santa Cruz surroundings. Its a limited time, low budget, GoPro video project but I think it turned out alright.
