I got a new pair of all season boots too - the Dainese Fulcrum boots. It is not as nice looking as other top of the line racing boots; but for sure it is the most comfortable pair of boots I ever own. Full soft leather with protection and Gore-tex liner insider for water proofing, and fit really well with the Pro-dry pants (P Sherman Pro-Dry). The only concern is the pants is not as 'sticky' as leather.... Will post review later after the first ride - stay tunes!

Pinehurt many many times - I consider it is my 'extended backyard'. It is a B grad road - narrow, shady, and full of turns. It is not exactly a technical road; but most of the turns are blind curves and very tight, and rock and gravel always hide behind turns to surprise riders. It is still manageable for road bike - but I would stay away from it after a big storm... Regardless of road condition, a quick run on Pinehurst always put a big smile on my face =)

Did a very nice solo run today at Lake Berryessa and Lake Hennessy. Just like 3 weeks ago, the city was cold and windy (even rain this morning!); but once I hit the mountain and lake area somehow the sky just opened up - it was sunny and warm; and the rain and wind kept a lot of people away. See route here, and yeah, roads were pretty empty! =D

|Just to be fair - I took this photo at the exact same spot as my Streetfighter!|

|Lunch at Gott's Roadside... Ahi Burger!!!|
The only thing pull me back a bit was an accident - I ran into a accident scene. It wasn't pretty at all, and I really hope the rider made it through. This reminds me shit could happen any time to any of us...
