It is awesome to hear you were able to ride it and enjoy it for that many miles in a year. I salute you and envy that myself. I have 8500 miles in a turbulent first year but all is working out as time allows.
We will have to hook up and meet sometime when possible and share some horror stories........
I went out on a charity run today and we got caught in a monsoon of a rain storm....A friend of mine was ridding the dog when it hit and it was good to see it from behind and see how it looked going down the road. Throwing a rooster tail up for days.
I will take a pic of my rear rotor and show you how it wore when my rear pad went south. I have got a set of LRB pads to put on both wheels after the replacement one wears down on the back. Seems the rear pads have been replaced once already at one of the services or when it went to Kansas for some needed service. I will have to look closely at what is going on back there. Something is happening to have two sets go out in 8500 miles. The front look real good. I typically use the front pretty heavy when breaking along with the rear. I wonder if the mass of the 300 and rim causes this much wear on the rear pads?
