Brake Pad Life?
I was just curious about what everyone else was getting mileage wise out of their brake pads? Mine seem to be holding up well (at least half normal thickness) but I am planning on taking another trip to the mountains (Gap, Skyway) soon and I am concerned about how much pad a few days of aggressive two up mountain riding will use up.
The brakes still work perfectly outside of an occasional squeak, but I don't want to be 600 miles from my garage and have the pads start chewing up a rotor.....and after hearing about two of my H-D friends having to but new brakes on their Street Glides every 2500-3500 miles......it really made me curious as to how many highway miles a normal LT gets out of it's pads.
