    Folks,  Check elsewhere here and you will be reminded the Trophy has linked brakes.  In addition, I can see someone resting their right foot on the brake pedal slightly, or the pedal being out of adjustment, adding to rear pad wear.

    It does indeed have linked brakes, but my understanding is that it only links to a front pad when the rear brake is applied. I don't think that the rear brake is linked when the front brakes only are applied...

    In my case I should have paid more attention to my rear brake pads when I bought the bike.  I don't know what the previous owners did with the bike.  I'm sure I didn't ride the rear brake pedal.  I use the cruise control all the time and it will not work if you touch the rear brake pedal.  I also think that you would notice the brakes dragging when coasting to a stop. Somewhere along the way the rear brakes had to be dragging.   I've put a couple thousand miles on the used front rotors I installed and no more pulsing.
