Any one give me an idea of what kind of mileage we will get out of brake pads for this bike

 :005:Wow, cropbiker!  What do you normally use to stop, a parachute?  :745: :745: :745: :745:

I've done 14,000 miles and have had two new sets.   What am I doing wrong?

Managed to get to 18,000 before changing mine, still had a few more miles left on the back, but got them all done at the same time.

I guess it is all down to riding styles. I know I ride in a very relaxed fashion. The Trophy for me is a Grand Tourer and I ride ina fashion that anticipates the need to slow down with enough time to back off the throttle and let engine braking do the job.

Not everyone's style I know. You obviously ride more like you stole it and also being in a big city may have an impact.

I got about 12000 miles out of my first set.  Still working on my second.
