New brake rotors for The Dragon. The old ones are WAY beyond their service life…probably should have been changed 50,000 miles ago but they remind me of a quote from Jurassic Park (I think):

“Are they heavy?”
“Then they’re expensive, put ’em back.”

Sooo…next weekend…right before I head out for a 3000 mile ride, I guess I’ll rip the front end off my bike. New rotors, new fork seals and bushings, new brake pads of course…

Let’s see:
1) Just before major road trip–check.
2) At least 100 degrees out–check.
3) No time because of work–check.

No problem. Seems a tradition nowadays…

Minor problem…with the rest of the parts…Pierre, the 26 toed polydactyl Hemingway Maine Coon absconded with the box before I could get them all out!

Gonna have to convince him to part with the rest of the parts sometime this week.

Pics of the teardown to come!
