I have noticed a ridge all around the edge of my rear disc, like the pads don't go all the way to the edge when brake is pressed. It is the original with 183,000 miles. I am looking for a new one that will fit that someone had their bike triked. Does anyone know what is the newest year model rear rotor that will fit my 08.

That ridge is normal and the minimum specs is noted on the disk itself. Just mic the worn area and see if it is thinner than spec (probably is). I changed one out for a friend one time that was way below spec and he was worried about it breaking. He was at about that mileage. Rear disks are easy to come by. I usually get them when I buy trike takeoffs.

John, you seem to do an amazing amount of riding. Do you ride through most of the time, or do overnight stops? Glad you could make it to the Tom Finch event. How's he doin'?

Knew you were a long rider, just didn't realize how long. Knew you had a couple mishaps, but to your credit, you get right back in the saddle and ride again. Too bad about Tom...He is one of the good guys.

Marvin, there is a trike shop near Livingston, only 50 to 60 miles from me. I've never stopped, but if you'd like I will check to see what they have. If they have what you need I'll get it and bring it to you when I go to San Antonio next time.
