The rotors are Galfers. I had Woody make me a second set of wheels so I use the 19 front (with Galfers) and 17 rear (with stock rotor) for street; and my 21 front (with stock rotor) and 18 rear (with Galfer) for the dirt. Like Motorfiets I got tired of smoking through knobbies when I wasnt riding dirt.
I never really had significant problems with the stock rotors, but the twin Galfers on the 19 are indeed sweet and they work extremely well.
I like the road setup enough that for the first time I'm thinking about trips that dont involve dirt. This of coarse might be a bad thing, because we all know that if you only ride pavement on your GS then you have to give up your man card. [/QUOTE]

Yeah, that's right. I wish some of the "hardcore" riders I know could read this. And we don't even have a Starbucks here in my hometown...

Anyways, I'll have my stock front rotors replaced by new ones under warranty. Thing is they are "more loose" than they should. Even the BMW guy agreed.

Let's wait to see the results.

And thanks again. That "man's card" shit was really funny. Cheers.
