yeah, but your riding in dirt!!!! I've had my G/S shoes relined with a softer material, but haven't put them on yet. That being said with the current EBC shoes I can lock it up in dirt and on pavement with lots of pressure on the lever. Wish it was less though. I do have a slight grove in the drum from the stock shoes (100,000 miles).
I wanted to get rid of the BMW shoes because of the reports and didn't want to wear out the unobtainable hub.
