Brakes on a Voyager.

How many miles has everyone been getting on brake pads? I have 19000 on mine and they are wore way down. The front is starting to growl pretty good.

40,000 and still have the OEM pads. There are very few stops where I ride and I ride "the pace" so I don't do a lot of braking for the curves.

Sold my 2000 GMC truck with 180,000 miles and it had 50% of the pad left on the OEM brakes.

This is one of those things like tires and MPG. Can vary greatly depending on how and where you ride. Dofferent bike, but I had 80k on my rear brake on my 800b before I changed it, dram brake. I only changed it then hoping to get a better brake, ended up being a stuck cable.
