hmm... yeah, typically, if there's a warped rotor, at slow speeds, the brakes will give you a "tss tss tss tss tss" sound, and the wheel will kind of drag a little bit in that spot.. until you stop.
(btw, if your brakes do that without being engaged, that's a problem)
if that's the case though, when you really get on the brakes, especially at a higher speed.. say, 80... it would buck you back and forth like a bull....
well ok.. that's a little extreme.. but yeah.. you'd feel it a lot more..
The same symptoms happen in a car... so if you've ever had bad disks on a car, it's the same thing.. only.... more stable since you have 4 corners connected.
you may not have a warped rotor per say, you may just... need to get it turned..
I don't know if they can turn motorcycle rotors though. i would assume so, but no idea who would do it. (motorcycle shop i assume... maybe dealership).
honestly, it's hard for me to judge what the problem is, because i'm not on the bike to know.
it may be that your brakes are too tight.. especially if their engaging / scraping without touching the pedal / lever..
not really sure... either way, if you figure it out, let us know.. i'm curious to know the fix.
As for the weather, I keep forgetting its winter... it's been in the 50's all week here until today... it's high 30's, was in the teens last night.. my part of Texas hasn't seen more than 1mm of snow.. other parts have had blizzards though.. north of here.
its JUST NOW getting to the "cold part of the year" for us. and it'll be over by the end of Feb.. back up to 70's 80's, but lots of rain probably. it HAs gotten cold.. it just, doesn't stick around for long.
But, our weather is nowhere near as nice as FL or CA. "Riding season? What's That?? Every day's riding season"
