Getting new front pads soon, EBC HHs...anyone here have a proven brake pad bedding method that they would like to share?  EBC says 300 miles of city/urban driving to get the new pads to conform to the used rotors, then x number of runs from x mph to a near stop, blah, blah blah...I'm looking for a method that will eliminate the 300 miles of city driving before I can really use the brakes...

No modification goes unpunished. Memento mori.  Good people drink good beer.  Things happen pretty fast at high speeds.

It's all up to your will level, your thrill level and your skill level.  Everything else is just fluff.

I've some of those on the front; they're really different compared to stock.  Have you had them before?

At first i didnt like them because they didnt seem to have as much 'feel' (?) as the old ones. But they have a good bite even with just two fingers touching pretty lightly. I like 'em now that im used to them.

I only replaced the ones on Edgar once so far. I did it just like I've always done my cars. 3 or 4 times of  up to 60 and throw out the anchor. Worked for me so far.

I did as MD suggested, rode normal and didn't sweat it...the pads have been fully bedded in for some time now and I'm just as comfortable with them as I was with the stockers...great pads at a fraction of the cost of the stock pads.
