I like to get the most out of my brake pads
A look back at this blog (it had to be useful for something) tells me I first started mentioning that I needed rear brake pads at 6,000 miles. Finally got them at 22,000 miles so it’s amazing how you can stretch things out when you need to.
I have no recollection of this, but it says here https://sawthingsclearer.com/2015/09/12/tiger-at-7000-miles/ that I changed one of the pads after Triumph sold me the wrong pair (one pad still fitted). This would be the pad on the right in the image above. Looks like it was a good call.
