After only a 10 mi. trip I was back at home, did other things for 15 minutes and decided to check my tire pressure. Well, I kneeled down and for some reason decided to grab the front disc and HOLY MOTHER OF GOD it was hot, like I can't hold it for any length of time hot.

I can only imagine how hot that disc would be immediately after stopping, and especially after using the brakes hard in fast city traffic.

I never felt the rear but will next time I go out. I have a HF infrared remote thermometer I plan to use to check the temps after I come in.

BTW, my little Honda 125 never has hot discs after the same type riding. Warm yes, sizzling, no.

Or air in the lines. As it heats up air expands.

Not quite sure how this could be relevant. If there was any air in the lines the front brakes would not work at all and therefore the discs would remain at ambient.
