    I've always found EBC HH sintered pads to work well on my Bird

    EBC HH or OEM Honda Pads. I've used plenty of both and either option will work well (no matter how you ride).
    Spiral out, keep going...

    We used OEM when we were racing. And we got a few championships with them. I'd go oem...

    Holy fuck, CAD's back.

    On a road bike? A nice HH Ferodo/EBC/Daytona, any brand really as it's unlikely you'll notice a performance difference and can go by budget and availability. Or go Brembo or OEM if you want to get bent over on price.
    Trying to think of a wise and sincere signature quote, but the only words that leap to mind are, "TITTY SPRINKLES"

    I run Brembo as they are now cheaper than Glafer.
    For a road ridden bike I recon any except no brand Chinese would be fine
