I had the Swing's brake pads checked, and to my surprise the handbrake pads needed replacement!  How is this ware and tear even possible?Handbrake Pads Handbr10

You've most likely left the hand brake partially on at some stage when riding, that's all I can think of.

Betcha Dollars to Donuts you won’t find a difference between your “worn” pads and the new pads. At best the new pads are only a couple of mm thick. My 2¢

When you're buying a used Silver Wing, over the years at least one previous owner will have accidentally ridden off with the parking brake on for a few hundred yards before realising their mistake. It's already been mentioned that the brake pad material is minimal compared to the ones fitted to the front and rear disc brakes.

As the parking brake isn't used for normal braking or rarely used at all, worn brake pads are likely to be forgotten about or ignored.

Not much anyway. Thin to begin with.

I use parking brake quit often slope out of garage or other places.
