    Weeeell, yer beak is supposed to act as a fender and mud deflector when things get so knarley that you have to remove the front fender. Like that is a reality for all us posers. Sort of like needing vented rotors. ;)

    My understanding is that drilling and/or grooving the rotor also gives a place for gasses, that build up under the pads during braking, a place to vent off to. Whether that's true or not, I don't know.
