I'm in sorta the same boat as @Olde Phart , no rain but haven't had mine out since our BDR ride. I will check when I get her all serviced and cleaned up. I too was wondering if you had the park brake (DCT). Really the nature of a caliper without any sort of return springs, like drum brakes, these pads you can assume will ever so lightly touch the rotor with no force until braking is applied. My feeling is if you can touch them with your bare hands like you say, should be golden. If they burn you or make water/spit sizzle, yep, too damn hot for a little rip without use. Just my thoughts. Anyways, hopefully somebody else can check real quick for ya. I'm about a week out.
