Thanks for the reply. A few nights ago I was reading where you can buy 
euro A8 slotted rotors for what seemed like a really good deal (not much 
over $100....but the actual price I've forgotten). I suppose if one 
picked up a spare set of rotors that they would likely be set for some 
time to come.

I'm pretty sure I found that information on the bira site though. 
However, last night I couldn't seem to find it again.
