Ditto. When I was using the Street Perf pads that came with my StopTech BBK, I followed StopTech's bedding (or "burnishing") procedure as described on their website, which is slightly less aggressive and uses 8-10 successive 60-->5mph stops, followed by a cruise/cool-down. When I switched to the Pagids, I changed the procedure to the Pagid recommendation that you guys are describing. I'm assuming the higher speeds/more aggressive bedding for the Pagids is necessary because their ideal operating temp is higher than that of the more street-oriented StopTech pads.
