Buying New Brake Pads and Shoes

When purchasing new brakes for front and rear, am I correct in assuming I would need to purchase TWO of the following - one for each side:

and ONE of the following:

Thanks!

Yes, I think you have it figured out right. I have noticed on Ebay that they always specify that for the VN750 you need 2 sets of the front brake pads. I think they sell them this way because some bike models only have one front brake rotor, hence only need one set of brake pads.

Correct. Each package is for a single disc.

new brakes all around and new back tire for me before we head your way in a couple weeks.

Mom, I'm not wearing my helmet only for the purpose of taking this picture and
the background was digitally blurred to make it look like I'm going really fast.
