The photo of the shredded tire on the front of the Silverwing proves that the front tire's do wear on the road high side of the front tread.

Since most roads are built with the center higher than the shoulders, this puts more wear on the left side of the front tire. Compensating for the front tire wanting to descend toward the low side of the road also causes more wear and friction to the left side of the tire as evidenced by this photo.

This has been a point of disagreement by Riders for years, This photo settles that Argument.

Happy Motoring Lloyd 193. swing

Rattlebars used to have a great page on motorcycle tire wear. They said that the increased wear on the left side of the tire is because when we turn left at intersections we lean the bike more and go faster and further than we do in right turns. That makes sense since right turns are tighter and sharper than the wider swing one does turning left. Also the most front tire wear on the sides of bike tire treads is caused by the effort of pulling the bike around a turn. Thats the main reason the front tire is usually the one that wears out faster than the rear. If you have front tire with much more wear on the left side than the right, lay a straight edge across that area and check the angle of that to the wheel. You'll find it's a much larger angle than the usual four or five degrees of camber of a normal road way. Also if it was wear from the road camber you'd get similar wear on the rear tire. That doesn't usually happen, if you wear a rear tire to the cord you'd see it exposed down the center of the tread.
