Horrible mileage out of tires.
So I've got a 2010 VFR1200 with 4500 miles on the clock. I just got done riding through some intense 100+ degree desert heat for 400 or so miles. After my last stop for gas, my front tire looks to be about shot. Almost no tread left and it looks like the tire is starting to cup. WTF is going on?! I checked the tire pressure and I'm at about 40 psi. I am loaded down with luggage and such, but why the H is my front tire wearing so fast and my rear looks fine? I've got some mountain riding coming up and my front tire has me nervous... I was at better than 50% tire life before I left and now I'm trying to figure out if my bike needs new shoes mid trip.
