my everyday bike does the same thing when I ride to work all the time.. there are no curves between me and work ... and it does affect the bikes ability to lean into a turn smoothly when I do go out and hit the back roads... the bike/tire fights you and then all of a sudden it drops in.. making you miss your turn in point or cause you to leave your line and screw things up.. so I would say if you are only gonna do straight miles don't worry about it... if you want to hit the curves.. BE CAREFUL!
a couple folks suggested that I do a burn out and lean the bike left to right to round the tire off but I dont' trust myself doing that with my 929... the old 89CBR 600 I could.. but not this one
I found I got the most mileage with the Bridgestone Battalax BT012 .. they have a harder compound down the center and softer on the edges.. I used these for my street tire and trackday tire when I was using my 929 for the track and they were GREAT! I have had over 5500 miles on them and they are now ready to replace due to my wear marks just showing up and was starting to get a flat area ....
If it's too good to be true... then you must be Dreaming.
