v-strom front tire wear

any ideas? my front stock tire on my 650 is developing a bit of a wierd wear pattern. pressure is ok and settings are still factory set. any ideas? other than that this bike is a blast. not a racer but it can keep up pretty damn well with the others.

pick it up, dust it off, don't look back, GOOOOOOOOOOO!

fighting for peace is like screw1ng for virg1nity

No idea of said pattern, but if sort of lippy in the central part, or you can called it "scalloped"------that is a sign of a lot of use with the front brakes which is acceptable, though it is a sign of normal wear.

Basically your rear should have to be replaced, due to wear, & later on it will be the front.

Remember all the others on the road are crazy & out to kill you.
