Mmmm - Right Handers

My last front tyre (not sure how many miles I did on it but obviously more leaning to the right) after I came back from Bishops Castle.

The track days I did made the snotty stuff - I don't manage that on the road!

Hi Ross, Interesting pics, tyres will always wear more on the right than the left, even if you were never to go around any bend ever! This is due to the camber of the road, as it slopes down from the crown (middle of the road) to the verge. The angle varies widely, but can often be quite steep. Riders in europe suffer the opposite affect.

Note to self - go to Europe more often to get better value from tyres.
