Michelin scalloping on the front tyre

I noticed that the front tyre on my Breva was scalloping on the right-hand-side.  I think that there’s about 10,000km on the Michelin Pilot Road 4s.  It never occurred on the Road 3s that I had used previously.  A search on Google revealed quite a few complaints from riders of heavy bikes, such as Yamaha FJRs.


I had a chat to Clint at Morrison Moto Garage.  He said it was common and it was unlikely to be my suspension.  So, I swapped it over for a Pirelli Demon.  I’ll see how that goes.  The rear still has a bit of life left so I’ll replace it with a Pirelli later this year.
