PR2s being a wonderful tire do NOT do that! My OEM tires were not very confidence inspiring especially when they were getting worn down! The PR2s on the other hand (after breakin of course) are leaps beyond the OEM tires!
Thanks for the info, achesley and tazman2 - apparently your experiences show the odd wear pattern on the front tire is a characteristic of the bike and there isn't a fix for it. I was going to try the additional pressure as you did, achesley, I guess there is no point in that now. I know the OEM tires felt just as you said once they wore that way - when you came off the center it felt slick as all. The last 500 miles of them were NOT fun. So, I'll live with it. Appreciate very much the wisdom of your experience.
