Unusual Tire Wear

I've had this tire wear for weeks. I sometimes see it a few times a year but I've never had it last this long. What gives??

Bridgestone T31 at proper pressure. Same issue on the front.

Hmm that's a likely possibility. You think a big multi-day ride would help?

Might have to drive my car until I can figure this one out.

That's what I was thinking but this bike has 100 more HP than my RC390 with normal looking tire wear. I'll continue diving into this. Thanks for all the suggestions.

Before these I was on the T30 EVO and got 15k miles out of the front and roughly 7,500 average on the rear (two rears). I am no longer commuting with my Tiger so not sure what these T31's will do but I am expecting similar results.

I have a prediction about what is going to happen to that tire...

Let's circle back in here around, say...Dec. 3rd?
