But I also noticed I'm developing a bit of a chicken strip too. Don't know if that's having an effect. My daily commute is 50 miles of straight flat road. Need to find some curves... Lol.

If you are still running the original tire then it's probably time for a new one. I have over 12,000 miles on mine and noticing the same thing you described above.

Never a problem when tire was new, but mine is definitely worn and needing replaced.

The tire was replaced with factory Dunlop a couple months ago. Got around 4000 miles on it. Still a lot of tread to the wear indicator.

I've pushed mine pretty far down into corners, but I also put a fair amount of weight on the contact patch at 300lbs. Try playing with the preload on the shock to help with weight transfer. And of course, check tire pressure.
