I just noticed that the rear tire on my GL1000 is cupping on the left side. I've never seen that on a bike before. Is that a indication that my swingarm bearings are toast? I tried wiggling it and couldn't move it. I never jacked it up yet though. What is causing this?

I found the answer already. :) Turns out that is normal. Surprised I've never seen it before.

Yea, it all makes sense now. I've not noticed this until now. I think it's because I accelerate real hard and wear the centers out real fast usually. This bike, not so much. Plus I just got this bike, so the PO is the person that put the wear on the tires. I've only rode it 250 miles so far. But I plan to at least double that this weekend. :) I'm going to double check the tire pressure to be sure though. Thanks for the repys!!
