Front tire wear P200e

The front tire on my P200e appears to be wearing more on the left than in the center or on the right. Is this typical? If not, is there some clue I should look for as to the reason?

Thanks.

I am thinking about putting a buzzer into the circuit to help me remember. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn...

Re: Crank won’t turn when flywheel nut is tightened.

If you know someone with a large enough metal lathe they might - I say MIGHT - be able to shave enough off the binding areas that the flywheel would then fit properly.

Piaggio MP3

Anyone have/had one of these three wheel leaning scooters from the maker of Vespa? https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180902/e630858aaa2c2587009211fe32db2048.png If so, please write about your experiences, likes, and dislikes.

Annual gatherings

Statesiders (and likely many others) are probably familiar with the huge motorcycle rally held annually at Sturgis SD. http://sturgismotorcyclerally.com/ My daughter and son-in-law brought me a shirt from the 2015 event, which I wore to a concert yesterday. The lady next to me asked if I had been. W...
