I had a buddy take his 09 Ultra in for some service, and the tech noticed his front tire (which had 10,000 miles) and said do you want me to change out your front tire. It's at no cost to you its a recall on the stock front tires. The tread was causing the wear to be on one side more than the other. I took my bike in two days ago (2009 Road Glide) Got a brand new tire on it too. Just wanted to pass that along.
