In Australia the crown or high side of the road is to the right of the bike .My Question is ,is it normal to have more wear on the right side edge of rear tyre or do I have some sort of alinement problem.In USA my guess it would be the left side.Tyre is Khumo195 rf.

my front tires wear more on the left side. i use a car tire on the rear and i see no difference from side to side on the rear.
someone posted a long discourse once that said the crown of the road did NOT cause the left side to wear more; i'm not totally convinced that it does not at least contribute to some wear.

To expound on the article ronab is talking about. I think the point of the article was that when we, here in U.S. make a left hand curve we are leaned over longer than in a right hand curve. Therefore more miles are put on the tire while leaned left. In your case it would be just the opposite. Whether it is true or not, who knows.

My Kuhmo, driven 19,000 miles in US and Canada, wore more on the left edge.
