Good to hear.
I think maybe you got your "on the center stand & on the wheels" reversed when typing, but we understand.
Too many miles without corners will square off any brand or model of motorcycle tire on any bike!
I purposely make curvy roads out of straight roads when there is no other traffic around. I practice my evasive maneuvers, quick tire track changes, quick lane changes and even high speed cornering all on straight roads & highways. I've even used the full 5 lanes on hilly areas to make graceful high speed arcs, nearly touching my boot toes to the tarmac.
I practice in all weather, calm, wind or rain. Smooth roads & rougher roads, asphalt, gravel & dirt. Occasionally practice your emergency braking also, even in turns.
It will make you a better rider, reduce the monotony and keep your tires rounder.
What can I say, I live near the middle of 98,000 sq miles of the least populated, 10th largest state in the USA.
Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!
Still riding my 1987 KL650-A1. 84,000+ miles & counting
