Greater wear on right edge of tire

"chicken strips" are about double the size on the left. Is this normal?



I don't know why this would be. Bike tracks straight. Is it because I might be a little more comfortable hanging off a little to the left a little which decreases lean angle a little bit?

Bike is a Ninja 500. Not that it really matters.

Everyone has a preferred side when cornering.
My strips are approx 2mm on the left, 6mm on the right side.
I get much lower/feel more confident turning left than I do right!
Strange, as being English we get much more practice with right handers due to our roundabouts!
