Question Is this normal wear on a TKC - 70

I have less than 1,500 miles on these TKC - 70's ....Rolling the bike in the garage yesterday I noticed the thread blocks uneven wear ..Any thoughts? Running 36 pounds front... mostly backroads..

For 1500 miles it sure does seem a little early for that kind of wear.
You better slow down a little.

My front TKC70 with 3,600 miles is wearing the same way. At walking speed I can feel it thumping away. Once up to speed it smooths out. On my last ride I was cruising along at 80-85 mph with one hand on the bars and with no hands at 65mph with no issues.
