Any idea why the tread on the left side of the tire is wearing the way it is,, tire has 9500 miles , same thing happened on the one before this. Bike has 53k, Tire is pilot road 4

Yes, I have a good idea!
If you get some help then lean the bike over so the center of that wear spot is flat on the pavement you can then determine what you were doing with the bike to cause that wear. (hint-- left hand turns & left hand corners)-- Left hand corners & curves are usually longer & ridden faster than the same turn or corner turning to the right.
Thing to keep in mind is: the area of that tire that is worn MUST be touching the pavement for it to wear like that. So with wear that far off center it is doubtful that you are touching that part of the tire while riding straight ahead even if leaning the bike slightly to counter PTTR.
