A quick inspection prior to riding tonight and I found that my back tire seems to be coming apart! Does anyone know what would have caused this? I always check tire pressure and this tire has about 6K miles on it (no burn-outs on this tire). The tread depth is fine. I guess I won't be riding tomorrow. Has anyone else had this problem with the 180 Dunlops?

Dude, The wear indicators are showing on that tire meaning it should have been replaced.

Yes, the tire is worn out as is obvious and others have said.. but it also looks like at some point it was bottomed out and hit a screw up under your fender.. That's where the center grove is probably coming from. It will probably happen again on a new tire too unless you fix the problem when the bike bottoms.. Maybe you lowered your bike?
