Question Uneven tire wear

I have a 2004 K1200RS I purchased with 8k miles, I replaced the rear tire 2,500 miles ago with uneven tire wear. The front tire also has uneven tire wear, the bike now has 13,500 miles. Is this normal?

I am assuming that the tire is original, if so that's very good mileage out of a front tire. Replace it. And 11,000mi. out of a rear is excellent mileage also.
