hello and welcome
a couple of things that need to be inspected. the steering head bearings. with the bike supported you can check for free play with the steering stem and its holdings.
another is the rear tire. seems funny but vibrations and handleing i have seen do transfer from the rear at times. and if the tire may be out of balance it can throw the front tire wear off as well.
and another of course is the fork freeplay. as you r the dealerships should have inspected is the fork bushings. they have a teflon coating and if they wear down they can develop a clearance that results in bad front end handleing and tire wear. between any of those items you should be able to find the culprit. thank you.

I too have had the same issue with my 1987 GL 1200 and found this info on MCWorld.com really helpful: http://www.mcnews.com/mcn/letters/Letters10032.pdf

Here is the "Blue Book"
Seems to be a bit over priced. I would ask the owner straight up why he is asking over $1,200 more than blue book value. (add ons? )
Also call your insurance agent and ask them what the full coverage replacement value is.
Are there maintenance records?
Has it ever been in an accident?
Why the new windshield with only 14 K miles?
Owner's manual with the bike?
When was it last registered?
Exhaust pipes chrome or Dark Blue? Dark Blue = been run hot or high RPM for extended period
What color is the engine and transmission oil? Does it smell like oil or have a burned smell?
Last thing to keep in mind... is ask yourself.. 14 K miles or 114K miles? While your looking at it. Title in the persons name that is selling you the bike?
There are many many more things to consider...including your own driving experience. There are 2 kinds of motorcycles......
Those that have been DOWN
and Those that are waiting to go Down. Either from falling off a foot rest or accidents. I have owned many motorcycles since 1970. Every motorcycle has their own story to tell... some good, some bad.
