Bought a 2001 bike yesterday. I run a KTM 390 Adventure as a commuter/play bike as well.

My Bird has real weird tyre wear, so I need a front tyre asap...

That's actually normal for that tire. The wear Increase on the one side is most likely do to the crown of your roads.

Welcome from the South West.
Tyre wear doesn't look too bad to me but be aware the Bird is heavy on the front end, low pressure can lead to cupping very quickly.

New tyre on has transformed that problem, you could flex the carcass in the wear spots with your finger. The brakes are now the weak point, they are really spongey, and the back brake is non existent.
