I'm baffled. Is this a rear-drive failure warning? This shiney rub area appeared on my tire this afternoon after a 30 mile jaunt. With the bike on the center stand, there is no rubbing or drag on the tire that I can see or feel. The area being rubbed appears to be the forward part of the drive shaft tube. Also, there doesn't seem to be any wobble or side to side movement of the wheel.
