Thanks for all the replies.
The tires are radials. I am used to riding over rain grooves so I don't think it is that. I installed Rick's fork brace before the tires and noticed an amazing difference. Pressures are at 35 front and rear. And I do ride cautiously in general, but in Calif, 70 mph will get you run off the road.
I tried leaning forward and no difference. Under heavy braking, no difference. Traction is nice with the new rear tire, but I don't ride super hard that I am dancing on the front wheel.
It must be the profile of the tire. The tourance was much flatter, that much I know so that must be it.
Not confidence inspiring.
