I really can't see anything in the pics you posted, they are too small.
Age is as important as wear on motorcycle tires....I copied this from the Motorcycle Superstore site...
"Checking the Born-On Date
Even if your tires are groovy with no uneven wear and plenty of tread, there is one more factor to consider, especially if you purchased a used bike with tires already on it. That factor is age. If you didn’t buy your tires or you can’t remember when you did, check for the production date. Among the numbers stamped on your sidewall, one of them indicates the “born-on date” for your tire. It won’t look like a standard date, but rather a simple three- or four-digit code like “4702.” The first two digits indicate the week the tire was made, and the last two digits indicate the year. For our example, that tire would have been made during the 47th week of 2002 (tires made prior to 2000 have only 1 digit for the year). The general rule-of-thumb is to avoid riding on a tire over six or seven years old. For example, if you see the number 1910, your tire isn’t really over 100 years old, it means it was born during the 19th week of 2010."
You bike may be a 2011....but if the tires were made in 2010 or even 2009, you are ready for new ones without question.
Other than that.....like mentioned above...use your eyes and remember that your life is at stake.
