Woody's Wheel Works Superlace over Mag

Hey yall!!

So it is sorta spring here in AK and I just completed the bike! I am a traveler by nature and plan on taking this bike everywhere the military takes me...including Europe I just got the new superlace spokes put on by Woodys shop in Denver, CO and I know some of yall have spokes. I would like to hear from yall some of your stories or input on spokes for when you have been in a crutch or well impressed. Just incase is accidents come when I am out in about, it be good to remember some wisdom...ya know just in case! Also, I have the factory mag wheels, there are nothing wrong with them, but I really dont want them. Is there a places to sell them? People up here in AK are more BMW GS style...im tryin to make the Strom more popular

Thanks yall!

Off-topic: There are a few of us Stromtroopers up here in AK -- glad to have you join us! Are you at JBER, or Eielson/Greeley, or ...?

On-topic: there's a for-sale section here on the Stromtroopers web site; you could post your OEM mags here. I'm curious how you like the spoked wheels...how long have you had them on the bike? How are they working for you so far?

Hey man,

Yeah I am up here at JBER on the elmendorf side... Yeah I didnt know much about selling on here cause I suppose they have some requirements established that I dont even know if I meet them or not....something about posting so many post in a month??

So I bought the bike April/May of 2010 wrecked no salvage title. THe dude laid it over on gravel and in his driveway. Busted the forks, both sides of the tank fairings and the black vent fairing under the headlights and one of the head lights. The hard cases on the back kept the rest of the bike from being burgered up. I snagged it up and fixed most of the broken stuff.

I have literally had the wheels on the bike for a few days now and tonight is the first ride with the lady. Im super impressed with the super lace design and quality of craftsmanship that they have put into these wheels. Them guys down at Woody's really know what they are doing. Ill continue business with them for as much as I need their help.

WD-40 works great to clean forks. It takes grease off instantly. Be careful not to get any on your rotors or tires.

Show us a picture of your bike with spokes. That would be interesting to see.

Edit: Oh i see a small picture of your bike in your first post. Hard to see it really tho.

Welcome! That's how I ended up in Alaska -- my dad was stationed at Elmendorf when I was 18. Enjoy the ride tonight! I'm still waiting for the ice to finish melting in my driveway before I take mine out; my boss rode his VStar 650 to work today, talking about what a warm beautiful day it was and I threatened to throw him out the window Honestly though, I'm still finishing up winter maintenance, so the bike isn't *quite* ready to ride yet.

BugMagnet -- if you click on the picture, a larger size will open up. IMHO, the wire-spoked V-Strom looks pretty good. I might have to check into the mod next year

Very nice! Woody's does some of the best wheel work I've ever seen. One question can they make the rims tubeless?
