06 KTM 40 Adventure - Woody superlaced with orange RAD hubs - unstoppable

In the house (destroyed a crash bar in DV, Woodies were fine)


South Pass looking into Panamint


On the way to Lippincott, yes I hit that rock, with the crash bar, yard sale


Lippincott, you know the corner, just wallowed through the rocks, more to follow


Racing rocks


Tea Kettle Junction, yes it was Halloween

Wicked HP2 Enduro 21"/18" Superlite hubs nice little crash

Took the bike out shortly after getting the wheels from woody's complete w/ Pirelli MT-Rallycross tires, blue anodized superlite hubs, galfer wave rotor, thick spokes, black excel rims, and rim locks.
I live on Vancouver Island so I decided to take the bike along the fast gravel roads from Port Renfrew to Bamfield a research center for Marine Biology and all round nice place. The roads are frequented by massive logging trucks, so they're about 3 lanes wide narrowing to one over bridges, combined with the mountains and rivers; perfect for GS/Hp2 riding IMO. Regular speeds are 80kph however I did hit 150kph once, and 120kph regularly. Long story short made it to Bamf just fine, next day riding home about 60km from pavement decided to push her a bit(always when your tired never when your fresh), drifted a corner blind, (yes suicidal) and realized I was coming up to a single lane bridge and I couldn't see through it (the turn) so I scrubbed as much speed as possible and told the old girl this is where we part ways, and did such. The only thing worse the leaving a road at 80km/h is doing it attached to a 450lbs bike. The beak kissed a tree like a woodpecker hitting steel, (the HP2 reminds me of a bird). I stopped 17ft later, ran over shut off the bike and had a sit down. My partner came up shortly afterward (the dust in the helmet cam footage looked like a logging truck had gone by) and assessed the damage; buckled the front supports, bent crash bar; wheels.... A-Okay And that's what we're here for, they ran great, really lightening up the steering- improving the responsiveness, paired with the Triple-clamp, and next week stiffer springs, I think we've got a winner. Needless to say, the wheels are of superb build quality, and works of art to those who find BMW's attractive.

After:


Now didn't I see a thread about rallye fairings for the HP2 around here somewhere?

Woody's on the F650GS Twin

Hi Guys,

Just thought I'd chime in. We stopped by Woody's on the way home from a 6 week trip around the western US and had wheels installed on my wifes F650GS. Firstly, Woody's Wheel Works is a great shop with great bunch of folks that work there. Getting the wheels ordered was easy, and they offered us a fair trade-in on the OEM cast rims that made the price totally reasonable - not sure if they always do that. Our setup uses excel rims, Superlaced to a 650GS hub on the front and a modified KTM hub on the rear. And it's tubeless :) During the install they explained every aspect of the wheels, the shop and their process.

The wheels are rockin! They're a work of art. I got to take Nita's bike for a spin in the dirt and the difference was remarkable. I honestly didn't think I'd feel that much of a difference but the bike felt noticeably more planted. On the highways the ride was also super-stable. I can't recommend them enough.

The full story is here:

Here are some pics showing the set-up:

Nice photos! Curious to know if you or Woody have solved the fender modification issue for installing a 21" wheel fitted to a 2014 GSW. I worry more than a little of what my radiator will look like (and me too!) after a day or two of riding overland thru rocks and/or mud. I'm lousy at fabricating a MacGiver-type solution. TIA.

Few years ago I had a 1150 with a 21" (from woody)
I did a half fender (Ktm parts) in one hour... very efficient
