I have two thoughts on spoked wheels.

1st: So far, nearly 6k, nary a problem....at all. Lots of people put many thousands of miles on them without trouble. Plus, if a spoke breaks you still can go....cast wheel breaks....well, you know. I haven't had any difficulties and the guys on the Harley sites don't seem to understand why it can make me nervous.

2nd: Am looking into either sealing these wheels or getting cast ones. Yeah, I really like plug-n-play tires. Have never really had spoked wheels 'til now. If I can find a set cheap I'll pull the trigger, otherwise I may try to seal these.

I like the look. But, I like the peace of mind that tubeless gives you. I rode to TN and back without any difficulties. Maybe I am just a worry wart!
