Well I was excited before, and I caught all kinds of hell for that.

I got my Rumbux in the mail, and installed. I'm a happy camper. Well compared to Mikef500, I'm probably a sourpuss. But hey, one beer later, some help from my wife, threw in an oil change, and it's done!

You're going to let that stop you?

Do the obvious and SHOOT BACK!

That and the huge difference in how well the 21" tracks off road, makes this a must have upgrade for those who prefer the dirty side of riding. I bet a few of your fellow S10 owners will do the wheel swap now as well.

The 21" wheel just looks right on your Tenere. I have never liked the looks of these large dual sports with the goofy little rims on the front so they can have street type tires fitted.....especially the blue ones

I'm not surprised to hear that. Black does seem to be your true color.

I prefer the dirty side of riding, but I'm short and not willing to give up another inch of seat height, and I have no interest in going to a tube type tire. Plus there's the whole skid plate interference issue... I'd say this is far from a must have mod as of right now.
It does look good (and everyone says it handles off road amazingly well), but one of the advantages to the S10 over the T800XC, F800GS, and 990ADV in my book was the more standard front tire size (for more tire variety), and lack of tubes.

Me neither. I kind'a figured ol' Rick would like it big & black in one end, with a big, bright orange Dreamsicle in the other!

This is yet another reason why lefties are God's chosen people...throttle and pistol control at the same time.
