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.

Tubeless rims for BMW and KTM are just a phone call away.

Anyway, the bike is finished and Saturday is going to be the great day… I’m really anxious to try it, it looks sooooo god!

Many thanks again!

Yamaha should have put 21" on stock. But if U want get more clearence beteween wheel and heders pipes u should change front fork like he did.

Butter, it's not just for Teneres. Okay, maybe margarine for the Tenere and real butter for the BMW.
Either way a tube and tire irons are now standard equipment.

Yeah, this is the best option but veeeeery expensive!, you must change: forks, hub, rotors, front guard, the parts where the forks are fixed, (I don't know the name in english)....
