So here's my story: I purchased a very nice '12 S10 back in April and have been just loving this motorcycle. I bought this bike with the intention of going off pavement whenever possible. After only two months of riding it I managed to find a way to break the rear hub and brake components. I wanted to explore an area along the wide banks of a local creek. After riding through a short trail I came out onto the bank that was covered in rocks that looked like landscaping rocks over sand. The further I rode out, the rear wheel began to sink and bury itself. Thinking this was a bad idea, I aborted and turned around heavy on the throttle so I wouldn't get stuck. It was making God awful noises from the rocks getting churned up. I managed to get out of there and back on the road but heard noise from the rear wheel. I limped it home and to my horror this is what I found: Broken tab on hub, broken caliper bracket, bent brake rotor, bent caliper pins. So I'm guessing a rock or rocks got scooped up by the tabs on the hub and got wedged against the brake caliper. Then the force of that caused everything to break and bend. Needless to say, I'm extremely bummed and in the process of getting parts. So after all that, I'm just wondering if anyone has seen this and also a warning to stay away from deep bottomless rock/sand areas. Maybe this was a fluke but I will not be taking the S10 near that creek bank again.
