    my favorite aspect of the wolverine opposed to a few other sxs I have ridden or driven is the clutch engagement. So many of the others are jerky and hard to do slow intricate applications of the throttle. Especially useful when using the machine for work purposes. Not really noticeable if your flat footing the gas all day.

    I’m 6’ 280lbs and I reside in Maine. I have 4500 miles on my Wolvy and never once have I felt it was underpowered or to “slow”. My only real gripe is ground clearance in stock form. I’ve taken it up Schoodic mountain on the Downeast Sunrise Trail and it’s probably the most serious and scenic climb available on an atv trail that’s available in Maine. It chugs right along and never skips a beat during the climb. Here is a video of the “bramp” trail just outside of Bingham. I’m just a little younger than you and have a sport atv background(Yamaha Blaster and Suzuki Quadracer 250) and totally content with the Wolverine capabilities. The fuel range is incredible as well with 202 miles on one tank of gas with a passenger. It’s a SxS you can’t go wrong with.

    Here is my run up Schoodic Mountain. The video doesn’t really do justice to the actual grade.

    That is an awesome video. What a cool trail and one hell of a view. Looks like it got a little sporty in a few places. I’d love to try something like that. What is your youtube channel name?

    Thanks ATCDan. It was a little sketchy in some places and it was my first trip up in that video. I’ve had people try it and they find it too scary. Here’s a picture from the top looking down at the Downeast Sunrise Trail.

    Tim Maddocks is my YouTube name.

    One of my favorite vids. I wish we had something comparable around here. We have some very good trails but not much that technical and certainly not that duration. That's a bucket list trail for me. Not sure I'll ever be able to haul to Maine though.

    Nice videos and an awesome photo. That just shows why Maine is one of our favorite places to go. Much like W.V. it has incredible scenery and some of the nicest people you will meet.
