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.
