    I've only put 28 miles on it so I don't have much testing time in, but I did make a video before the first ride.

    Very nice! I really like that machine. Looks like it may run just a little stronger than the p5;)

    Thanks, guys. It's a big, big improvement over the Honda. I'm looking forward into going on some long rides with the group again.

    I wasn't always at the back of the pack. Sometimes I was at the front of the pack coming behind us. :D

    The more i see of these, the more i like them.

    @Piston Honda, how is the belt access? I'd like to see some pics of that area next time you do a photo shoot. Can't find any online...

    I'm hoping i won't need to be in there for a long time, but I'm getting ready for first maintenance and I'll be digging all around on it. I'll get pics.

    Took a look at one at the local dealer for a minute or two. Machine was packed in tight, so couldn't really see any engine access...but the most notable aspect was the bed.

    In pics and such, it looks decently big, but not in person. In fact, it looks no bigger than the old one's bed, and that's kinda disappointing. Seems like they could have made it larger and kept the machine nice looking.
    This seems like a strange complaint coming from someone with a 500 Pioneer, but the 500 was always going to be a stop Gap until I could get back into a larger machine (with a nice big bed).

    I'm moved to the Wolverine from a P500.

    The bed is 48" x 29.5" measured from the inside. That's plenty big enough for my gear which is what I'll use it for 95% of the time.

    Isn't the fact the bed dumps one of the big additions for this year? I know it had the bed before, but I think it was fixed.

    Thanks for the size specs. Yamaha hasn't posted them.
