With the things I have been reading about clutch issues and arms, and now belts, I decided to put my Mav through some hard riding and see what happens. I just got it back from the break in service on the 9th and I had a little over 200 Glamis miles on it. This past weekend we went to Ocotillo Wells and I decided to see if I could abuse this thing and how it would hold up. I went on a ride Sunday from Cahuilla trail in Ocotillo Wells over to Superstition with two crf450 dirt bikes. Once we hit pole line rd on the south side of the 78 it started getting rough and fun. Our average speed was 54MPH and I was really beating the living crap out of the Mav on some really long sections of big whoops, small but high speed jumps, ruts, drop outs, and a couple of rocks. I was really surprised that I was able to hang with the bikes on most of the sections. The suspension worked really well keeping the traction to the ground and the steering in control. I did bottom out a couple of times on a couple of drops outs where the washes cut through while we were haulin the mail, but other than that it handled great. We had to make a quick stop on the back to camp to tighten up the exhaust on one of the bikes and a couple of guys that we had passed on the way that were on KTM dirt bikes stopped and wanted to check out the Mav. They could not believe that I passed them in a SXS. I drove it really hard to the point of thinking I was for sure going to break something. After 64.3 miles of pushing it as hard as I could, the only thing I need to fix is getting some harness pads for my 5 points. My girlfriend and I both have rashes on our necks from them. When we stopped, she looked at me and said that she felt like she was in the baja just like the movie dust to glory LOL I have about 25 minutes of go pro video to edit, so I will upload it and share the link when I am done. I am really stoked on the quality and reliability of the Maverick, not to mention how safe we both felt, even riding on that fine line a couple of times, good job Can Am!
