Greetings,
Been a member over on Wolverine Forums since 18. Owner of a 16 Wolverine R-Spec and now a 2022 RMAX R-Spec, looking to acquire a 23 Viking.
Here for info and hopefully to share some as well.
thanks

Why do you want a Viking when you already have 2 Wolverines?

I think my answer should be "why not?" :)
Sorry....I didn't write my introduction properly. 16 is gone, replaced with a RMAX. RMAX isn't doing it for me, I want a Viking. Might sound weird to some, but I think Viking is a better fit.
Ordered a Viking, but around April 22, Yamaha said it will not be fulfilling any of the orders and if I wanted a sxs to replace my already traded in and sold Wolvy, then a RMAX was only option. Gave it try but I'm not in love with it. Tons of fun mind you, but I'm looking for something more utility than sport. Kinda like marrying a stripper....it's all kinds of fun, but not really that practical and something bad will eventually happen.

I get it, I got invited to a Yamaha test drive for the Rmax, lots of fun because big horse power always is fun. But not a great utility machine like the Viking which is 99% of what I use mine for.

I've always thought that would be fun for a while! 😁

Welcome and nice to see you!

Where are you located, there were 2 Vikings available in the Edmonton area here within the last 2 months, clearly they got snapped up quickly, but I'd check the smaller dealers, even out in Hinton.
