I put mine to the test the other day. I had three 50 lbs. salt blocks on the back and a 50 lbs. sack of deer food on the front. I had my rifle on the front and went down some nasty trails. This bike handles extra weight with no problem. I did have my shocks set on the 2nd-to-hardest pre-load. I do this because I weigh 300 and I carry stuff on the bike. Plus I like the way this bike handles at high speed. This bike goes anywhere I care to go. This bike handles mud holes and rocky creek beds with no problem. I really enjoy my new bike and would recommend it to anyone that wants a good hunting bike. Also I was able to ride within 30 yards of a deer that was lying down before it got spooked and left. This bike is extremely quiet when putting through the woods. It is woods-friendly and can turn on a dime. I traded my Raptor in on this bike with no regrets. I can't get over the ground clearance of this thing.
