I ride an 05 in the desert.
No mods except xring chain and desert tires..
It goes really well. Stacks of pull to go up the dunes etc..
I love it..

We've always ridden ours in the desert. Been racing them this year without modification outside of a bigger tank, an off road flywheel and dropping one tooth at the rear. My son is 13th place in the open class in spit of missing 3 races, and I won my class last time out. The '06 is a great desert bike. Needs a little clutch work in the tight stuff, but not bad.
