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..

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.
