My 2000 XT. Just a decent little enduro bike. Light duty pretty much, but I rode mine all over Colorado a couple of summers, and just had to be careful I didn't bottom the soft rear shock. I did a few changes to mine. I highly reccommend changing the front brake hose out to a stainless braided hose. Those big long fat rubber brake hoses are robbing you of half the brake's power. After the first trip to the mountains, I regeared it with a 3 tooth larger rear sprocket. It has Kenda Trackmaster tires on it. Great for the dirt, a bit slippery on pavement if you're leaning it over a lot, but they are street legal. First thing I did was replace the mirror with an Acerbis, install the Maier handguards, and pull those huge turnsignals off and mount up the little mini's.
I always thought the 2000 was a nice looking bike.

13,000 ft near Monarch, Colorado. First trip out there with it. Geared too tall for this type of riding.
