im considering buying the p1000 5 seater, A because its big red, B, because of reliability. I ride mostly at ocotillo wells which is a mix of sand washes and dirt trails, however a few times per year i do ride at glamis in the sand dunes. My concern is i can find next to no info on how these perform in the sand, is there issues that come from riding in the sand like clutch or engine etc. The p1000 should have enough power to climb in the sand dunes as polaris maxes a 900 and 1000 both of which climb sand dunes just fine. Also im a bit concerned that as of yet there is very little after market suspension parts at least from what i can find. I have a Kawasaki teryx which im selling but i added long travel kit to it and it rode through the sand, desert and dirt like butter with 17 inches of travel. Anyways any advice would be great, ive hear there may be a sport version coming so maybe i should wait, however im a guy so i want to pull the trigger now. thanks J
