The Auto Bikes I have sold (GT had one in their Airstream line in the late 1990s) had a sort of adjustable shifting point. The adjustment changed the wheel RPM that the shifter would react to, and perform a shift. The few we sold and the many we serviced had some negative comments from owners. But the comments were never offered without our asking first how the rider felt about the bike. The majority of riders either didn't seem to mind the auto shifting or didn't even think about it. A product which did offer an answer even if it wasn't to the question "real bikies" thought was the question.Andy
