Don, thanks for your concern and I have been keeping VERY up to date on ALL the posts with this bike. The dealer I intend to by my bike from knows what the problem is and checks all avanti supersports and auto powers befor they are put out in the display room or shipped out. He had 3 auto powers lock up and his friends company had 1 autopower and 2 supersports lock up, since they have started performing their checks/maintanence they have not recieved a single report of the problem. If I remember right the 3 autopowers that he had lock up from his store wher due to the manufacturer putting them together INCORRECTLY!
At any rate I know I'll be getting a perfect machine =)
