The damned bots have learned all of our new member questions and Im getting hit with 20 to 50 bogas new members a day. Since I'm mostly an Indian guy my questions would probably be a little to obscure I'm hoping you all can suggest some new questions that won't be real easy to google but not too hard. Any and all suggestions welcome. Hopefully we can come up with enough so that we have a set in reserve.

How do you use a clothespeg while riding a 45 (it goes on the fuel tap spindle to stop the tap vibrating closed)

What is “toe to go” (rocker clutch pedal action)

What are shift lever patterns on a WL

Which solo model has reverse gear (none)
Shoot, a man could have a good weekend in Dallas with all that stuff...

Is this about right?
When did AMF start producing Harley Davidson motorcycles? 1969
First H-D with hand clutch and foot shift? 1952
What is “toe to go”? Harley's backward foot clutch
Which solo model has reverse gear as standard equipment? none but a common special order
Last Harley with chain drive (excluding Street, or Rotax singles)? 1981
If these look ok I'll send them to Jason and maybe keep me from deleting so many memberships. The bots aren't very hard to pick out they describe their motorcycle with a few random letters but they are wasting lots of my time.

First hand clutch, foot shift HD was the 1942 XA. 1947 S125 two-stroke (first incarnation of the Hummer) also had 3-Speed footshift.

Last chain drive HD (excluding the Rotax singles, the street has belt drive) was the 1992 XL 883 Sportster - belt drives were originally fitted to 883 De Luxe and all 1200 models.

I’d guess that the first year of AMF is easy to google.

How about...

First year of hydraulic lifters on Sportster (1986, Evolution engine)
Last year of springer forks (1957 Servicar)
Last year of AMF badge (1981 management buyout)

And just think, Folks,...

Only four years before America put a man on the Moon, the MOCO didn't know what a relay was.
