The basis originally of the "Dark Lords" legacy was the FACT that noone seemed to see us arrive ANYWHERE before dark, which was generally due to Speedy* breaking down.
I think it was first used (citation required) on the 1st year of The Australian Classic Scooter Mille (1000km in 2-days)**
So, an appropriate catch phrase is required.
* Speedy is a gender neutral (lump of sculptured steel creating a) scooter, which was named due to having decals of a turtle named "Speedy", plus it was slow.
** Day 1: i cant really remember what happened to cause the delay (Il Ginchi should remember that).
Day 2: we were "rather late" possibly due to a major seize (at a rather fast pace on a downhill slope, then buttoning off), & subsequent roadside rebuild using 120grit sandpaper & a screwdriver to assist with the repair (& yes, even though it sounded more like a tractor that a 2/- it ran for many thousand km afterwards)... then an even later that day the floats in PHBH broke off, causing fuel starvation or flooding whenever there was any bump in the road. I think I nearly cried & ended up in hospital due to pushing it, plus had the fuel up with it running, as there was nil chance of it starting again)
Since then the standard has been upheld, with the exception of 1-day on The Mille when we got Line Honours!
