It was merely an attempt at humour, albeit a feeble one.

Lucas has a history of innovation but has been much maligned for it's lack of reliability, perceived or real, on British cars and bikes.
Having never owned a British vehicle I can't comment as to whether those issues were real or imagined.

On a completely different note, I just happened to look at my post count and realized that I have reached the Number of the Beast...........666. In the thread that got me hooked on ADV Rider no less, cool.
