How Old Is The KLR?

It's kind of like the Cassette Tape of motorcycles: debuted in the same year this song was a big hit:


Of course we all know the real stars of this video are Clive Clark, "The Black Bartender With The Red Suspenders" and the Blonde Chick, who demonstrates that like the KLR, some things never go out of style.....

Very clever, planalp, very clever.

"I've been Rick-rolled", Tom said, giving up.

No Rickroll intended, Schmitz. Rick Astley's trendsetting and beautiful video has been cheapened and debased as a joke by popular culture over the years........

When the KLR came out I was 25. I'm 52 now which means the KLR lineup , for all intents and purposes, is half as old as I am. Thought Rick's video kinda put it all in perspective and it's just a damned catchy tune.....

The world can badmouth Rick all it wants, but I'm sure he's gotten more ass over the years than most of the rest of us combined and that's something I respect.....

I think it was on that album that he did a cover of Nat King Cole's 'When I fall In Love' and did an incredible job of it.

He really could sing well.
