Beards, Growing a beard, your beard, and beards plus

#1 Unread post by Skier » Mon Jun 02, 2008 8:35 pm

Let's talk about beards.

:cry: I can't grow a decent beard: when I am unshaved, it's a scary neckbeard. :cry: That's why I'm clean shaven except when taking a motorcycle trip.

Shaving stuff take up valuable space that could be spent carrying whiskey!

I feel your pain skier. My beard grows in all white trashy like. Kinda like Joe Dirt. My goatee doesnt connect and the sides are all patchy.

Almost thirty years old and cant even grow a beard. :(

I've worn a beard for most of my adult life. I do keep it trimmed up though.

I like the scruffy look myself. I shave about once every 2 wks. I'm 5' 9" and about 165 lbs. and when I'm clean shaven the youngsters don't give me any respect.When I've got some growth I just stare at them and they move out of my way. I must look like a wild man!
I always follow the rules.
The only exception to the rule occurs when I make an exception to the rule not to make an exception to the rule and that only occurs under exceptional circumstances.

So I last shaved on Friday night. No, not last Friday, the one before, and most people can't even tell I have any facial hair. :laughing:
Seriously, I have one of those razors they send in the mail as a promotional sample. I've used all 4 of the original blades sent with it and am working on the first blade in the first refill pack I bought for it. I've had the thing for 3, almost 4 years now! :laughing: :mrgreen:

i have a pretty good goatee.... although its red...Im trying to figure out why i have dirty blond hair and a red goatee..... it confuses me.... I get my barber to trim it when I get a haircut...cause thats when you notice how crooked it is...staring at your face for 20 minutes while getting th ehaircut.

Apparently I can't grow a real beard. It looks like Shaggy's from the Scooby Doo cartoons with just a little on the chin, and then more consistently under the jaw region. If I let it go it'd look goofy as heck because the sides don't really fill in at all.

I could to the moustache thing, but I'm not going to be sportin' a 'stache.

I got the same Shaggy style beard going but for some reason the hairs are starting to increase in numbers. All I want is a 5 o'clock shadow to go along with my "sweaty mess" styled hair... so action hero like. Too bad I am asian so I get the typical sharp stubby mustache thing going on and I have to shave it every 2 days.

Mustache fart!

I just recently cut off about 2 1/2 inches from my goatee because I figured that since I'm trying to move up in my company, I'd probably be taken a little more seriously if I didn't look like some nutbag biker freak. I really miss my long freaking beard.

Beards rock and shaving sux. I've had a beard since the day I got out of the service back in 1981. The "dog" barber that I use to go to trim my hair would rag on me about looking like a taliban and not a well groomed young man. I didn't say bad words back I just started having my wife do the honors and ceased helping her economically. I try to respect my elders as muxh as possible especially if they are also females.

Had a 'tash while in the service, and started my full beard the day I got out. Apart from shaving it off once a years in order to regrow and reshape it (tends to get a bit raggedy from trimming), I haven't been bald faced since. Saves me a fortune in shaving kit :mrgreen:

I have no idea what this has to do with motorcycling, but I'm glad I'm not alone. After 31 years of a clean face I decided to try and grow one. Let's just say it's sparse. I'm all bummed :(. Can you rogaine your face?

At least my wife is happy with it, that's good enough for me :).

Fess up. There's no shame, brother. YOU started this thread, and now TMW finally has a gathering of fuzzy-faced, quasi-bearded bikers! I knew it would happen one day!

I'm in the same situation. I could stop shaving for weeks and people wouldn't notice. I don't mind though because I hate shaving and I don't think I would look good with a noticeable beard either.
