Reader Poll is Up

Of all the things that I've done to cause a stir (and I've done MANY), I swear I've never had a response like I've had in the last week or so. About 1.5 weeks ago, I decided to grow a "winter coat" on my face. Partially for a little warmth with winter riding, partially to see if I like it and can stand it. This is longer than I've ever toughed it out in the facial hair category.

Now I've had some "that looks good on you comments" and I've had some "I hate facial hair" comments. To appease one of the "I hate facial hair" comment people, I agreed to put up a poll to let you, the humble reader, decide if I should keep or lose the beard. Pictures are below. You decide. Don't Delay...the poll closes Sunday night at 10:00pm!

Only 1 vote that counts, Laura's!... Let me know what she decides.

I say stay! In fact, I'm tempted to join you (just after a wedding I have next weekend). I've never made it longer than a week and would be willing to try a no shave... a... December. Maybe we can donate money we save on razors to the MS Society? You know, just to justify the whole thing.

For the record, Laura doesn't care one way or the other.

You look like you should play for ZZ Top

Tez said...

I vote yes!..even though Laura's is the only vote that really counts.

I have been tempted to grow mine out as well....hahaha

See you at The Pit!

I think it looks very Chuck Norris. Who wouldn't want that?

I know in the twin city area they have a contest (beard off) for such things. They have a start date and a OK to shave the bitch off date in the spring. Perhaps you should organize a Lane Hogs contest.

Oooo...love that idea. May have to wait until next year as I'm not starting over now!

Lindsey J said...

How long are you willing to let it get? That greatly influences my vote.

bikingbrady said...

No definite timeline, but I was thinking about a rule where it has to be 50 degrees for a whole week.

Lindsey J said...

If that was a response to me, I meant to ask how long will the HAIR get?

bikingbrady said...

My bad...I will keep it trimmed. No super long curly stuff. I'll work on my "mansculpting".

Lindsey J said...

Ok, then if Laura's ok with it and you keep it maintained, I'm ok with it. ha!

Hooterville Mayor said...

Yer trimmin' it just a bit too short. Let it grow another 1/8th inch and then yer set.
Lucky boy, no grey in your beard!
Mine usually gets shaved off on April fools day...

Are you posing for a mug shot?

The beard says to me: "I lost my drivers license after my 6th DUI, and now I have to ride this bike."

Keep the beard. When you get to full "hobo" status, you can get free food at the Welcome Table :)
