    Default What Covid 19 made me do

    It was so bad that I had to take matters into my own hand, literally.
    I CUT MY OWN HAIR.
    I didn't want to but it was a necessity. Oh and by the way it looks terrible.

    I've been cutting my own hair with scissors since I retired over 5 years ago. Looks okay to me. I'm not trying to impress anybody any more.

    I shave mine, it has been freeing! The girls often ask this of me, "can I touch your head" being a gent I wait shyly to see what they reach for.
    I figure if girls can brag about being bra-less I can chill and stay hairless

    I got out the Norelco, set it to number 9 (maybe 3/4"), wife clips it. I don't ever plan to pay for another haircut. Once a month, I'm done in 10 minutes, meets my style, if you want to know what that is, look at my profile page

    I haven't payed for a hair cut for over 30 years. I get out the clippers, set the guide to 1/4 " and cut till the hair stops falling.

    My hair looked so bad that I took the clippers to it and I now have a very short buzz cut. Need to get a clipper with more attachments. All I have is a cordless Wahl that is a beard trimmer with two spacers both being for short cutting.

    Mike I would be glad to meet up for a ride when ever you want. What are you doing to your bike? I may be able to help you get it back together if you do not have it in a shop.

    I haven't seen the inside of a barber shop in 30 years. Buzz it to 1/4" once a week except when I went hippy for a year or so with a tail.. Buzzed it back once I got tired of it.... I probably saved enough to buy a couple of Ventures....

    Thanks!!! I am replacing the engine. The original was making some unnatural noises.... I think as a result of hydro lock. New engine is in, just trying
    connect all the hoses and what nots... and figure out which bolts go where. I might take you up on the help when I get further along especially if you have the same bike to look at and see which bolt goes where

    Mine is an 03 but they are the same as they didn't change much but color from 99-13. Give me a call if you need help with it. You can find my # in my profile.
