    But how far up do you stop?

    I'm not going to shave my legs, my relationship with women means more to me then my relationship with bikes.

    not much point if you're a tourist, anyhow i got a whistle from some good looking woman younger than my daughter the other morning:biggrin: so theres no chance of me shaving them now.

    The reason I put this up is it amuses me why roadies do it. The usual excuses why are because of road rash - why don't you shave your arms then? ; aerodynamics - never heard of the effect of a rough hull/barnacles on a boat? ; or massages - how many of us can expect that when we get home? The real reason is peer pressure AND VANITY.

    PS. I have done it myself but can't be arsed anymore.

    PPS. Should this be in soapbox?

    The real reason for me is:

    ...cos I have better legs than all the women at work and it pisses them off :smile:

    The best shave is the first one of the season.

    Feels really spooky when your jeans just glide over your legs without much tugging :?:

    Not that I'd know ... think I read it on here somewhere ... something some other bloke posted ... :smile::?::?:

    Nah seriously - I reckon you've outted yourself aint you Admin !!! ie 'when your jeans just glide over your legs'...

    Come on nothing to be ashamed about mate ! :biggrin:

    - I do my legs Fri. or Sat. as it just feels/looks better ands' better for rubbing the legs down.

    Though - id think twice to actually say that to the lads in work.

    'Though it amazes me how women do theirs as they hardly have any 'hairs' compared to a mans leg hair growth.

    Makes me wonder if thats the reason that the finish on a shaved male leg can be better than a females..though a nice shaved leg on a a tanned/toned womans leg is fantasic !!! :tongue::tongue::tongue:
