I've done this before, back when I made the annual trip to Sturgis. I know that eventually there isn't any feeling to a beard. In fact, when you shave it off then you can feel the air movement on your face and that's quite weird for a few days. But I haven't been to Sturgis for about 5 years or more, and so I hadn't grown a beard for that long.
As an aside, when you go to Sturgis you ought to look the part. The "brethren" there expect some effort to blend in. Consequently, I have managed a fairly true 'scooter-trash' look when I make the effort.
As long as I have the chin-hair I need to dust off the Harley, get it inspected and licensed, and start riding again this summer. It is, of course, the answer to the question: "WWJD?" (What would Jesus drive?) It's environmentally friendly, leaves a small carbon footprint, quick, high-mileage, ....fun as hell, and pretty badass, too. All the ingredients needed for transcendental transportation.
Steppenwolf sang the theme song to it all:
Get your motor runnin'
I like smoke and lightning
Racin' with the wind
And the feelin' that I'm under.....
It's a biker thing. Can't be explained. Can be shared, though. You start with face hair; ... then let it take you to its logical extreme.
Hmmmm......no wonder missionaries are clean-shaven.
