THE LONG HISTORY BETWEEN BIKERS AND THEIR EVER GROWING BEARDS


by Fran O'Reilly October 13, 2016 0 Comments

The relationship between man and beard can be traced back throughout human history. And as man evolved we soon created engines, one much applauded use of an engine was to power a beefy motorbike of which many of us enjoy choosing to ride upon. But when you envision a biker you often associate him with a beard. What's the unwritten connection between bikers and their astonishingly awesome facial forests?

Bikers beards often appear long, thick and rather unorganized. Usually a result to the wild wind breezing through your beard-mane. Growing out a beard may also symbolize a man's masculinity, strength and achievement. Often displayed against a leather or suede bikers patch jacket and torn jeans it's easy to see why many bikers opt in for packing some facial gruff, as it certainly adds to the individuals bad ass exterior, slap arm sleeves full of sweet ink and you have yourself an extra straight out of 'The Sons Of Anarchy'. A dude who you really don't want to mess with.

But behind the tough guy exterior bikers are often misconceived to be big hairy brutes that shouldnt be pissed with. But truth be told, most are actually your average man with a good heart. Each year here in Derby, the town where I'm from we have a local motorbikers community charity that help raise funds to buy sick and less fortunate children presents around the holidays. Then right around the Christmas months they take to the tarmac roads to pay a visit to children's hospitals to hand deliver their gifts to the children. As a matter of fact if you take just a few moments to Google search you'll be pleasantly surprised what good some of these so called ''biker gangs'' have done for your local community and the surrounding areas.

I guess it all boils down to 'not judging a book by its cover.' Sadly society tends to make a quick snap judgement on an individual simply on their looks. Bikers labelled as bad guys simply because of their appearance happens every day. But look past the beard, side line the tattoos and get to know them and their contributions for good and you might just be pleasantly surprised that any preconceptions you might have had may not be all that accurate, if at all.

Why not take a moment to reach out to the good within your local community and take a moment to see if you can lend a helping hand? Many great causes just like the one mentioned above are often crying out for local funding and community support. There are a lot of truly admirable locally run charities that would only welcome your good gestures. So, why not give it a shot?

That sees another beard blog completed for today my friends. As always leave us your thoughts, comments and questions in the comment section kindly provided below.

And until next time, Beard on Brothers, Beard on...
