All This Talk Of Legs...What About Arms!!!BigLeadOutGuy

Hey all,
I just read a post about leg shaving and why we do it. Beside the tradition, the ease of changing bandages when we fall and have road rash and looking pretty damned cool. Does anyone shave their arms as well? I took a nice spill this past winter and got plenty of road rash on my arm and since having to change bandages on my hairy arm I now shave my arms as well. I never wanna live through pulling tape off hairy bodyparts ever again. Its been sometime since I have taken a spill but in nearly every race im in...someone does fall...I know its just a matter of time before im in the wrong place at the wrong time and ill go down too. So I would rather be prepared.
so lets hear it for the arms!!!
some do, not Ilonefrontranger

I guess it depends on how hairy your arms are. Most of the guys I know who shave their arms as well do it because they had the same experiences as you did, that or they're just hairy buggers.
