After my face plant in 68, a literal face plant, I couldn't shave for a long time. I guess I just never picked up the habit again. For years I wore a Bell Magnum, which was still one of the most comfortable helmets I have had, the only down side was the wind always seemed to find a strand or two of hair to blow up a nostril and tickle the heck out of my nose. I had to remember to snip the 'tash short before a holiday. The hair in a pony tail never gave me problems. Summer holidays in Europe, I almost always wore a neck scarf. I managed to keep them reasonably well. The first, a silk one was even a good quality one. The last before the switch to full face is a cheap, hemmed yard square with ying yangs printed on. The thin cotton feels good over the fuzz and is absorbant enough. I wore it bandanna style. It starts off up to my nose, working its way gradually down to my chin. Kept the bugs out of my teeth and reduced the thwack as bubble bees hit my face.
