Well I witnessed the event that cost Terry Dorner and Shaun l "lot" of money a few years ago. Where sides were drawn up to see who could collect the most money for (my memory is failing) a rider who had suffered a problem. In any case - the "don't cut" won by a narrow margin .

Today - Gerry - with Shaun's and a few others assistance - did the unthinkable. And if anyone would like a few pictures - let me know.

I've heard it said that "A picture speaks a thousand words." If that's indeed true, then yes! I'd like to see pictures! Because after reading Lloyd's words I'm clearly too far out of "the loop" to understand what's going on here. Oh well.

OK Here it is - although I had to post it on my website since I had trouble uploading it to WW.

This started the afternoon - First they braided his hair (5 briads). Then several took turns cutting each off - Finally Roma (my wife) gave him a trim and then Shaun gave him a buzz. Unfortunately, my battery ran out at that point.

The hair was braided so he can donate it to an organization that makes wigs for kids with cancer.

PS This almost happened two years ago after a tour stop as Gerry raised money for a wakeboarder that was having money problems (don't remember the details). The "don't cut" donations marginally outweighed the "cut" and he kept the hair until today.

Wasn't it for Mike (I forgot his last name) he became paralized from the waste down from a snowboard accident?

Well I'm sure we'll see him with the new do soon. Thanks for sharing those. He almost looks like one of the guys from the band Korn with those five braids

Lloyd thanks for the pics. I can't imagine Gerry with short hair, nevermind a buzz! But of course he's doing something good with it, which is his style.

I just can't imagine watching Gerry ride without the signature ponytail and bandana.
