Today my brother and I went for a little night ride, well I had just finished my re-build of my second build and wanted to test it out. Well obviously you can guess how that went, around 50km/h I was suddenly no longer on the board. I managed to take 2 large steps and then tumble into a roll according to my brother.
I was wearing a full face helmet so my head was safe but I had no other gear. I am now buying new gear including knee pads, armoured hoodies and maybe pants too. Look at it this way I ripped clothes worth at least $150 so why not spend that on proper gear to not rip your nice new clothes.
I was lucky and just have minor road rash and cuts but guys this is serious please get some gear
