Public Service Announcement: Wear Your Safety Gear!
Look some people think it's cool not to wear protective gear. No its not cool. Think about it. If you don't wear your gear and smack your head in the ground are you going to look cool as a vegetable? Does it look cool when the pavement peels the skin off your knees and elbows? no. Have fun, do crazy stuff, wipe out, but wear your safety gear! especially your helmet!
