ALWAYS wear a helmet if you plan on being in the air, or doing anything other than rolling on two.

Gloves are a important item too....if you do fall though, and think you've broken your hand, leave the glove on until you get to the emergency room if there is blood, or until you get to a doc (within a couple hours) if there is no blood. The glove will actually maintain some of the hands integrity if it's broken...

knee and elbow pads, while look kinda dumb to some people, are very important. Along with your head, elbows and knees are 'parts' that can't really be fixed all that easily....

Another item I won't ride without is eye pro.... Eyes are irreplaceable and easy as all hell to damage. Anymore you can get some pretty sweet ballistic glasses, that look a lot like the trendy styles of today. Check out ESS for these....

Ive decided I should get some knee pads and elbow pads, and then a helmet. Knee pads would be nice if you need to bail or you are falling because then you can land on your knees and not worry so much. Can anybody show me some links with good quality knee and elbow pads? Thanks.
