What is the weirdest encounter you have had while on the road? One day when I was leaving to go skating, I heard some crazy noise underneath my car and found some homeless dude sleeping under that.
Why do you choose Triple 8 for your protective gear needs? Because of the quality, durability and they are very comfortable.
Words to live by? NEVER GIVE UP!!!
