commonly acquired from bailing at top speed while operating a multi-wheeled street plunging apparatus, especially a skateboard or inline skates, road rash is a slang term used to describe the assorted flesh wounds resulting from such dangerous behavior. often, the term is used by one seeking to elaborate and intensify his/her recent extreme skate adventures. depending on the severity of the road rash, one may experience prolonged bleeding, pussing, and uncomfortable stinging. discoloration, scabs, and scarring of the epidermis is common. there is little treatment for road rash; keep wounds clean, refrain from furthur injury and stay away from the streets, rest, and consult your doctor if necessary. otherwise, enjoy showing off scars and battle wounds to your friends and anyone else interested.
so dude i was bombing twin peaks the other day on my longboard at like 40 and this frickin car comes barreling around the corner and i clip his bumper and hit the pavement. i slid at least 10 feet and i took some serious road rash on my body. hopefully i'll be back on my board in the next few weeks and i can take the whole thing yo.

I was playing Road Rash the other day, then I went out to do the same on my motorbike, and got road rash.

The red, raw area around your mouth that comes from making out with someone who has lots of facial hair. Some people consider it to be a badge of honor. It's been acknowledged in some scientific communities that Road Rash was once a sign of nobility.
Cheryl: Kenneth gave me some serious Road Rash last night. It feels like his beard peeled 25 layers of skin off of my face. Awwwww'right.
