Yes, but you're not supposed to be sleeping while riding a motorcycle.

Looks like excessive force/police brutality to me.

I loved his form and vibrant gestures, but he just didn't stick the landing. Unfortunately, he'll be docked for that...

Memo to wannabe assassins: find a building next to one of these monster Mexican speed bumps, wait for Limo to slow to a crawl....

Note that his head hits the ground three times. I believe he would be quite dead without the helmet.

Ugh - even after he's stopped the bike is still sliding and making beer can crushing sounds. I hope he wasn't hurt too badly, that looked pretty nasty...
