Hitting a speed bump....hard

Looks like it hurt like B****

Somewhere in the comments it said that he was alright in the end, just a little banged up, if anyone was wondering.

Re: Hitting a speed bump....hard

Is it wrong that part of me wants to laugh? Anyway, I've hit a few speed bumps quiet fast in my time, but I accelerate through it so that my front doesn't do that.
