Psychiatrist Dr. Keerthish Shetty's  Response
Sleeping even while standing or riding a two-wheeler is a significant problem and necessitates a thorough evaluation. One should understand that feeling sleepy and actually sleeping (while riding vehicle for example) are quite different. Also, you have not mentioned about the quality/quantity of your night time sleep.

Consult a sleep specialist/psychiatrist, who might want you to undergo a polysomnography in a sleep lab.
