The night was as cold and still as a morgue. A dark wall of cloud drifted across the sky, casually snuffing out the moonlight that might lend a certain gothic romance to the bleakness of the territory below.
The sound of a motorcycle engine gradually intruded on the chilly silence. A distant drone became a deep growl, swelling to a loud bark as the yellow beam of a headlamp came into view on the narrow, winding mountain road.
Like a gigantic bird of prey, the rumbling beast swooped majestically into a sharp right hand curve. With the perfect grace exclusive to only the strongest and most magnificent of eagles, the predator snarled through the acute bend.
