'' Then into first gear, forgetting the cars and letting the beast wind out....thirty-five, fourty....then into second and wailing through the light at Lincoln Way, not worried about green or red signals, but only some other werewolf loony who might be pullin gout, too slowly, to start his own run. Not many of these.... and with three lanes on a wide curve, a bike coming hard ahs plenty of room to get around almost anything.... then into third, the boomer gear, pushing seventy-five and the beginning of a windscream in the ears, a pressure on the eyebalss like diving into wate roff a high board.
Bent forward, far back on the seat, and a rigid grip on the handlebars as the bike starts jumping and wavering in the wind. Taillights far up ahead coming closer,faster, and suddenly--- zaaapppp-- going past and leaning down for a curve near the zoo, where the road swings out to the sea.
The dunes are flatter here, and on windy days sand blows across the highway, piling up in thick drifts as deadly as any oilslick.....instant loss of control, a crashing, cartwheeling slide and maybe one of those two-ich notices in the paper the next day: ''An unidentified motorcyclist was killed last night when he failed to negotiate a turn on Highway I''

Indeed...... but no sand this time, so the lever goes up into fourth, and now there's no sound except the wind. Screw it all the way over, reach through the handlebars to raise the headlight beam, the needle leans down on a hundred, and the wind-burned eyeballs strain to see down the centerline, trying to provide a margin for the reflexes.
But with the throttle screwed on there is only the barest margin, and no room at all for mistakes. It has to be done right....and that when the strange music starts, when you stretch your luck so far that fear becomes exhilaration and vibrates along your arms.You can barely see at a hundred: the tears blow back so fast that they vaporize before they get to your ears. The only sounds are wind and a dull roar floating back from the mufflers. You watch the white line and try to lean with it.... howling through a turn to the right, then to the left and down the long hill to Pacifica........letting off nowm watching for cops, but only until the next darkstretch and another few seconds on the edge.......The Edge.......There is no honest way to explain it because only the people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.The others-the living- are those who pushed their control as far as they felt they could handle it, and then pulled back, or slowed down, or did whatever they had to when it came time to choose between Now and L ater.
But the ege is still Out there.

you have to pass the initiation first. Meet us at the Como Zoo tonight at sundown. We will be by the sheep exhibit. Make sure you bring your velcro gloves and some protection. You never know where those sheep have been....

We can get your initiation done tonight as well. We will tie some liver to your toes and dangle you in the tiger compound. Or...... you can tongue kiss one of the buffaloes.

I thought this sounded like a description of Tony...

"...one of God's own prototypes. Some kind of high powered mutant never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die."

I'm as deep as the plot to an amateur gay porn
Keep ya hungry for more like Bangladesh
Then I'll borg di borg do borg ya like the Swedish Chef
Cause I'm one of a kind and kind of hard to find
Kind of like an ***** without his fire water wine
I'm like Schneider one day at a time
I'm feeling like Bob Vila nailing up your behind
To my wall like Daniel-son does
I'm waxing on I'm waxing off I'm waxing just because
I get wired like a Western Union and I got to be me
And I got more balls than the daily lottery
Like hemorrhoidal itch yo you can't ignore me
Cause I'm more tongue and cheek than a ***** orgy
