The department of annoying sounds

First there was a little dog yipping. It wouldn't stop. Just yipped and yipped. I don't know whose dog it is; I assume it's visiting someone around the corner. Finally it shut up.

Then the motorcycle. Someone started riding a motorcycle apparently in circles. Around and around. I'd hear it accelerate, then slow, turn, accelerate again, over and over and over. Then the dog came back, yipping, while the motorcycle continued its rounds - I can't tell just where it is riding but it's very nearby.

Now the dog is barking intermittently and it sounds like the motorcycle is making a wider path...maybe...going farther away and then coming back again...

Otherwise it's quiet around here.
