I got back on the bike and continued on these sweeping curves that wrap themselves around the mountain. The roads were nearly empty. Single motorcyclists slipped past me intermittently. I was a lone wolf. I continued on 19 heading south into Georgia, toward my cousin’s home in Atlanta. Mountain views fell away and I found myself riding between large hills, up then down, again and again, past little towns bordered by gas stations and fast food stops. As I neared Atlanta, I jumped on the expressway. Six lanes wrap around the city and then turn South into it.
