The World of Coke in Atlanta GeorgiaSome Tips about Atlanta Georgia

  • It doesn’t matter where you are from or what you call a carbonated drink; soda, pop, fizzy drink, in Georgia it’s ONLY a Coke or Coca-Cola.
    People in the Southern United States usually call soft drinks “Coke” or “Coca-Cola” because the worldwide headquarters of the Coca-Cola Co. is based in Atlanta, Georgia. Coke was so often the drink of choice that the general population began referring to all carbonated beverages as “Coke” or “Coca-Cola”.
  • The courts of Atlanta outlawed tying a giraffe to a telephone pole or street lamp.
    I don’t know why you would have a giraffe in Atlanta. “Alright Geoffrey, I have to go to the grocery store, stay by the telephone pole. I’ll just tie your leash here.” I really don’t know how this would even come up in legislation.
  • Triumph motorcycle’s (company now based in Atlanta) new model, Street Twin, was voted motorcycle of the year in 2016.
    In 2016, Triumph had the biggest new-model launch in the company’s history, those models include the Street Twin, chosen by Motorcyclist magazine as the motorcycle of the year.
  • No matter how hot Atlanta gets, Georgians hate when you call their state capital Hotlanta.
    Every time the word “Hotlanta” is used, Georgians die a little inside. That overused nickname is a relic of Atlanta’s efforts in the 1980s to establish itself as a major city. Now that it has been established as a reputable American city, Hotlanta should never be used again. Ever. Again.
  • All motorbike riders must wear a helmet at all times.
    The lawmakers in Atlanta Georgia want their streets and patrons to be safe, as safe as possible at least.
  • You must wear eye protection unless your bike has a windscreen.
    Lawmakers don’t want motorists to get something in their eye and be dragged out of commision. They also don’t want accidents caused because of eye damage. But, because you need a helmet to ride, get one with a visor!
