Today’s topic: Explain the name of your blog and why you chose it.
I chose “azgsgirl” because it describes the place I live, me, and one of my motorcycles.
It’s kind of a long story, as they say. It started back when I used to ride Ducati motorcycles. I was “azducgirl” then, meaning that I live in Arizona and I rode a “Duc,” or Ducati. It morphed into “azgsgirl” when I changed to riding BMW motocycles. I had always wanted to ride a BMW, and when I finally found one that was small enough for me to ride, it was a BMW F650GS. “GS” stands for the German words for dirt and street, Gelände-Strasse, or more properly, Gelände-Straße. The bike carries that designation because it is a dual sport bike, meaning it can be ridden in the dirt or on the street. So, I changed my nickname to “azgsgirl.”
This is my 252nd post, and I have been blogging here for almost a year!
