Time for a Change

When I started this blog, I gave it a very specific name to reflect the tour of the USA I was about to undertake. Now that that trip is well and truly over, the title long longer fits, so it is time for a change.

I hope you like the new title.

Makes sense. My blog is called 'the motorcycle project'- the project being learning to ride. Well, I learned. I rode my own H-D to Sturgis this year. Now I'm stuck with the blog title.

And the only thing worse than flies in your teeth is a grasshopper flying inside your helmet at 80mph. Been there!

Donna - Glad you like it.

No Name - As far as I can tell, in Blogger, you can change the name of your blog and indeed I have done that. But it looks like the links from other blogs are currently retaining the old name.

Bob - it then becomes 'Flies in your Throat'.

RichardM said...

Yep, anyone with a link to your blog needs to manually edit the name. I always thought that bugs were one of the benefits of a face shield.

Your teeth are flying on my blog list. Change the name, but keep the curiosity and joy.

SonjaM said...

Made my day. Flies in your Teeth and rightly so for thee who ride with beanie buckets. I love it!

Trobairitz said...

Very nice. Now I just need to figure out how to edit the name on my blog links.

Raftnn said...

Bugger.......wish I had come up with that!

Gary France said...

Richard - I would have thought somehow the Blogger system would have automatically renamed it, but you are correct, the link needs to be manually renamed.  I will write a post soon about how to do that.

Circle Blue - I just saw that the new name is on your Moto-Blog list.  Thanks!

Sonja - I am glad you like the new name.  I didn't know how to chance the name of a blog in the links in the list of blogs I read. Knowing that you changed the name of yours, I used yours as a test and worked out how to rename any blog I point to in the list of blogs I read.  So thanks, without you knowing it, your blog helped me to understand how to do this!

Trobairitz - Clever you!  I see you have renamed it already.  Thanks!

Roger - Sorry about that. It's not like me to be creative, so that was a one-off bit of inspiration!

Flies in your teeth beats bugs in your ears!

Gary France said...

Lady R - I have no doubt that is true!

Chris Luhman said...

updated my link. now you just need to buy the domain name and make that the new url. the old one will still work too...

Rex J. Covington said...

I like it! Keep up the great work!

cpa3485 said...

Fantastic!

Gary France said...

Chris – I just bought the domain name. In time, I will try to work out how to use it. LOL

Rex – Thanks and I will... !

Jimbo – Cheers, my friend!

Eve said...

Love it! Very discriptive of a good motorcycle ride! hahaha!

Gary France said...

Eve – Its simple, with a meaning that only bikers will probably understand and that is exactly why I chose it.

Chillertek said...

No name - there is one thing worse then grasshopper in your helmet it's bee sting in the neck at 90mph. Oh the humanity............

Canajun said...

Flies are better than June bugs which are really juicy and messy - yuch.

I like the new name, but shouldn't it be "Flies in my teeth"?

bluekat said...

Ha-ha - Great name! :)

I too, will have to figure out the name change thing - ah technology

Gary France said...

Chillertek – No doubt!

Canajun – June bugs sound horrible. I thought about using “Flies in my Teeth” but decided that sounded a bit to inward-looking and that many others would relate to the name if I used “your” instead.

bluekat – I am glad you like it. Don’t try to figure it out for too long as I have already written a post that explains how to do it. It will be posted soon!
