Fascinated with motorcycles from a young age, but forestalled from owning one until 2003, Courtney is making up for lost time. After all, motorcycling can buy time — time to eliminate distraction, focus on the senses, and enjoy solitude, or, make new friends, discover diversions, and of course take the road less traveled. Whoa there, Mister Sartre. At any rate, the road less traveled was definitely responsible for leading Courtney, born a Hoosier and raised a Tarheel, to Oregon. After living in Eugene and learning the law, Courtney made his way to Portland where he settled down with a supportive spouse and a sweet little son. His stable of bikes reflects a scrounger lifestyle and fondness for time capsules. His first was an ’81 CB750 Super Sport, which he got in trade for a beer. Self-described “Kevin Cameron of Chemical Cures”. Current bikes in the quiver include a Street Triple R, GPz550 (first year), ’69 AS2C, ’79 YZ250 racebike, TC90 tiny hooligan, “RDT” 360, and an IT465 “retro motard.” A sucker for a good story, Courtney moonlights as a moto-journalist. Watch out for S.C.M.O.D.S.
