Fascinated with motorcycles from a young age, 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. Um, ok. Anyway, the road less traveled was definitely responsible for leading Courtney, born a Hoosier and raised a Tarheel, to Oregon. After learning the law in Eugene, Courtney made his way to Portland where he settled down with a supportive spouse and a sweet little son and daughter. His first motorcycle was an ’81 CB750 Super Sport, which he got in trade for a beer. He’s a self-described “Kevin Cameron of Chemical Cures” and his stable of bikes reflects a scrounger lifestyle and fondness for time capsules; current bikes include a Street Triple R, GPz550 (first year), ’69 AS2C, ‘73 RD350, ‘86 VF500F (is this getting weird yet?), and an ‘82 RM250 “RMotard.” A sucker for a good story, Courtney moonlights as a moto-journalist. Watch out for S.C.M.O.D.S.
