Courtney from Sacramento, California is our February 2014 cover model, who our good friend and photographer Doug Mitchel shot on Ken Steenrod’s 2001 Harley-Davidson Ultra Classic.


Courtney is a model and trade show hostess, and when asked about her future goals and ambitions, she said “I still have goals in the modeling world that I would like to reach. I would also like to go back to school and finish my Master’s, and then open a business. When asked about hobbies, Courtney told us “I enjoy hiking, shopping, going to the beach, playing with the doggies, painting, and I LOVE ethnic foods and trying new restaurants and recipes.”

Courtney told us that honesty, humor, confidence (not cockiness) and ambition are turn-ons for her, and on the flip-side, she told us she is turned off by those who are fake and trying to be something they are not. She also said that materialism and guys who wear skinny jeans (LOL) is also a turn off for her. Courtney also admitted that she’s a sucker for dark hair, blue eyes, and dimples, and describes her personality as “Outgoing, an observer, crazy (in a good way), a sweetheart (unless you piss me off), motivated, ambitious, and a dreamer. Live and let live!” When asked what people say is her best attribute, Courtney said “There are a few of them. LOL.”

When asked what the smartest thing is she has ever done, Courtney said “Getting my degree and quitting a “real job” I hated to pursue my dreams.” When asked about the most stupid thing she’s ever done, she said “I would rather not talk about it. LOL.”

Just for fun, we asked Courtney to share some of her favorite things with our readers:

Favorite color: Green
Favorite food: I love seafood, Indian, Japanese, and Persian.
Favorite drink (non-alcoholic): Orange, pineapple, and banana juice.
Favorite drink (alcoholic): I don’t drink.
Favorite restaurant: Mastro’s.
Favorite actor: Ray Liotta
Favorite actress: Angelina Jolie
Favorite TV show: I don’t watch much TV, but I sometimes find myself watching Law and Order marathons.
Favorite movie: I have SO many!
Favorite band/artist: Again, way too many to pick one. I love music and have so many favorites, from so many genres.
Do you have pets? Yes. I have doggies.
Do you ride? Yes, I’ve ridden many times on the back, and only once by myself.”
What is your most memorable riding experience? Sturgis! The scenery was gorgeous and make even more amazing by experiencing it on a bike.
Which motorcycle rallies & events have you attended, and which is your favorite? Sturgis and Daytona Bike Week. I have been on a bikini team, bartended, and did promotional work at both, and I LOVED Sturgis. I didn’t get much sleep, but it was so much fun, I met some amazing people, and it was an unforgettable experience!”
Tell us about your tattoos. I only have one. I have a small Japanese character on the back of my neck. I would like more though.

Thanks for the interview Courtney, and thank you for doing such a great job on our February 2014 cover!
