Woodbury Moto Media was founded by yours truly Nolan Woodbury; long time Arizona resident and the youngest of four brothers. Leo and Joy moved the family from frosty Iowa into the desert early 1966, possessions packed all over dad’s ’61 Electra and a Harley Knucklehead in tow. Within a short time our family-owned cutting tool business was established, and that proved a handy mix with our strong motorcycle appetite. Proud of my family and its 65-year history of fabrication, the lessons learned inside those walls proved critical to the journals I’ve written.
Encouraged to read, I became enamored with Gordon Jennings, and through him the decades of excellence and inspiration displayed by Cycle magazine editors Cook Neilson and Phil Schilling. Dave Minton, Bruno de Prato and others opened other continents, and the desire to express my own words was only rivaled by the desire for my favored machine. I’ve found a home on the Moto Guzzi brand and the investment holds fast, but not at the expense of other interests. The whole of motorcycling history holds many amazing stories, and I delight in picking them out.
As of September 14th 2019, Fox News editor Merry Lucero will become Mrs. Merry Moreno-Woodbury. A cracking writer, Merry’s video experience can fill that content need. I’m also joined by son Alex Woodbury, who parlays his gift with both the wrench and camera into striking results. So. Cal racer Bill Ross also contributes, in-between tending his bird farm and record-breaking Eagles. So for now we’ll beg forgiveness as we restore the pages onto this new platform, then expand it further. Our goal is entertaining content and history researched, reaffirmed then reported. With a personal twist.
