See See Motorcycles | More Than Just a Destination

Words by Tori George-Drake

See See Motorcycles tasks ourselves year round to bring our fans more than just a place to meet up, drink coffee and purchase motorcycle gear.  We put a lot of effort into bringing a smile to their faces when it comes to two-wheeled festivities as well. With events ranging from the silly and controlled chaos of Dirt Quake USA to the ever growing and industry shifting One Motorcycle Show, both bringing factory designers, racers, moto enthusiasts and friends from all over the world in one place, it's hard not to smile if you've ever attended any of our events.

In between organizing and planning for these annual motorcycle festivities we like to keep ourselves busy by supporting local MX, Flat-track, and Road Race tracks. Keeping true to our ethos in keeping motorcycles fun, we attend racing, support new up and coming local racers and we race and although we take the sport of motorcycling very serious, we try not to take ourselves too seriously!  We’ve got a need for speed whether it be out on the trails, on the track or hot laps on mini bikes in the parking lot.

If you know Thor Drake, founder of See See and The One Motorcycle Show, you know he can never stand still.  So why stop at just one See See Motor Coffee Cafe? No, not happening. The team put our heads down and worked hard to give Reno a shot…. Our second location landed in a rad old historical brick building smack dab in the middle of the art centric and thriving Mid-town and the old historic gambling culture of Downtown Reno. A lot of folks ask “but why The Biggest-Little-City in the world?”  All we can say is that Reno has that soul… that soul that Portland had 10-20 years ago, that soul of a city that is real, the food is real, the people are real, the outdoors and the riding are really real and well we just related to the city instantly. It doesn’t hurt that you can gamble or drink all night long if that’s your thing.  Reno is also home of Street Vibrations, an annual motorcycle festival that’s been held for over 25 years.  It’s a celebration music, metal and motorcycles and motorcycle riding in what Mark Twain once said is “the fairest picture the whole earth affords”  and See See will be partnering with Street Vibrations in adding a flat-track race for 50,000 spectators it’s a race and festival that will get some revival and is not to be missed!! Be sure to mark your calendars to visit the second See See and Reno Sept. 27th- Oct. 1st 2017! 

See See Motorcycles is also proud to announce it's newest addition in Portland, See See KTM of Portland. The Dealership is only blocks away from the cafe and is the very first KTM dealership within Portland city limits and well it’s been known that where there be the color orange, there be fun. If you’re in the Northwest we highly recommend grabbing a coffee from the cafe and strolling down Sandy blvd to check out all the new 2017 KTM models.

See See Motorcycles is Coming to Babes in the Dirt 3

Events, SponsorsAshmore Ellis

If you attended last year's Babes in the Dirt then you remember the ladies of See See Motorcycles hosting the mini bike races (how much fun was that?!) and creating one of the most fun moments as we watched a ton of ladies turn left for the first time in their lives. We are thrilled to announce that See See Motorcycles will be back at Babes in the Dirt 3 to bring you a new and improved mini bike race! But first, what is See See Motorcycles and how did it get its start? Take a deeper dive with Tori Drake and find out how a dream turned into reality by way of a few like minded friends in pursuit of having fun on two wheels (something we can totally relate to).

"When See See Motor Coffee Co was asked to come back for another dose of Babes in the Dirt again we couldn't say no. With last years results bringing nothing but smiles we couldn't stay away.  Team See See will be back out there building up a track for the mini flat track races this year along with a full set of electric mini steads in tow" - Tori Drake 

See See started as a lifestyle first, then quickly grew into a communal space, and soon thereafter a brand & platform for many to follow in suit and to be inspired by. It has been a blast to see communities, like ours in Portland, grow together in other cities across the country and come together to learn more about what makes you smile on a motorbike. Hopefully our logo is starting to make some sense these days
haha.  

See See Motor Coffee and the show we throw each year (The One Motorcycle Show) was and always will be a grassroots movement created to keep motorcycling alive and well in the Pacific Northwest.  In an area where nine months out of the year it rains, it pours, and the old man definitely snores... See See wanted to create a community that could reach out to a network of people and riders that had never met or had a place to do so.

See See carries a ton of moto and lifestyle brands

We have a very unique setup here with our motorcycle centric space, we combine engines and espresso all under one roof. We love our regulars, and our first timers! If you've never been in, make sure to stop by and check us out in Portland OR and Reno NV.
