As See See Motor Coffee Co has grown throughout the years, so have the team members that help support our community. We are happy to announce our involvement with Babes in the Dirt for our 3rd year in a row and will be headed out April 25th to journey south where the dirt is sandy, the riding is fantastic and the skies are blue. Our Lady Team will consist of team rider and retail / ecom manager Emily George (on her 2015 250 Freeride KTM), team rider and retail events coordinator Paulina Morris (on her 2006 crf250x), team rider and Marketing / PR director Tori George (on her 2014 250exc-f KTM) and long time friends and supporters of See See Erica Price, Casey Lynch, Stevie Whipple and Kendra Adair.
What IS See See?
If the name sounds familiar its probably because we've been caffeinating and moto-vating ourselves and those around us for nearly 8 years now along with 10 years of The Motorcycle Show.
It's essentially a pretty cool coffee and motorcycle establishment that sells cool gear ( ATWYLD, Carhartt WIP, Schott, Biltwell, Black Arrow, Strange Vacation, Fox, Bell, Alpinestars, Roland Sands Designs, Brixton...etc etc) books, magazines and has a couple of workshops tucked away in the back where we occasionally pump out a couple of custom rides each year.
Founded by Thor Drake in 2009, See See was just a small shop on the industrial north side of Portland and was one of the first Poler Stuff and Biltwell dealers. He then partnered with George Kassapakis in 2011 to make it what it is today, See See is not just a brand, but an idea of community that cultivates inclusivity and excitement throughout the 2-wheeled world. See See has partnered with badass companies over the years throwing events like The One Moto Show, races like Dirtquake USA, art shows like 21 Helmets and all around "good-times" for folks to enjoy.
What's with the LOGO?
Founder and Co-owner Thor Drake had a strange dream years ago and built a name and brand around it. The logo was a hat tip to the fact that motorcycles make him very happy. A lot of stuff at the time was all about skulls and being ultra tough: we just wanted to make something different and fun. We came up the See See name to be less motorcycle-centric, but also refers to the style of bikes we like: metric or "cc" bikes. The "See See" also comes from the eyes on the logo.
Our locations found us- both in Portland and in Reno - We don't have deep pockets or investors of any sort, so thats a huge factor in where we landed. We're located in the heart of the growing eastside of Portland and in Reno we're paving the way for an amazing upcoming arts and food district in a creative and historically fun city. We're open for biz Monday through Sundays to get your coffee, beer, wine, hot dog fix!
