We have some retail, snacks, beers and beverages and more. Located near Greenlake a couple of blocks up from Triumph of Seattle. 7701 Aurora Ave N. Seattle Wa 98103.
It’s going to be warm and sunny and we will have the outside area set-up so you can enjoy a view of your motorcycle and a cold beverage. We are also having our first ever Pinball Competition on our new to us Evel Knievel machine! Winner takes home a New Backfire Moto Tee!
Check your battery, add some air and dust off your ride ! It's been a long hard winter and next week it's time to take to the streets and exercise your freedom again. Backfiremoto number 84 is the Spring Opener and the weather is looking decent. PLEASE help spread the word by sharing this with your friends. It really helps! Backfiremoto Spring Opener Year Eleven, event #84. Rain or shine, All bikes welcome, 4pm-10pm March 20th 2019 , @ The shop 2233 6th ave. South in "SODO" .
BREAKING NEWS! We are proud to announce that Backfiremoto has secured a Moto-friendly building that is centrally located on Aurora Ave. N. near Greenlake.
Eventually, it will house a small cafe and a facility to hold smaller events and shows.(we will still be having our Premier event in Sodo as usual) Presently , we are offering a much-needed Seattle service in one part of the building. INDOOR MOTORCYCLE STORAGE. Please share this to let your friends know about the service. We offer reasonable rates and they go towards a great cause. CLICK ON THE LINK BELOW to learn more and or reserve a dry, safe home for your motorcycle /scooter. Thanks and stay tuned for more info as it develops!
Here is the basic run down. It is 125.00 a month for the basic storage. Yes, that includes a battery tender if you supply it with a port. THE FIRST MONTH move in special is $95.00. If you pay in advance (3 months) it is 300.00. Why are we doing storage? Let me tell you. After 11 years of doing this event. And 25 years of organizing moto community events .... it is our dream to pull it together and have an everyday cafe / bar / meeting place that is focused on our Backfiremoto community. We will still be doing the Large-scale events at the other location but this will be something new that will coincide with the large-scale events. The Storage will provide a needed service absent currently in Seattle and enable Backfiremoto to occupy the building while we take our time to build it out. Thanks and I hope this clears up some questions. http://www.backfiremoto.com/storage.html
