Seth San Filippo has had a lifelong passion for motorcycles from a young age. He started on a super cool Mickey Thompson mini bike (that he still has and rides), and quickly graduated to dirt bikes—forming sketchy jumps, scars, and the two-member “Daredevil Club” with his cousin Everest.
Nowadays, Seth might be found roaming the logging roads and trails on a long Oregon summer day looking for abandoned fire lookouts on his KLR650. In the winter, he may be in Baja, Mexico with his DRZ400 in search of stellar desert riding, spearfishing, and delicious tacos. In between he could be in a vintage enduro race on his 74’ Suzuki TS250, blowing off steam leaning into the back road corners on his Harley Springer, or competing in the one-day, 100-mile, off-road, Gambler mini bike rally.
Maybe he has been called the “crazy cat lady of motorcycles” because he has six of them in the garage, but maybe there is still room for one more. After all, there are seven days in a week…
Basically, Seth is happiest and feels the most alive and free on two wheels in far away places, with music in his helmet speakers and his soul singing. So when he heard about Rally For Rangers on his favorite podcast, Adventure Rider Radio, the cause and the adventure called to him. Seth is beyond excited and honored to be a part of the team and to do his part to help protect the wild places that he cherishes so much.
When Seth is not out adventuring on a motorcycle or with his amazing kids Finn (14) and Anna (12), he is very busy as the owner of Urban Lumber Co. (urbanlumber.co) and Urban Hardwoods (urbanhardwoods.com) where he and his crew build beautiful custom furniture from salvaged city trees of the Pacific Northwest.
