  • Flogging a Water Buffalo to Near Death, Right in My Own Neighborhood!

    I got involved in a great discussion of various cars and bikes at Eric Peters' wonderful site Eric Peters Autos, and it inspired to me to dig up this old photo of yours truly on my Suzuki GT750 "Water Buffalo", knee down in full leathers, enjoying a little "wreckless driving", ha!

  • Paul Lima

    When Paul was little he used to bring his bigger friends in a band called The Skullbusters around to our party pad in the south forty of our Casa de Oro home to make a lot of noise. our parents didn't care, but holy cow how the neighbors must have hated it! Oh well, the joke's on them.

  • Southsiders present: Wheels & Waves - Third Edition

    Brian Bent took a little sojourn to France a few months back, and here's a tasty little bit showing what he and his mates were up to:

    The dream we had one day to bring together all the people we love around our passion for custom motorcycles has become more real than ever.

    More than two months have passed since the third edition of Wheels and Waves, and we are only just landing back on planet Earth. As summer 2014 slowly comes to an end, we’re proud to release our official video : a seven-minute long edit that will take you back into the epic journey we all shared as family and friends.

    Last June, a tremendous number of participants travelled from all over Europe and beyond, to reach the emblematic meeting point of the Biarritz lighthouse. If moto and custom are the two main vehicles celebrated at Wheels and Waves by the majority of people, we can hardly describe the event as a pure moto festival. All crossover and young communities are attracted (surf, skate, bmx) as they look for new ways to express their individuality.

    As Wheels and Waves grows bigger with the years, we want to keep pushing boundaries and will give great importance to creativity but also enthusiasm and spontaneity.

    Stay tuned as more is to come !


    Le rêve que nous avons eu un jour de réunir une communauté d'individus passionnés comme nous par la moto custom et l'univers qui y est lié devient plus réel que jamais. Plus de deux mois se sont écoulés depuis la troisième édition de Wheels and Waves et nous reposons tout juste les pieds sur terre.

    Alors que l'été touche doucement à sa fin, nous sommes fiers de vous présenter notre vidéo officielle : un film de sept minutes à travers lequel vous replongerez dans la troisième édition de notre réunion annuelle - et quel event !!

    Cette année, un nombre encore plus impressionnant de participants est venu des quatre coins d'Europe et même plus loin, pour atteindre le point de rendez vous emblématique du phare de Biarritz.
    Il est difficile de qualifier Wheels and Waves comme un événement purement moto, même si la moto et le custom sont un vecteur commun à la majorité des participants. Nous avons vu cette année que les cultures surf, skate et même bmx étaient largement représentées, et que Wheels and Waves attirait une jeunesse en quête de nouveaux moyens d'expression.

    Alors que Wheels and Waves grandit au fil des années, nous le voulons ouvert et reflet des tendances actuelles. Nous continuerons à repousser nos limites et à privilégier la créativité, l'enthousiasme et la spontanéité.

    Restez connectés, la suite est à venir !
