About Southsiders:  Two friends who were separated by their professional lives, came together to share their common passion for custom and classic motorcycles and created Southsiders & its blog five years ago.  The blog quickly snowballed with an increasingly international following, so English language was chosen over French to encourage and satisfy a wider audience, with equal importance place on quality images and words best portraying our lifestyle and friend encountered along the way.  Today Southsiders goes far beyond motorcycling and includes cars, fashion, art, design and surfing. http://www.wheels-and-waves.com/en/
