Madness Photography started as an official, serious company in 1998.
But the history of Madness Photography started long before. Onno “Berserk” Wieringa, founder and owner of Madness Photography, has been a self-taught photographer since he was a little kid and started to take pictures of something he loved since the day he was born: motorcycles!

His motorcycles
After he finished high school, he started working for various Harley-Davidson shops, where he learned to work on bikes. At the age of 17, he already owned two Triumph’s and when he was eighteen he had four Triumphs and a Suzuki GT 750. After getting his drivers license, when he was eighteen, the Triumphs all had to go and were replaced by a bike that he had wanted since the day he was born; a Harley-Davidson. This bike is still in his life; it’s an FXE-F 1200 Super Glide Fat Bob, which has been rebuild and modified endlessly and ridden for many miles. Going everywhere on the bike, there was one thing he always had in his pocket; his camera!
At the age of 23 he started drag racing, and he and his team named “Midnight Madness”, raced the bike on all the major races and drag strips all over Europe. He has competed in many classes; starting with the Street bikes, than Ultimate Street Bike, Super Stock, Pro-Stock, and then finally in the fastest gas burning class; Top Gas! Also again taking thousands of photo’s of everything interesting, at every racetrack! Being a racer for more than 18 years gave him insight in the world of fast bikes, and he’s still involved in the world of drag racing as a helper/mechanic and of course photographer / reporter.

Kawasaki "J” concept

Kawasaki "J” concept 

Tijdens de afgelopen Tokyo Motor Show, met als thema “Compete and Shape a new Future”, liet Kawasaki een aantal verrassende en nieuwe concept voertuigen zien van Japanse fabrikanten. Leidend daarin was Kawasaki Heavy Industries (KHI) met de onthulling van diverse op de toekomst gerichte technologieën, waarbij de focus lag op milieu, persoonlijk vervoer en efficiency. 

De combinatie van deze technologieën werd weergegeven in het “J” concept. Fantasierijk en vooruitkijkend in de toekomst van persoonlijk vervoer. Het J concept een verkent nieuwe mogelijkheden van een plezierig, makkelijk, handig en aanpasbaar vervoersmiddel.

“J is een mobiliteitssysteem voor de toekomst, dat zich aanpast naar behoeften. Van flexibel stadsverkeer tot sportief rijden. De onderscheidende kenmerken zijn het scherpe design en agressieve vormgeving, zoals we van de Kawasaki motorfietsen gewend zijn”, aldus de heer Shigehiko Kiyama, President KHI.   Verder haalde Kiyama nog de geavanceerde Kawasaki accu technologie naar voren, GIGACELL®, met een enorm hoge capaciteit.

De comfort modus van het J concept zal een ontspannen rijpositie bieden voor in de stad, waarbij de bestuurder in het voertuig staat en het spoor van de twee voorwielen breder wordt gezet voor maximale stabiliteit. 
In Sport modus zal het spoor versmallen en de rijhouding sportiever worden, waardoor de bestuurder één wordt met het voertuig en optimaal kan rijden. 

Managing Director van Kawasaki Motors Europe, de heer Yasushi Kawakami, juicht de gedachten achter de “J”  en deze visie op een bimodaal transportplatform van harte toe:

Dynojet Power Commander 5 series for 2014 models

Dynojet Power Commander 5 series for 2014 models.
Now at Motorcycle Storehouse

Fuel supply can make or break your riding experience. The stock ECU set-up will work, but it's far from perfect due to restrictive government regulations, something you'll notice when riding. When starting to tune your new bike, which includes basic things as fitting a free breathing air cleaner and exhaust mufflers, a good working fuel injection system becomes even more important. Dynojet has released brand new Power Commander 5 series fuel injection modules that are fully programmable to satisfy your bike's fuel needs, no matter if just lightly tuned or heavily modified. 

Power Commander 5 is available for all 09-14 Softail, Dyna, Touring, Sportster and V-Rod models. Tuning can be done with readily available downloadable maps, or you tune yourself by PC. As an option the AutoTune stystem is available. The Auto­tune will automatically tune your bike while riding and to maximize results two Wide Band O2 sensors are included to replace the stock Narrow Band sensors. 

A much better tuning result will be obtained then ever possible with the stock, low cost, sensors. The rider can even specify the AFR (Air Fuel Ratio) to tune for power, with more open throttle positions, or economic fuel consumption with more closed throttle positions like when cruising, these maps (race / cruise) can be selected by the flip of a toggle switch. 

To visualize it all you can, optionally, get the LCD Unit to show your, real-time, on-bike map adjustments, air/fuel ratio, data logging and more. 

Give your Motorcycle Storehouse dealer a call 
if you feel it’s time to upgrade your fuel injection system.
