MADNESS PHOTOGRAPHY

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.

S&S rebuilds stock engines

S&S rebuilds stock engines

Following Harley-Davidson's decision to discontinue its factory engine remanufacturing program, S&S Cycle have issued a timely reminder that their rebuild program is available to authorized Harley-Davidson as well as S&S dealers, and that the program is for remanufacturing of H-D (stock or modified) as well as S&S engines.


The company says that they offer a fast ten working day turn-around from receipt and that you get the same engine back, meaning that you get to keep the original VIN. 




Engines are rebuilt with Premium Viola V-Twin service parts and can be rebuilt to stock specifications or have an S&S performance kit installed, with existing performance upgrades retained if they are still serviceable. 
S&S say that their rebuild program features a 30 day labor and one year parts warranty, and that their beneficial freight rates mean that they offer no cost shipping to their dealers on engines for rebuilding.

Traditionally only available to S&S dealers, if you do not currently have an S&S Cycle account, no problem, because the company says that an engine rebuild package meets or exceeds their annual account spend criteria.

Corbin Gunfighter Saddle for 2014 Honda Gold Wing Valkyrie

Corbin Introduces Gunfighter Saddle 
for 2014 Honda Gold Wing Valkyrie

Hollister, CA - Corbin’s new Gunfighter saddle is comfortable on a long trip while it looks great cruising the boulevard. They started with their exclusive high density Comfort Cell foam that allows a sleek profile while providing a firm, supportive ride. Then sculpt the rider seating ergonomically to fit the curve of your body and provide better weight distribution. This also helps to eliminate the centralized pressure felt from the stock seat. In the nose area, Corbin sculpted the saddle narrow to allow for ground reach.

For a solo look, the Gunfighter tail section is shaped to emulate the lines of the bodywork with a fastback tail section. On the inside, the tail is padded and upholstered to provide for short trip passenger capability. Although the shaping of the tail is designed primarily for looks, the Comfort Cell foam still provides a good perch for your copilot on short to medium length trips.
Notice how close the Corbin saddle fits to the tank, tail section and chassis... this kind of fit comes only from a Corbin saddle and their unique Fibertech basepan. Corbin’s rigid base material not only fits perfect to the bike, but provides a firm foundation to support the carefully designed foam shape. Corbin's ergonomic shaping creates a visually pleasing look on
the motorcycle and adds to the custom appeal. Over time, the exclusive foam material will break in for a personalized fit to your body.



Included on top is your choice of genuine leather seating panels in a wide range of colors and textures. The images show Black natural grain leather seating with a Black welt and Asphalt vinyl contrasting sides and tail for clean, sporty looks. You can also choose from a range of color options by special order at no additional charge!



Corbin uses genuine leather seating in all of their saddle models because it breathes with your body and will conform along with the foam shape during break in. This provides an added bit of luxury on those long rides. In the side panels, we use a coordinating vinyl material that will support the foam shape and keep the saddle looking sharp longer.
Corbin’s seat rides on rubber bumpers to protect your paint job and the single piece base mounts to your bike using a tongue in the front and a two bolts into y
