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.

Corbin Fleetliner Fairing for Triumph Thunderbird LT/Commander

Corbin Introduces Fleetliner Fairing
 for Triumph Thunderbird LT/Commander
Hollister, CA - Corbin has had a lot of rider requests for a Thunderbird fairing with long range in mind...The result is the new Fleetliner fairing. Designed to fit the Commander and LT models, it provides excellent wind protection with a traditional look. Comes prepainted and color matched to your Triumph paint so it's ready for immediate installation. 

Subtle details like the center rib and sculpted line of the wings add to the visual appeal. Crafted to work with the air flow to provide more stability to the front end while relieving rider fatigue. Another example of form and function expertly combined in Corbin fashion. 

Corbin started with a fairing shape similar to designs you've seen on cruiser models, but improved the design to provide better aerodynamics. Notice how the shape of the fairing starts at the headlights and flows back to part the wind more gracefully. This transfers the highest
pressure area back to the steering pin which gives greater stability at speed. This shape also brings the slipstream "bubble" further back to get you out of the wind. 

As the fairing is designed to slip through the wind, it creates less turbulence and buffeting which gives you a quieter and smoother ride than the standard plexiglass windshield. Naturally this stability and low pressure slipstream for the rider helps to relieve fatigue associated with long days on the highway. It also helps to lower wind noise which adds to the comfort value. 

Constructed of Corbin’s Fibertech material for a smooth clean finish and durability, the Fleetliner fairing is available in either solid color or two-tone paint schemes to coordinate with your stock Triumph paint. 

Topped off with a smoked windscreen for a beautiful piece that is ready to install right out of the box. Speaking of the windscreen, our fairing will actually work with just about any windscreen or wind deflector designed for the 1997-2006 Harley-Davidson FLHTC model fairings. This will allow you to easily customize the performance to your stature. A local Harley dealer can show you a selection of H-D and aftermarket models or just run with the cool dark-smoke model that is included. If you are a taller rider and prefer a little more wind protection, Corbin offers an
