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.

Remus introduceert een nieuw type demper: 
REMUS 8 – De nieuwe standaard voor tour motoren

Met de splinternieuwe REMUS 8 demper heeft de REMUS R&D afdeling een nieuwe standaard gezet voor tour motoren.

Het interieurdesign van de innovatieve demper biedt een groot expansie volume waardoor het vermogen en koppel stijgt in combinatie met het bekende, diepe REMUS geluid. Het geluid blijft binnen het toelaatbare en de demper wordt geleverd met goedkeuringspapieren. 

Ondanks het grote volume van de REMUS 8 garandeert het slanke design eenvoudige montage van standaard zijkoffers.

De conische, 8 hoekige demper is beschikbaar met RVS-Mat en RVS-Zwart mantel, is intern volledig uit RVS vervaardigd en is voorzien van een carbon eindkap.

De REMUS 8 wordt beschikbaar voor tour motoren en als eerste voor de BMW R1200GS model 2017.

Voor de BMW R1200GS met REMUS 8 stijgt het vermogen en koppel over het hele toerenbereik en neemt het gewicht af met ruim 1 kg. Uiteraard blijft de R1200GS met de REMUS 8 voldoen aan de Euro 4 normen.

De REMUS 8 is leverbaar vanaf € 869,99 inclusief BTW bij de beter gesorteerde motordealer. Kijk op, ‘Like’ Hoco Parts en blijf op de hoogte van het laatste nieuws!

Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time. Here at RSD, we like to get lost. Often.

While the job of designing and creating custom motorcycle parts is a dream to some, at RSD we are fortunate enough to do it on the daily.  The parts found within this section of Roland’s Garage are either one-off’s or small batch runs of a special kind of custom parts.  They’re parts that aren’t ready to be produced en mass, but parts that refill the creative lifeblood of RSD. An outward expression of our desire to do things the way we want with no limitations, we promise you wont find these anywhere else in the world.  

Roland’s design process ensures riding related items such-as leather jackets, gloves or even helmets are crafted by the most skilled artisans from the best available materials. The selection of those materials, patterning and design process all hinge on Roland’s personal direction for each individual piece. The result of that process leads him to create singularly exclusive pieces.  In this section of Roland’s Garage you’ll find one-off’s that were once previously reserved only for his personal closet, now they can be yours. But hurry up, once he finds out we’ve been raiding his personal collection they’ll be gone quick! 
Your garage, it’s your creative space. Your zen den. In it you do anything from work on your motorcycle to share laughs with friends. Regardless of what’s taking place within those four walls though, the need for visual stimulation, creativity and inspiration are paramount. From Roland’s Garage to yours, in this section you’ll find anything ranging from custom bike matts to wall banners all designed with spurring on your creative energy.
