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.

NEW Corbin fastback "The Wall"

Corbin fastback "The Wall" - A BMC-Corbin 
joint design venture! 

 We call this newest incarnation of the classic Corbin fastback "The Wall" because of the impressive seven inches of vertical back support brought about by the raised tail section. Big Mike (of BMC Motorcycle Company fame) came to us for a series of seats with a taller and more vertical back area that would hold the rider in position more aggressively. Rumor has it he wanted this for stunt riders, but we've found this works extremely well for hot rodded bikes and cafe racers where a less reclined posture is desired. 


 As far as passengers are concerned, the tail of the Wall saddle is padded and upholstered to provide for short trips. Although this is built with the same quality foam material as the rider's area, the shaping is designed primarily for looks and rider back support. When taking a passenger make sure you tell them to hold on tight! 



 Up front, the ergonomically designed platform increases the area of body contact to disperse rider weight evenly and eliminate hot spots. Dished in the center to eliminate pressure on the
tail bone. At the nose of the saddle we sculpt it narrow to provide for good ground reach. 



 As always, our exclusive Comfort Cell® foam provides resilient co
