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.

E.J. Cole Antique Motorcycle Auction

E.J. Cole Antique Motorcycle Auction

Only a few motorcycle collectors have seen the E.J. Cole collection in Texas, but most would agree it's one of the oldest and finest when you are talking early American antique motorcycles.

 Cole has been hunting, picking and collecting for decades, and started early so things like his Merkel and Cyclone racers, the rarest of the rare, are in the group. 

And it's up for auction at the MECUM E.J. Cole sale in Las Vegas, March 20 and 21. Here's a link you can go to and review over 200 motorcycles that will be available. E.J. Cole Auction.

Öhlins H- D ‘Blackline’ range

Öhlins launches H- D ‘Blackline’ range 

ÖHLINS has moved away from its characteristic yellow and gold designs for the launch of its Blackline range of products for Harley-Davidson applications.

The new Öhlins Blackline shocks are available for H-D twin shock machines. Available in ‘dividing piston’ and piggyback versions, the shocks can be ordered with a number of different damping adjustment options, with or without length adjustment.
For the front end, the FKC fork cartridge kit has been designed to offer a high-end cartridge damping system for FLH and FLT models. Using an 8mm steel shaft, an aluminium damper tube and 25mm pistons, the system features Öhlins’ NIX technology; rebound damping in one
leg, and compression damping in the other - maximising the damping that is available within the confined diameter of the fork legs.

Robert Brinkmark, Öhlins Product Manager Motorcycles says, “Developing Öhlins shocks for the Harley-Davidson market has been an important focus for us and we are proud to launch the first of many products for Harley-Davidson bikes. The focus has been on riding comfort and high quality for these shocks to further improve the ride feeling. The new striking design is also a result of our increased focus for the custom market.  
“Our range of twin shocks offer an unsurpassed ride for these often heavier, fully loaded motorcycles, giving all day comfort in the saddle, crucial for riders of these machines.”
