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.

Introduction on Sylt/Germany: Europe's first 32-Inch Bagger. 
Full metal custom Bagger by Fred and Len Kodlin!

The expectations were running high: Following his awesome "Outtalimits" Bagger, introduced at Velden Casino during European Bike Week 2013, it took another year to take some time beside the booming business to create another Kodlin Megabike. Len Kodlin sketched the design about a year ago, but a private tour during Mallorca Bike Week 2014 got Fred Kodlin together with German V-Twin motor tuner Guenther Sohn, who saw the sketches and agreed to build the Twin Cam engine. The "countdown" then ticked down to the date of introduction,
which would be April 25th 2015. The unveiling took place at one of the northernmost points of Germany: The island of Sylt. 


For decades, the "Sansibar" has been THE popular bar/restaurant/meeting point for the high society of Sylt. And since the sixties, Sylt has become Germany's must-be VIP island, where even international celebrities have appartments. The "Sansibar" rest far outside any of the towns, high in

Ongeluk op A12 achter file door langzaam rijdende motorrijders van Satudarah MC

Ongeluk op A12 achter file door langzaam rijdende motorrijders van Satudarah MC

Op de A12 bij Gouda zijn zaterdagochtend vijf auto's op elkaar gereden. Dat gebeurde achter aan een opstopping die was ontstaan door een stoet van ongeveer tweehonderd motorrijders.
Dat melden de politie en de ANWB.

Volgens een politiewoordvoerder was er sprake van een "verkeersstagnatie" door een groep van ongeveer tweehonderd langzaam rijdende motorrijders. De auto's botsten achterop de langzaam rijdende file. Bij het ongeval raakten drie mensen zwaargewond. Zij zijn zwaargewond naar het ziekenhuis gebracht. Er zijn volgens de politie geen Satudarah-leden bij het ongeval betrokken.

De motorrijders reden in optocht om zich te verzamelen bij Gouda. Van daaruit zouden ze naar Apeldoorn rijden. Daar is een herdenking van het uitroepen van de Republiek der Zuid-Molukken (RMS) in 1950.

Alle rijstroken werden rond 12.45 uur weer vrijgegeven. De snelweg was urenlang dicht in de richting van Den Haag tussen Bodegraven en Gouda. Er ontstond een flinke file, in de staart waarvan bij Harmelen ook nog een auto over de kop sloeg. Kort voor 13.00 uur is de A12 weer opengegaan. Er stond 2 kilometer verkeer ingesloten tussen de afrit Bodegraven en de plaats van het ongeluk. Voor de afrit naar de N11 bij Bodegraven stond nog eens 10 kilometer file, meldde de ANWB.
