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.

Gerechtshof doet uitspraak: Side Mount (kentekenplaat aan de zijkant van de motorfiets) monteren is niet toegestaan.

Side Mount (kentekenplaat aan de zijkant van de motorfiets) monteren is niet toegestaan.

Het mag niet vanwege het bepaalde in artikel 7, 6e lid van de Regeling kentekens en kentekenplaten, waarin staat dat de kentekenplaat loodrecht op het verticale mediaanvlak van het voertuig  moet zijn aangebracht (dus precies in het midden) en zich in verticale stand bevinden, met een tolerantie van 5%. Als de kentekenplaat niet aan die eis voldoet dan wordt deze door het Hof geacht niet behoorlijk zichtbaar te zijn. Zo bleek tijdens een zitting op 19 april 2017 van het Gerechtshof in Leeuwarden.

(Daarnaast heb ik in meerdere artikelen die ik over deze kwestie heb geschreven, al eerder genoemd dat de politie je hier ook een bekeuring voor kan geven omdat een Side Mount onder de noemer ‘Scherpe of gevaarlijk uitstekende delen’ kan vallen, en dus niet legaal is.)  

Kentekenplaat aan de zijkant is illegaal
