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.

SOMERSET, WIS, APRIL 11 — Lengthy road trips can require more storage than saddlebags, tour trunks or luggage provide. A pull-behind trailer offers the convenience of bringing everything needed to enjoy weeks, or even months, on the road. The new Receiver Hitch and Trailer Wiring and Relay Harnesses from Kuryakyn® ensure smooth sailing and worry-free load application on Harley-Davidson® Touring models equipped with CAN-bus electrical systems.

The Kuryakyn Receiver Hitch (P/N 7657) includes black powder-coated mounting brackets, chrome-plated ball mount and a chrome-plated 1-7/8” ball. Brackets and ball mount are constructed from sturdy forged and welded steel for durability. The ball mount utilizes a unique dual receiver design that engages the mounting brackets vertically on both sides of the rear wheel for maximum structural support. The ball mount can be installed in either of two height positions depending on fender configuration. Remove the ball mount when not in use and the receiver hitch remains hidden for a clean and virtually unnoticeable appearance. Bolt-on installation for all ’14-’17 Harley-Davidson Electra Glides, Road Glides, Road Kings and Street Glides requires simple hand tools.
MSRP: $289.99

Kuryakyn Trailer Wiring and Relay Harness Kits are available separately to safely and effectively apply the trailer’s lighting load to the battery rather than the bike’s electrical system. The harnesses utilize input from the motorcycle to direct power from the battery to the appropriate trailer lighting circuit, eliminating the potential to overload stock lighting or accessory outlets.

Wiring and Relay Harnesses are available in 5 Wire Plus 1 or 4 Wire Plus 1 kits for standard 5-wire output (run, brake, right turn, left turn, ground), or 4-wire output (run, left turn/brake, right turn/brake, ground). Each kit includes a bonus wire that connects as needed to provide fused 12-volt power to the trailer for compartment lights or keyless entry systems wired independently of the trailer’s essential lighting.
