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.

Latest News in the Custom Bike World



Kicking off the year in style at the first major bike show of the year, Honda has confirmed that a number of its eagerly anticipated new models will be on display at the Carole Nash MCN London Motorcycle Show.

Honda Neo Sports Café-styled CB1000R

Offering something for all tastes, the new long-distance, expedition-focused Africa Twin Adventure Sports heads the Honda pack, alongside the Neo Sports Café-styled CB1000R, its smaller sibling, the CB125R and, at the luxury, touring end of the scale, Honda’s all-new Gold Wing.

Honda Goldwing

Both the Africa Twin Adventure Sports and Gold Wing are fresh from global press launches where MCN described the former, with its increased capacity fuel tank, throttle by wire, longer travel suspension and expanded torque control system as a ‘mile-munching grand tourer’ and ‘one of the most confidence-inspiring adventure bikes.’ 

The all-new, sharper, more compact, tech-loaded Gold Wing is about to hit showrooms and had praise heaped on it by Carole Nash: ‘Honda has raised the bar for luxury touring and discovery and it puts the Gold Wing fairly back on the mantle as king of the open road.’

Honda Afrika Twin

Arriving in dealerships in the spring, the CB1000R is sure to excite, delivering a 20% power to weight ratio improvement on its predecessor, alongside a package including multiple riding modes with different combinations of power and engine braking, Honda Selectable Torque Control and a state-of-the-art throttle by wire engine management system. The CB1000R will sit alongside the CB125R, a bike for new riders that echoes the Neo Sports Café styling of the CB1000R.

The Multistrada 1260, will join the Multistrada 950 and Multistrada 1200 Enduro on display.

The Monster family celebrates its 25th anniversary with the new Monster 821. The 821 is updated with various aesthetic nods to the original Monster and takes on many of the improvements already in situ with the Monster 1200. Visitors will also be able to see the Monster 1200 and 797 on display.
