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.

HOCO Parts Nieuws: Dunlop introduceert de SportSmart2

HOCO Parts Nieuws: Dunlop introduceert de SportSmart2 – de sportieve band

Dunlop’s nieuwste technologisch geavanceerde band voor sportmotorfietsen ontleent zijn naam aan SportSmart x SportSmart = SportSmart2. Deze band biedt comfort, superieur weggedrag, optimale grip op natte en droge ondergrond, lange levensduur. 

De uitdaging aangaan met Dunlop-technologieën, onder andere JLB, JLT en MT. 

- De nieuwe vorm van de voorband verbetert rijeigenschappen bij snel insturen en nauwkeurig volgen van lijnen, remstabiliteit in bochten en verlaagt de neiging tot shimmy.
- Het omgekeerde loopvlakprofiel in het midden van de voorband verbetert de waterafvoer met 20% voor nog betere prestaties onder natte omstandigheden
- De stalen JointLess Belt (JLB) in de voorband verhoogt wendbaarheid, stabiliteit en hogesnelheidscapaciteit (tot 300 km/u).
- De onafgeveerde massa is verlaagd waardoor de nieuwe voorband 7% lichter is dan bij de SportSmart. 

- De JointLess Belt (JLB) en JointLess Tread-technologie (JLT) in de achterband zorgt voor betere uniformiteit, minder trillingen, hogesnelheidscapaciteit (tot 300km/u.) en meer comfort. 
- Verbeterde grip en levensduur door het gebruik van Multi-Tread-technologie bij de achterband. Met een specifieke schoudercompound, gemaakt van 100% nieuwe silica, voor meer grip onder hellingshoek bij natte en droge omstandigheden. En een hardere middencompound voor een betere levensduur. 
- De onafgeveerde massa is verlaagd waardoor de nieuwe achterband tot 8% lichter is dan bij de SportSmart. 

De SportSmart2 prijzen liggen gelijk aan de SportSmart en is leverbaar in de volgende maten:

F17"110/70 R 1754HTL633047
  120/60 ZR 1755WTL631921
  120/70 R 1758HTL633123
  120/70 ZR 1758WTL631922
R17"150/60 R 1766HTL633048
