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.

The 2014 Motus Sportbikes and MV4 Engine Debut at the US Grand Prix at Laguna Seca
-Motus MST series of comfortable American sportbikes begin initial production
Monterey, CA (7/23/2013) - Motus, makers of the only American V4 sportbikes, revealed the much-anticipated 2014 MST production motorcycles in Monterey, CA at the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca July 19-21. Two years after first showing prototypes at Laguna Seca, Motus returned with production vehicles and a growing dealer network.

The 2014 Motus MST series was revealed at the US Grand Prix in Monterey to an incredibly enthusiastic crowd of fans and supporters. Special thanks to the gracious staff at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca, our dealers and staff that helped at the display, and all our vendors working so hard to meet production goals. 

The Motus MST and MSTR are built for comfort on longer rides, but also have another side. Powered by the mighty MV4 Baby Block engine, the MSTs feature lightweight, responsive chassis and race-spec components to thrill even the most experienced riders on twisty mountain roads or coastal highways.

“As street riders, we wanted the Motus to offer an unparalleled experience from 20-90 mph, where we do almost all our riding. With a quick sprocket change, the MSTs are geared for 204 mph top speed, but the focus has been on making massive torque in a usable street range, from 2500 rpm to 7500 rpm,” said Brian Case, co-founder and Director of Design for Motus. “We also built in a sensible riding position, adjustable windscreen and controls, and other accommodations for longer rides.”

Motus has a growing network of 16 high-quality dealers from Seattle to Miami with the goal of adding additional dealers in Southern California, the Midwest and the Northeast. Commercial and retail financing is in place, motorcycle insurance is commonly available, and the MSTs offer a competitive 2-year, unlimited mileage warranty. 2014 MST’s and MSTR’s will begin shipping this fall to dealers and customers reserving them now
