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.

Avon Motorcycle Tyres adds new Cobra touring sizes

Avon adds new Cobra touring sizes

Leading custom tire manufacturer Avon has added to its ever popular Cobra range of touring tires with two new fronts (130/60B19 and 130/60B21) and two new rears (160/70B17 and 180/55B18).

Avon has two new front and rear Cobra touring sizes

A firm favorite with custom shops, custom bike builders and performance custom engineers, Avon’s Cobras were introduced in 2007 as a replacement line for the venerable Venoms. Described as delivering “style and performance for cruisers, customs and tourers,” they are backed by Avon’s Road Hazard Warranty program and 15,000 mile warranty.
The construction is said to incorporate sports tire technology for nimble handling with a “special construction to deal with heavy loads.” They are said to have “incredible stability and longevity, making them perfect for touring with their snakeskin effect sidewalls and Cobra head on the shoulders adding a great custom styling touch to any V-twin.”


Noted as “ultra-quiet” tires, Avon offers extra wide sizes for custom applications in a wide range of sizes for Harley-Davidson’s V-Rod and V-Twin Baggers, Triumph’s Rocket III, Honda’s Goldwing and Valkyrie, as well as the sizes for custom bike applications.
Avon is currently also introducing a new size for Adventure sport models (150/70R18) and the Spirit ST - a new sport touring range.
