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.

• Nieuwe, veelzijdige allroad: comfortabele toermotor met uitstekende enduro-eigenschappen
• Nu te bestellen, vanaf februari bij de officiële Guzzi-dealer
Moto Guzzi heeft de nieuwe V85 TT geprijsd. De compleet nieuwe allroad binnen het modelgamma van Moto Guzzi is met ingang van 2019 te bestellen voor € 13.695*. Vanaf februari staat de V85 TT bij de officiële dealers en is hij een perfect alternatief voor Guzzi-liefhebbers die naast toeren zo nu en dan ook eens de ongebaande paden willen opzoeken.

 Moto Guzzi V85 TT heeft een prijs: € 13.695

Met de V85 TT breidt Moto Guzzi het programma uit met een compleet nieuwe V-twin en blaast het merk een rijke en avontuurlijke offroad-historie nieuw leven in met een moderne interpretatie van de klassieke enduro.

Twee gezichten: comfortabele toermotor en robuuste offroader
Het frame van de V85 TT is volledig nieuw en bestaat uit stalen buizen om het zo licht, rationeel en toegankelijk mogelijk te maken. De verankering van het motorblok wordt daarbij benut om een stevige structuur te vormen met de nodige precisie en stijfheid voor op het asfalt en de robuustheid en bijpassende rijeigenschappen offroad. De monoshock is direct aan het chassis bevestigd, rechts aan de dwarsdraagarm, zodat de hydraulische instellingen en veervoorspanning gemakkelijk kunnen worden aangepast. De ophanging biedt dankzij een royale veerweg en flinke bodemvrijheid optimale prestaties in het terrein, en optimaal comfort voor twee in het dagelijkse verkeer.

Nieuwe ‘acht-en-een-half’
Het kloppende hart van de V85 TT is een 853cc luchtgekoelde 90o V-twin
