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.

Biker Fest Italy

Biker Fest, Italy, May 18 - 21

The 6th annual Italian Motorcycle Championship will take place at the 31st Biker Fest in Lignano Sabbiadoro, Udine, Italy, on the spectacular Adriatic coast north of Venice, May 18 – 21.

 The Italian Championship is the culmination of a 12-event network of custom bike shows held throughout Italy and promoted by Italian custom bike magazine Biker’s Life.

It will be staged again on the impressive Terrazza Mare, with over 602 bikes from across Italy expected to compete for top honors – including expenses paid entry to next year’s AMD World Championship of Custom Bike Building at INTERMOT ‘Customized’, in Germany in October 2018.
Classes will include Freestyle, Modified Harley-Davidson, Metric, Streetfighter/Sportsbike, Cafe Racer, Scrambler, Bagger and Old Style classes, with the three ‘Best in Show’ winners receiving 1,000 Euro expenses towards competing at ‘AMD XIII’.

Last year’s winner was MC Cycles with “Avalon”, a beautifully modified and finished Harley-Davidson FXR, Energy Bike with “Ducati DSA”, an ultra-radical Ducati Monster 620, and PDF Motociclette with “Big Kahuna”, a 1927 Harley-Davidson JD 8-valve.
With a larger vendor presence expected at the event this year, an expanded additional “customizer” vendor area will be set up opposite the Terrazza (in addition to the usual vendor lot at Luna Park) with opportunities for builders and custom shops to present their work – last year this new feature was judged to be a great success.

Public attendance at last year’s 30th anniversary event exceeded 35,000 riders. Exhibitors included Custom Chrome Europe, Motorcycle Storehouse, Free Spirits, Italian suspension specialists Andreani and Bitubo, Asso Special Bike, along with motorcycle manufacturers such as Harley-Davidson, Indian Motorcycle, BMW, Honda, Aprilia, Ducati (Scrambler), Victory and Moto Guzzi.

Presenting sponsor this year is Bridgestone Tire.
