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.

Legend Air Suspension, the Ace-Ace at Motorcycle Storehouse

Legend Air Suspension, the Ace-Ace

Ride height has been a hot debated issue around custom bikes since decennia. Low is cool, hitting the street after a pothole is not, neither is limping away from your bike after a 100 mile ride. Other important factors are the actual load on the bike. Just the rider or riding 2-up with luggage for a 3 month camping trip. The only true solution is a suspension system that is wide-range adjustable. 

The more extreme the adjust ability is, and the easier to adjust, the nicer it is. That's why Legend Air is the Ace-Ace if we'd be playing Texas Hold 'Em. Legend Air manufactures fully adjustable air suspension that can lower the bike from stock to 3" lower, great for the super-low bike look when parked. 

The push of a button will tell the compressor to do its thing, no matter if it’s parked or traveling at cruising speeds. Of coarse, correct ride sag can always be obtained in all situations. Tech details include Gates Kevlar air spring technology, deflective disc dampening and, best of all, no bottoming out under any load. 

Color coded plug & play for a quick and hassle free installation. Applications include 89-13 Softail, 86-13 FLT/Touring, 06-13 Dyna, 86-13 Sportster and 02-13 V-Rod models. Just take a look at page 260-261 of the new Vol. 11 MCS catalog and give your Motorcycle Storehouse dealer a call.
