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.

HOCO Parts nieuws: Avon breidt Storm 3D X-M range uit

Avon breidt Storm 3D X-M range uit

HOCO Parts uit Barneveld meldt dat Avon met een aantal nieuwe maatvoeringen van de Avon Storm 3D X-M komt. Een band die bedoeld is voor sportief georiënteerde motorrijders, die hun motor ook voor lange afstanden en woon-werkverkeer gebruiken. Deze groep heeft een band nodig die bij een sportieve rijstijl over optimale grip en stabiliteit beschikt, maar die daarnaast ook een lange levensduur biedt. 

Avon komt aan deze wensen tegemoet door de technologie van de zeer populaire Avon Storm band te combineren met een aantal nieuwe ontwikkelingen. Zo is de Avon Storm 3D X-M voorzien van een loopvlak met kruisende, driedimensionale punten in de smalste profielgroeven. Deze constructie verbetert de stabiliteit, de grip en de opwarmtijd, terwijl ze de flexibiliteit van het loopvlak indamt. Daarnaast is de Storm 3D X-M voorzien van hoogwaardige rubbersamenstellingen met veel silica, dat de natte grip sterk verbetert. Deze rubbersamenstellingen worden zowel in mono-compound als in multi-compoundloopvlakken toegepast.

De Avon Storm 3D X-M (voor eXtra Mileage) is bedoeld voor motoren als de Kawasaki ZZR1400, de Suzuki Hayabusa, de Honda Blackbird, de BMW R1200 en de Yamaha FJR1300. De band was al leverbaar in de maten 120/70-ZR17 (voorband) en 180/55-ZR17 en 190/50-ZR17 (achterband). Daar komen een flink aantal maatvoeringen bij. 

De Avon Storm 3D is via uw dealer vanaf januari 2014 verkrijgbaar in alle gangbare maten. 

De prijs is nog niet bekend gemaakt. Kijk voor meer informatie op of op, ‘Like’ Hoco Parts en blijf op de hoogte van het laatste nieuws!

Voor: Achter:
110/70 ZR17 150/70 ZR17
