MADNESS PHOTOGRAPHY

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.

Two iconic brands renew and extend partnership following four successful years

CUSTOM COUSINS: New contest will see H.O.G. and J.O.G. members crown the best customised Wrangler vehicles
Harley-Davidson® and the Jeep® brand have renewed and strengthened their European partnership for the fifth consecutive year.

Under the arrangement, the Jeep brand will remain a key partner and official sponsor of major Harley-Davidson events and rallies throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Brands don’t come much more iconic than either Harley-Davidson or Jeep. Each boasts a long and fabled history played out on the world stage. And today both produce vehicles that encapsulate the very essence of freedom and the spirit of adventure.

Building on the success of the last four years, Jeep will have a larger presence at three major Harley-Davidson European events – Euro Festival in Saint-Tropez, France (7-10 June), the 115th Anniversary of Harley-Davidson in Prague, Czech Republic (5-8 July) and European Bike Week™ in Faaker See, Austria (4-9 September).


Jeep will also attend other Harley-Davidson events in the year including Africa Bike Week™ in South Africa (26-29 April), the Tuscany Rally in Italy (25-27 May) and the Thunder in The Glens event in Aviemore, Scotland (24-27 August). In addition, Jeep will showcase vehicles at local events across the EMEA region.


Event visitors will be given the opportunity to get up close and personal – and test drive – the entire Jeep line-up . Special guest at each major event will be one of the new products that will enhance the Jeep range this year, including the all-new Wrangler. All will be available for exciting test drives on and off-road. The full 2018 range of Harley-Davidson motorcycles, including the all-new Softail® models, will be on display and available for test ride at all events.
There will also be a strong Jeep dealer presence to handle enquiries, a terrace ‘chill out’ area, an exciting zip line experience and a Mopar® expo area where the public will be able to admire the latest Jeep models. This will include the iconic Wrangler equipped with Mopar® Original Accessories created to enhance its look, functionality and off-road capabilities. Here visitors will also receive information on Mopar® products and services, as well as on the endless possibilities of customizing their Jeep vehicles.


Visitors can ‘shop-till-they-drop’ and will be able to purchase Jeep and Harley-Davidson Merchandise from the official outlet stores on site, while H.O.G members can also take advantage of a limited offer with preferential rates to purchase new Jeep vehicles. All events will be complemented by strong digital, social media and print exposure for the Jeep brand across all of Harley-Davidson’s channels.


The reinforced relationship builds on the core values the two brands share: freedom, adventure, and a passion for the open road, with all of the experiences it brings. Both produce vehicles that encapsulate the very essence of freedom and the spirit of adventure and allow customers to live out their individuality in a strong and distinctive way. Owners of the two brands also share something very special – a sense of belonging that often translates into highly custom
