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.

INTERMOT 2018: dynamic, innovative and exciting

INTERMOT 2018: dynamic, innovative and exciting

Test tracks and event areas integrated even more centrally into the event

Motorcycle fans will once again make the pilgrimage to Cologne from 3 to 7 October 2018. With around 1,000 exhibitors, INTERMOT Cologne is one of the most important trade fairs worldwide for motorcycles, scooters and e-bikes. This year, the event presents itself even more visitor-friendly and extensive, because the structural planning of INTERMOT is being optimised: "INTERMOT of course impresses with the outstanding presentations of the manufacturers and the world premieres shown, but also with an event programme that is unique in terms of its variety. This year we have primarily redesigned the various test tracks, and in some cases positioned them on new open areas directly linked with the exhibition halls. The close interlocking of presentations and action heightens the excitement and creates a greater degree of visit quality for motorcycle fans", according to Ingo Riedeberger, Director of INTERMOT.  


INTERMOT Cologne will fill halls 6-10 of the Cologne fair grounds with a total gross floor area of 100,000 square metres. The successful concept of distributing the market leaders through all halls will be continued in order to ensure a steady visitor flow to all areas and segments. Among others, BMW Motorrad, Harley Davidson, Honda, Ducati, Kawasaki, KTM, Kymco, the Piaggio Group with the Aprilia, Moto Guzzi and Vespa brands, as well as Triumph and Yamaha will be in Cologne from the start. In addition to these, brands like Indian, which has once again expanded considerably, Royal Enfield and Horex will also attend with their own presentations. The Benelli brand can also be seen again in Cologne. In addition to this, new brands from the e-motorcycle and e-roller segments, for example, Energica, Zero, emco or Kumpan, will also provide new impulses in Cologne. In the clothing section, the return of the well-known Italian manufacturer, which is also bringing the renowned helmet brand AGV with it to Cologne, is especially worth mentioning.


The event areas with the stunt shows and test tracks will be directly linked on the open spaces around the INTERMOT halls. For example, the big test track on the open area in front of hall 10 can be reached directly from the trade fair boulevard. The route follows the ramp to the parking level of hall 10. INTERMOT e-motion will also start in a new atmosphere and with a new concept: electric motorcycles, electric scooters and bicycles with all accessories ar
