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.

From sunup to sundown, SeaLegs at the Beach in Bolsa Chica was at capacity and filled with lovers of all types of creativity and counterculture. At any given moment, engines could be heard on the purpose-built hooligan flat track while waves were crashing as some of the West Coast’s best surfers competed for bragging rights in the WCBR Surf Competition. Live music from talented bands such as Black Uhuru, Unwritten Law, and Lit performed until the doors closed on what many thought was one of the most entertaining and authentic moto events to hit the coast of California in years.


At the core of the festival were the race pits, with over 120 hooligans, veterans and professional racers from across the nation orchestrated into a compact carnival. With over 40 Super Hooligan racers signed up, the points series finale of the Roland Sands & Indian Motorcycle Super Hooligan National Championship (SHNC) was primed to be one of the most exciting race events held in recent years. The ultimate prize, an Indian FTR750 was up for grabs to the SHNC Series Champion. Super Hooligan was not the only race on deck. The BMW Boxer Cup Challenge had a host of talented riders, and the Law Tigers Mini Moto Race brought out its fair share of characters. The Moto Beach Classic provided entertainment for everyone.

MICHELIN ROAD 5 voor Sport Touring motorrijders

MICHELIN ROAD 5:  
Meer vertrouwen voor motorrijders: vandaag en morgen 

Michelin komt met een belangrijke nieuwigheid voor Sport Touring motorrijders. Tot nu toe is de MICHELIN PILOT ROAD 4 (met meer dan 1,5 miljoen verkochte banden in 4 jaar tijd) de onbetwiste standaard op de Europese markt voor Sport Touring banden. Maar zijn opvolger, de MICHELIN ROAD 5, verlegt opnieuw de grenzen voor sportieve radiaalbanden. Uit intern onderzoek, waarin hij werd vergeleken met zijn grootste concurrenten, blijkt dat de MICHELIN ROAD 5 de beste grip heeft op nat wegdek*. Bovendien blijft hij gedurende zijn hele leven goed presteren in natte omstandigheden. Zelfs na 5.000 kilometer, heeft de MICHELIN ROAD 5 net zo een korte remweg als een nieuwe MICHELIN Pilot ROAD 4!** Dat is een belangrijke verbetering. Tegelijkertijd heeft de MICHELIN ROAD 5 ook optimale grip op droog wegdek, meer stabiliteit dan zijn grootste concurrenten en een uitstekende handling***. Allemaal eigenschappen die essentieel zijn voor Sport Touring motorrijders. 




DE NIEUWE MICHELIN ROAD 5 HEEFT 
MEER GRIP OP NAT WEGDEK 
DAN ZIJN VIJF BELANGRIJKSTE CONCURRENTEN 

Door een combinatie van drie technologieën, zet de MICHELIN ROAD 5 de beste prestaties neer als het gaat om grip op nat wegdek. Dat blijkt uit intern onderzoek waarin de band werd vergeleken met zijn vijf grootste concurrenten*. 
De MICHELIN ROAD 5 kan dit prestatieniveau bereiken dankzij: 

- de nieuwste generaties rubber compounds; - de dual-compound technologie (MICHELIN 2CT Technology en MICHELIN 2CT+ Technology); - de lamellen in het profiel.
