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.

DUCATI SCRAMBLER JOYVOLUTION

SCRAMBLER JOYVOLUTION: 
LOTS MORE FUN IN THE LAND OF JOY
Ducati presents the new Scrambler Icon, to go on sale from November
Even more fun, more comfortable and safer thanks to new electronics
Just four years on from the brand launch, more than 55,000 Ducati Scramblers 
have been sold worldwide

Borgo Panigale (Bologna, Italy), 10 September 2018 - The latest Ducati Scrambler makeover provides a bike that is now even more contemporary, comfortable and safe, taking ‘Land of Joy’ fun to new heights. Affordable and essential, the Ducati Scrambler is the perfect blend of tradition and innovativeness. Even in this latest 'Joyvolution' incarnation, it retains the pure essence of motorcycling: two wheels, a wide handlebar, a simple engine and endless fun. What's more, the new Bosch Cornering ABS maximises active safety during braking, adding an extra layer of untroubled freedom.


The Ducati Scrambler brand, launched in 2014 to 'speak a new motorcycling language', puts a modern-day slant on the ethos of the 1960s Scrambler. It's fair to say that it's no mere motorcycle, it's a veritable lifestyle. Free-spirited, go-getting and non-conformist, open to other cultures and styles, Ducati Scrambler has created a world - the 'Land of Joy' – where aficionados can share their experiences and ideals. A world in which the protagonists are not bikes or performance but people and their passions: music, cinema, art, photography, street food. A new approach that takes the motorcycling experience to the next level.


Ever since its launch, the Ducati Scrambler has set a whole new standard by offering a fresh take on motorcycling. In 2015 it became the world's 10th best-selling bike over 500 cc, an absolute first for the Bologna-based bike manufacturer. Four years on from the brand launch, more than 55,000 Scrambler bikes have been sold worldwide.
 

The breadth of the brand is also evident in the four mono brand Scrambler Camp stores in Padua, Borgo Panigale, Barcelona and New York, and the two Scrambler Food factory restaurants opened in Bologna.
