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.

THE MAIN REASONS WHY PEOPLE CHOOSE TO COMMUTE BY A MOTORCYCLE

'SAVING TIME & MONEY WHILST HAVING AN ENJOYABLE COMMUTE’ - 
THE MAIN REASONS WHY PEOPLE CHOOSE TO COMMUTE BY A MOTORCYCLE

from Motor Cycle Industry Association 



‘Saving Time & Money whilst having an enjoyable commute’ - the main reasons why people choose to commute by a motorcycle or scooter

Riding to Work has been shown as having a significant impact upon a persons’ well-being, which was highlighted in a recent survey conducted to coincide with Ride to Work Week, which started yesterday.
With commuting being a leading cause of stress from factors such as the misery of congested roads and overcrowded public transport, there is a heightened importance for employees to have a stress free commute and for employers to support this.
The aim behind the survey was to identify why people ride to work, and how they would like to see riders supported in transport policy.

Why ride to work?
Over 400 riders shared their opinions via the survey. While ‘enjoyment’ topped reasons to ride to work (93%), 64% said ‘saving time’ was important whilst and 46% said they did it to ‘save money’.
In contrast to popular belief, the weather appears immaterial as nearly 60% of riders claimed to ride through all seasons and weather conditions.

How should riders be supported?
There was clear consensus on what needs to be done by transport planners and local authorities to help riders. They ranged from more secure parking, improved road surfaces and lane widths to allow safe filtering, which is legal in the UK.
Additionally, there was strong support for greater access to bus lanes and access to Cycle Superhighways, which several respondents said are largely empty for most of the day. Access to cycle advance stop lines at junctions also received a regular mention as this unfairly discriminated riders.

Safe road space
As many towns and cities around the UK introduce cycle lanes, there is a worrying trend toward the narrowing of normal traffic lanes, narrow lanes increase risk to riders whom are trying to filter, many respondents suggesting road planners should think again.
How would you commute if not by Motorcycle or Scooters?
Of the 249 respondents who replied to the question ‘how would you get to work if you couldn’t ride?’, 60% said they’d swap to a car, 20% said they’d use public transport and 9% said they’d walk or cycle. 5% said they would not be able to get to their current job at all.

Tony Campbell, CEO of the Motorcycle Industry Association, which conducted the survey for its Ride to Work Week Campaign said:
“With the increasing number of commuters turning to Motorcycles and Scooters to travel to work, and the large rise in Small Parcel & Food delivery by Powered Two Wheelers, Government both national and local must think carefully as to how this can be encouraged and accommodated safely” 

“The Government have set some clear goals around congestion and clean air, to ignore the contribution that Motorcycles & Scooters can offer appears a bit of a paradox”
