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.

W&W New Stuff - Bates Tires Baja 100

Bates Tires Baja 100

Gravel, rocks and roadkill – here’s an awesome tire knowing no fear. Whistle into town, come back home across the fields Steve McQueen style. Do some hooligan racing among friends on the neighborhood dirt track. Or what about that camping trip to that place where the road ends you’ve been postponing all those years? The Bates Baja tires can handle it.


Here’s a family of scrambler tires right on the tracks of the legendary Goodyear Grasshopper, capable of doing it all: ample grip on the road with a tread pattern that will get you out of the deepest ruts off the road.


The Bates tires Baja are the product of Bates’ long experience on diverse gravel, dirt and mud pistas, highways and Autobahns on several continents. For continuous quality control we use them on our daily riders.


We’re having this classic square section tire produced to the highest technical standards. The design matches perfectly most vintage, bobber and chopper style bikes. The available wheel sizes can be freely combined. Your next vintage scrambler project should be awesome.
It’ll give that extra twist to that off-the-wall vintage rigid project of yours, or use it to give a whole new attitude to your custom bobber or 70th style swingarm.

The tires are certified by German TÜV for speeds up to 190 kph.
