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.

Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Sales

H-D Q3: Domestic US Retail Motorcycle Sales -3.60%; International +2.70%; Forecasting 212,000 to 217,000 Unit Shipments for 2019

Harley-Davidson's third quarter 2019 results have been released, and the headline news is that Harley's retail motorcycle sales may be starting to show some signs of recovery - or at least a slowing of the deterioration.
It was thought that a decent March might have suggested such a rally, but the Q2 numbers didn't continue the trend seen towards the end of Q1. However, for the three months to the end of September 2019, Harley unit sales may, just may, finally be headed in a better direction.

Nieuwe Kawasaki W800 2020

De nieuwe W800 Kawasaki 
maakt in 2020 de indrukwekkende W-familie compleet 

De vorig jaar geïntroduceerde W800 Street en W800 CAFE worden voor 2020 aangevuld met de nieuwe W800, waardoor de W-familie nu uit drie modellen bestaat. De W800 maakt de familie compleet en weerspiegelt het succes van de W800 Street en W800 CAFE. De W800 met zijn 35 kW, luchtgekoelde 773cc motorblok met koningsas is een icoon in de motorwereld en een regelrechte hommage aan de oorspronkelijke W1 uit 1966. 



Ondanks dat de nieuwe W800 op het eerste gezicht veel overeenkomsten heeft met zijn voorganger uit 2016, is de nieuwe W800 compleet geüpdatet en zijn 90% van de onderdelen vernieuwd. De Kawasaki engineers hebben veel aandacht besteed aan het moderniseren van de W800 zonder daarbij de authentieke uitstraling van de W800 uit het oog te verliezen. Zo heeft de nieuwe W800 een volledig nieuw rijwielgedeelte, verbeterde remprestaties (nu ook met schijfrem aan de achterzijde), rondom LED verlichting en een slipper koppeling.
