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.

Corbin Trunk Box for 2014 Indian Chieftain

Corbin Introduces Trunk Box for 2014 Indian Chieftain

Hollister, CA - Corbin engineers took one look at the new Indian Chieftan and immediately went to work designing a new spacious Trunk Box for it that features 47 liters of storage... enough to hold a full face street helmet with room to spare. 

Fully lockable with a lined interior and color matched exterior, the weather stripped Corbin Trunk Box takes form and function to a new level.

Masterfully designed so the trunk looks like an extension of the factory bodywork, it provides a very clean look and disguises the large storage capacity. Hand painted and finished to coordinate with OEM paint colors, it includes polished aluminum struts and rack for simple installation.

It also includes a passenger backrest pad and armrests covered in genuine leather and uses the same Comfort Cell foam as Corbin’s world famous saddles to provide firm, resilient support. Ergonomic design gives a sculpted fit to the body for maximum contact area and good weight distribution. Tasteful diamond stitch pattern adds a nice custom touch. 

Corbin will gladly coordinate the trunk components to your existing Corbin saddle (if equipped).
A note about trunk loading: Corbin’s Trunk Box is constructed of polyurethane material which is extremely durable and strong. However, it is NOT a good idea to load heavy items in a motorcycle trunk. By nature, trunks ride high and too far rearward to handle weight properly. As such, you should reserve this space for lighter, bulky items like helmets, rain suits and laptops. Although it may withstand greater weights, we recommend a maximum load of 10 pounds.

Installation is simple and suitable for the average weekend mechanic. We include a four piece, machined aluminum rack system that integrates with the accessory mounting "spools" on the Indian fender. Corbin components are polished and clear anodized for protection. Complete instructions included.

Zac Brown Band Heads to 2014 Sturgis Buffalo Chip® Music Festival

Zac Brown Band 
Heads to 2014 Sturgis Buffalo Chip® Music Festival

Sturgis, SD (February 25, 2014) - The Sturgis Buffalo Chip announces that the GRAMMY award winning Zac Brown Band will perform its down-home hits at the Chip’s 33rd annual Motorcycle and Music Festival. The genre-bending group will headline the festival Monday, Aug. 4, 2014, following the Buffalo Chip’s annual Legends Ride celebrity charity event. Zac Brown Band joins the nine-day superstar lineup of concerts, hot off the tail of their recent critically acclaimed studio EP, “The Grohl Sessions Vol. 1.” The festival takes place Aug. 1-9 and will include performances by Mötley Crüe, Alice Cooper, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Florida Georgia Line, John Mayall and many others. The Buffalo Chip will continue to fill out the festival lineup with some of the biggest names in music and will be announcing more bands throughout the year.

“Zac Brown Band is a group you can’t help but love,” says Rod Woodruff, president of the Sturgis Buffalo Chip. “It’s impossible not to smile during their performances. One minute Zac is serenading the crowd with his gentle country drawl, and the next minute the band is knee deep in a Metallica cover. They’re one helluva good band.”

Zac Brown Band sells out shows at venues across the nation, but its performance at the Sturgis Buffalo Chip offers fans something they won’t be able to get at any other venue. Guests will be able to hear the band play with a backing track of revving motorcycles reverberating throughout the natural outdoor amphitheaters. Crowds are sure to feel this rumble crescendo when the band breaks out one of its unexpected covers or any of its chart-topping hits like “Chicken Fried,” “Highway 20 Ride,” “Free,” “Toes,” “As She’s Walking Away,” “Colder Weather,” “Keep Me in Mind,” “Goodbye in Her Eyes,” and “Sweet Annie.”
Masterful skill and an ability to break down genre barriers have brought Zac Brown Band a tremendous level of success since forming in 2002. The renowned group has won eight out of its fifty-five total music award nominations, produced three platinum-selling albums and amassed a staggering eleven No. 1 hits on the Billboard Country Charts. 

Passes for the Buffalo Chip’s 33rd annual Motorcycle and Music Festival are on sale now. All concerts are free with camping. For more information or to get passes to the Largest Music Festival in Motorcycling™, visit or call (605) 347-9000.
