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.

Two New Corbin Saddles for 2014 Yamaha FZ-09

Corbin Introduces Two New Saddles for 2014 Yamaha FZ-09 

Hollister, CA- Corbin introduces two new saddles for the 2014 Yamaha FZ-09…
the Gunfighter for solo riding and the Gunfighter & Lady for comfortable two-up riding. 
Both saddles provide the perfect blend of rider comfort and custom styling.

For a solo look, the Gunfighter tail section is shaped to emulate the lines of the bodywork with a fastback tail section. On the inside, the tail is padded and upholstered to provide for short trip passenger capability. Although the shaping of the tail is designed primarily for looks, the Comfort Cell foam still provides a good perch for your copilot on short to medium length trips.
Gunfighter & Lady seat provides total comfort for you and a passenger on the FZ-09. The sculpted

riding positions disperse body weight across a greater area so you enjoy mile after mile of comfort. Neutralized seating platform curbs the tendency to slide towards the tank under braking which will help to reduce fatigue.
For even greater passenger comfort, Gunfighter & Lady accepts Corbin’s optional removable backrest which adjusts to provide a tailored fit to co-pilot's posture. Simple to install with just a single bolt, the Corbin backrest is the most refined system available for your bike. Designed to support your passenger for the long haul and provide a nice feeling of security. Available in a range of styles to suit your taste (#02-S shown). Ovalbac models have rear finishing plate options for a more custom touch. 

Corbin's patented molding and manufacturing process provides a precision fit to the tank and tail section while the whole saddle rides on rubber bumpers to protect the bike's paint. Inside, Corbin’s exclusive Comfort Cell foam is used for firm support that lasts. Corbin saddles give a sporty, custom look yet still provide sport touring class comfort and ergonomic support. 

Leather seating panels are included along with a range of color and material options. (Shown with Carbon-Fiber leather seating along with Asphalt vinyl side panels for subtle contrasting touch) Leather gives you an excellent seating surface that breathes with your body and will conform with the foam shape during break in for a personalized fit to your posterior. Be sure to care for it with a quality conditioner like our Saddle Cream.

Harleydag Woerden onzeker

Burgemeester neemt nog geen besluit 

over het doorgaan Harley-dag Woerden

Burgemeester Victor Molkenboer heeft nog geen besluit genomen over het doorgaan van de jaarlijkse Harley-dag op het Exercitieveld. Deze staat gepland voor 12 juli. Overal in het land worden evenementen met Harley Davidson motoren afgelast vanwege de oplopende spanningen tussen motorclubs.

De Nationale Politie heeft een advies gegeven om motorevenementen te annuleren. Burgemeester Molkenboer vindt dat vooralsnog voorbarig en noemt het een automatisch mechanisme om je in te dekken tegen mogelijk risico.

"De angst bestaat dat groepen (motorclubs red.) een evenement komen bezoeken als de Harley-dag in Woerden ondanks alle goede intenties van de organisatie. Gisteren is er een eerste ontmoeting geweest tijdens het veiligheidsoverleg met de politie. Er zal blijvend onderzoek gedaan worden naar het veiligheidsrisico van de Harley-dag", aldus Molkenboer. 

Onlangs werd er wel een motorevenement in Oudewater afgelast vanwege de angst voor rivaliserende motorbendes die elkaar komen opzoeken. Een woordvoerder van de gemeente benadrukt dat de Harley-dag in Woerden altijd een bijzonder lokaal evenement geweest is zonder inmenging van groepen van buiten.
