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.

Now Validated for Fat Boy and Fat Boy Lo Models 

MILWAUKEE - New Harley-Davidson®-exclusive Michelin® Scorcher tires are now available as the only Harley-Davidson-validated alternative to the original-equipment tires for the Fat Boy® and Fat Boy® Lo motorcycles.

The Michelin Scorcher 11(P/N 43100016, 17-inch Front $230.95; P/N 43200022, 17-inch Rear, $269.95) fit 2007-later Fat Boy and 2110-later Fat Boy Lo models.

These Harley-Davidson Michelin Scorcher tires are exclusively designed, tested and approved to deliver optimal performance on each Harley-Davidson motorcycle model. The tires can be identified by the “Harley-Davidson” script on the sidewall and are available through authorized Harley-Davidson retailers. 

Harley-Davidson advises its customers that it is essential to use only Harley-Davidson service replacement tires that are the approved fitment for each individual year and model motorcycle. Using non-approved tires or mixing approved tires from different manufacturers on the same motorcycle can adversely affect stability, which could result in death or serious injury.
