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.

Erik Buell Racing onthult de EBR 1190RX

Erik Buell Racing (EBR) onthulde vandaag zijn nieuwste sportmotor, de EBR 1190RX


ORLANDO, Florida – Na maanden van speculatie door motordealers, media en liefhebbers van sportmotoren heeft Erik Buell Racing (EBR) vandaag zijn nieuwste sportmotor, de EBR 1190RX, onthuld op de American International Motorcycle Exposition (AIMExpo) in Orlando.



Hoewel de nieuwe, straatlegale high-performance motorfiets een rechtstreekse afstammeling is van EBR’s 1190RS Super Bike limited edition racemotor, beschikt de 1190RX over tal van nieuwe features die hem in het competitieve segment van de sportmotoren zeer concurrerend maken. Opvallend is dat de nieuwe motorfiets slechts 190 kg weegt, maar tegelijkertijd 185pk en een koppel van 138 Nm put uit zijn ET-V2 1.190cc V-Twin. Maar weinig, of wellichts zelfs geen enkele, productiemotorfietsen hebben dit maximumkoppel ooit gerealiseerd. De brede koppelkromme van de 1190RX verzekert berijders ervan dat overvloedig vermogen in elke versnelling voorhanden is en de 21 standen van het tractiecontrolesysteem zorgen ervoor dat dat vermogen onder alle omstandigheden door de bestuurder beteugeld kan worden. Naast die brede koppelkromme levert de nieuwe krachtbron een gecombineerd verbruik (snelweg/stad) van 1 liter op 17 kilometer. Bovendien bedraagt de uitstoot van schadelijke stoffen slechts 25% van wat volgens de U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) normen is toegestaan en ligt de uitstoot van koolmonoxide op slechts 6% van de norm van de Amerikaanse federale regelgeving.
