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 at HOCO Parts: the new Rukka suit “Armaxion”

Defence and comfort at its best: the new Rukka suit “Armaxion”
The high-tech suit “Armaxion” brings together all the characteristics of high quality textile motorcycle apparel that is ahead of its time.

The Armaxion suit is made of abrasion and tear resistant Gore-Tex three-layer laminate with an upper layer of 500D Cordura fabric and a durably waterproof, extremely breathable Gore-Tex Pro membrane. In some zones, highly comfortable elastic Cordura ensures even better fit, while Armacor is used to reinforce the upper layer in exposed areas.

The jacket and the trousers have removable thermal linings for warmth on cooler days, while in hot weather, two-way ventilation zippers at the sides, on the back, and on the thighs can be opened to guide the air stream into the suit if desired. Annoying slippage on the seat is prevented by a non-slip Keprotec-Antiglide panel on the trousers’ seat area, while the AirCushion system on the inside acts as a climate buffer against the motorcycle’s seat, dissipating condensation. The soft neoprene collar, the detachable neck warmer made from elastic three-layer laminate, as well as the water- and windproof cuffs make for optimum comfort of the jacket. Sleeve and waist adjusters ensure a perfect fit of the suit. Several waterproof pockets offer space for the wallet, mobile phone and other necessities. The highly comfortable Rukka D3O Air protectors on the joints and in the back ensure high levels of safety by multiplying their protection in the very moment an impact occurs.

The Armaxion jacket is available in the colour combinations Black/Red, Black/HiVis Yellow, and Black with orange pipings in sizes 46 through 62 as well as in Black with silver pipings in sizes 46 through 66. The Armaxion trousers come in Black with regular leg length in sizes 46 through 62, with shorter legs in sizes 48 through 66, and with longer legs in sizes 48 through 58. The prize would be from € 899,- (jacket) and € 599,- (trousers) including VAT.
