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.

National Motorcycle Museum Update - Road Race Bikes for Dirt Track Heroes exhibit

Exhibits Update – 
Road Race Bikes for Dirt Track Heroes exhibit 

Since the National Motorcycle Museum reopened in its new larger facility in Anamosa, we’ve continued to add new exhibits each year, opening them just before Vintage Rally each June. Exhibits have featured Arlen Ness creations in Awesomeness, Military and Police bikes in Motorcycles at Work, drag bikes in Quarter MileStones, scooters from around the world in Scooters! and most recently Grand National Championship bikes in Allstate Motorcycles Dirt Track Heroes presented by J&P Cycles. We are getting great feedback on Dirt Track Heroes and have decided to make some updates to include more road race bikes, part of GNC racing through 1985, and keep the exhibit in place through May 2015. So, if you have not had the chance to take in these fine bikes, leathers and read all the biographies of 26 champs since 1954, you have another year.
