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.

Kawasaki News Show

Recordaantal bezoekers voor tweede editie van de Kawasaki News Show

Afgelopen weekend organiseerde Kawasaki de tweede editie van haar eigen News Show in het Nationaal Militair Museum. Ook dit jaar was de belangstelling voor de nieuwste Kawasaki modellen ongekend groot, want duizenden motorrijders wisten hun weg naar Soest te vinden.


De unieke setting van het Nationaal Militair Museum en de gratis toegang voor mensen met een motorrijbewijs bleken ook dit jaar weer een gouden combinatie. Dankzij de ruime opzet van het museum konden Kawasaki fans uitgebreid kennis maken met alle 2019 modellen en kleuren, zoals de compleet nieuwe Versys 1000 Adventure Tourer, de sensationele nieuwe Supercharged modellen en de ongekend populaire Z-range. Daarnaast konden liefhebbers zich vergapen aan een schitterend Kawasaki mini-museum of op de foto met een van de vele Kawasaki coureurs, waaronder World Superbike coureur Leon Haslam.

Henk Salomons, General Manager Kawasaki Benelux:
“In Nederland hebben we in tegenstelling tot andere landen geen Motorshow met de focus op nieuwe modellen in het najaar. We zoeken continue naar nieuwe wegen om met de consument in contact te treden. We doen het niet alleen geweldig goed op het gebied van verkopen en in de motorsport, maar het is ook geweldig om te zien dat ons merk zo ongelooflijk veel belangstelling krijgt. Dit evenement is zeker voor herhaling vatbaar! Op de EICMA Show in Milaan was Kawasaki de absolute smaakmaker met het meeste 2019 nieuws. We zijn er van overtuigd dat komend seizoen wederom een doorslaand succes voor Team Green zal worden!”
