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.

J&P Cycles, GEICO and Sturgis Buffalo Chip to Giveaway Street Hooligan Indian Scout Sixty

J&P Cycles, GEICO and Sturgis Buffalo Chip® to Giveaway Street Hooligan Indian Scout Sixty
Registration is now open for cool 2018 Moto Stampede Sweepstakes bike 

STURGIS, SD – An Indian Scout Sixty customized into the ultimate street-legal tracker by the dream team at J&P Cycles will be going home with a crazy-lucky winner in the 2018 Sturgis Buffalo Chip Moto Stampede® Bike Giveaway. The Buffalo Chip teamed up with J&P Cycles and GEICO Motorcycle to create a one-of-a-kind beast that will tear up the track on Sunday and be ready to gather a few gawks along the street on Monday. Any licensed driver 18 years or older may enter to win this beastly beauty by going online to https://www.jpcycles.com/sweepstakes/buffalo-chip-moto-stampede-bike-giveaway or registering in person at the Buffalo Chip before Aug. 7 at 5 p.m. during the Sturgis Rally event. The bike will be presented to the winner on the Chip’s main stage on Wednesday, Aug. 8.



The unique build was meant to inspire motorcyclists of all levels of technical skills to investigate customization possibilities they can perform themselves. To that end J&P Cycles expert builder Pauly White created a dream machine any motorcycle enthusiast could build in their own garage, using their own tools. While completely changing the body, handlebars, controls, wheels, tires, seat, exhaust and lighting, the bike never left the garage, except for painting. A link to the list of the parts used on the bike can be found on the sweepstakes registration page.
The bike will be on tour with GEICO at the International Motorcycle Shows until it will be
displayed at the Buffalo Chip in August. Sweepstakes registration is open at each IMS GEICO display.
