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.

Rivera Primo Headlights

Rivera Primo Headlights
RIVERA Primo's HedLED range of headlights combines a high end halogen headlight with built-in LEDs for use as either turn signals (if legal) or running lights.
The HedLED range includes the chromed aluminum Mighty Magnum, a 9in long bullet style light with a built-in visor over the 53⁄4in diameter headlight. It features a H4 halogen bulb (60/55w) with a three-bar clear lens and Rivera Primo's proprietary LED ring for running lights or turn signals.
The Magnum line continues with the Mini Magnum, which is 7in long and has an external bezel, H4 halogen bulb (60/55w), Tri Bar, clear lens and LED ring for running lights or turn signals.
For those who do not want a chromed Magnum headlight the company offers both the Mighty Magnum and Mini Magnum in a matt black finish.
Rivera Primo's Flamethrower Max uses the same chrome body and halogen light as the Mighty Magnum, but also incorporates an amber halo into the halogen. The high-intensity 'halo' can be kept on at all times as a running light.
The RFB HID from Rivera Primo is a HID (high intensity discharge) headlight, with all of the necessary electronics built into the housing. It has all the advantages of the Mighty and Mini Magnums, plus the brightness of an HID, with the LEDs placed in the billet headlight bezel.
The Alien Black is a variation of the RFB HID headlight, which uses a halogen bulb rather than an HID. Its bezel is powder coated in matt black, while the body is powder coated gloss black. As with all the company's HedLED lighting systems, it has the signature split ring or super bright amber LEDs that can be used as turn signals or running lights.
