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.

MOTORCYCLE LIVE TICKETS

MOTORCYCLE LIVE TICKETS ON SALE NOW: 
FIVE REASONS TO BUY IN ADVANCE
The countdown to the annual pilgrimage is on. From 17-25 November 2018, Motorcycle Live will fill four halls of The NEC to bursting, with brand-new metal from over 35 leading manufacturers; all the latest kit and accessories; 10 interactive riding features; 
non-stop live entertainment; biking celebrities and an all-new, never-seen-before 
high octane extravaganza – Moto-Cirque.


Tickets are on sale now and are once again all-inclusive, so when visitors are through the door, every single live feature and event is completely FREE of charge. November might feel like a long way away, but here are five great reasons why booking in advance is the right thing to do…

1) Save money
Adults save £5.50 by buying in advance rather than on-the-door, paying just £19.50* instead of £25.00. Spend the saving in the bar while debating which new model is top of your wish list, or put it towards that must-have bit of kit from one of the many retailers at the show. If you’re bringing the kids, under 10s get in FREE and 11-16 year olds are just £1**.

2) Save even more money
For 2018, there is an exclusive offer in place for Motorcycle Live visitors who book The NEC car parking in advance, resulting in a further £6 saving. Of course, those arriving by motorcycle can avoid the NEC’s parking fee altogether and park for FREE - and there is no need to book in advance.

3) You might get a Golden Ticket
Advance ticket buyers purchasing online are automatically entered into a prize draw to win one of hundreds of on-the-spot prizes, from caps and t-shirts to signed merchandise and event tickets, all donated by Motorcycle Live exhibitors. You could end up with a VIP trip to BSB or a book signed by your racing hero, so it’s definitely worth checking!

4) Avoid queues on the day
Around 10,000 bike fans could be flocking into Motorcycle Live on any given day – that’s a lot of people who potentially need to buy their tickets from the box office. Book in advance, get an e-ticket and walk straight into the halls without passing go – it’s a no-brainer!

5) Bag a bike lock
Pay a little extra for your advance ticket and get an Oxford HD MAX disc lock worth £25.00 thrown in for good measure. This £25.00 advance ticket offer is only open to people buying their ticket before the show opens on the 17th November, and locks are collected from the Oxford stand on the day.

Motorcycle Live 2018 takes place at The NEC, Birmingham from 17-25 November. Advance tickets for Motorcycle Live are on sale on 1 August priced at just £19.50 per adult, £12 for Seniors, £1 for 11-16 year olds* and FREE for children aged ten and under**. There is also a £25 advance ticket, which includes entry to the show and an Oxford HD MAX disc lock worth £25.00.

To book, call 0844 581 2345 or visit www.motorcyclelive.co.uk

BENNETTS INSURANCE FOR CLASSIC MOTORCYCLES

BENNETTS LAUNCHES INSURANCE FOR CLASSIC MOTORCYCLES
Motorcycle insurance specialist Bennetts has launched insurance for classic bikes, offering owners of modern classic and vintage machinery individually-tailored, 5 Star Defaqto-rated coverage when it comes to protecting their pride and joy.


The experts at Bennetts have designed the insurance for classic motorcycles package to make it as easy as possible for owners to customise and modify their bikes. The policy includes 16 common modifications covered as standard (www.bennetts.co.uk/customer/help-advice/modifications/standard) and – for the many classic bike owners whose machinery is an ongoing project – if any of those 16 modifications are made after taking out the policy, they do not need to be declared to Bennetts. For non-standard modifications to the bike, there is no administration fee to amend the policy to include these changes.


Bennetts insurance for classic motorcycles also includes optional agreed value, making sure each unique bike is insured to the correct value. Should the worst happen and the bike is written off, the salvage retention options allow owners to buy back their bike and recover any parts. For those who want to show off their prized possession to fellow enthusiasts, the policy includes show and events cover.


Bennetts understands that motorcycle enthusiasts can be just that – their passion lies in all things two-wheeled, whether it’s a brand-new model or a vintage bike. For this reason, Bennetts offers insurance for both modern and classic motorcycles on one multi-bike policy (up to four bikes), so owners who have more than one type of machine in their garage do not need to insure each one on separate policies.

“At Bennetts, we understand that owning a classic bike is about much more than just riding,” explains Bennetts Head of Commercial, Brady Hoines. “It’s about tinkering, polishing and ever-improving your pride and joy and showing it off to like-minded people who appreciate the work you have put in. That’s why when it comes to insura
