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.

Davida KOURA full-face – 
modern standards, retro styling, multiple approvals 

New for 2018, the Davida ‘KOURA’ is a retro inspired, high performance helmet, clearly identifiable as having the characteristic and popular Davida DNA, with an exceptionally low profile and a “strikingly bold styling that will be impossible to ignore on the streets and the track,” says Managing Director David Fiddaman.

British helmet specialist Davida has followed up on last year’s well received and extensively updated V3 ‘Speedster’ half shell helmet with another step in the direction of worldwide approvals for its designs and a first entry into the full-face market.


Certified to ECER22-05 and shortly to be followed by DOT FMVS 281 and ACU Gold, the new Davida KOURA will be available in early 2018 in both road and race versions.
Davida's first full-face helmet is a result of the enhancement of their technical team with the very best expertise of Italian MotoGP and F1 racing helmet designers who delivered the smallest-profile road-legal Davida Speedster V3 in 2016.

“The intensification of this collaboration, utilizing access to the latest helmet design technology and expertise, has created another stunning, high quality, modern Davida safety product.  
“Integrating the clean contours and compact proportions of the 70s and 80s full-face designs, together with key race-bred features, we have achieved an uncompromising fusion of innovative design, exceptional ergonomics and superior comfort that is as authentic in its aesthetics as it is in its advanced technology. 


“Achieving road safety standards is the start of our design process, it's not the finishing line. We always work to extend the design boundaries above and beyond conventions, and consumer and industry reaction at EICMA, in the heartland of style, was exceptional.  
“Introducing a full-face helmet marks a new era for us. The Davida KOURA delivers everything you'd demand from a high-performance motorcycle helmet together with the level
