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.

Hawg Halters offers NEW Brake Options

New brake options from Hawg Halters

IN response to the increased use of large front wheels on Touring models, Hawg Halters Inc. (HHI) has introduced its X-23 bolt-on triple tree kit.

The new kit is designed to make it easy to use a 23in front wheel on FL models without needing to modify the frame. The X23 bolt-on triple tree kit fits all '97 and up Touring bikes, and positions the front wheel forward approximately 2in. It does not require fork extensions, uses stock length fork covers, maintains a fully functional fork lock, includes fork travel limiters, and does not need a raked head light bezel kit. The X23 is available in machine or black finishes.

To keep everything in proportion when using an over-sized front wheel, HHI has launched its BFBK - an 18in, six-piston caliper and floating rotor kit. This kit features a new six-piston differential bore caliper for 18in brake rotors that the company claims is the first direct bolt-on, purpose built caliper for the big wheel Bagger market.
The BFC-18 caliper, used in the kit, features a completely redesigned and upgraded six-piston configuration with bigger bores and larger brake pads to deliver increased overall braking performance. It is available in polished, chrome or black anodized finishes.
The matching BFR-18in floating rotors can be ordered to match Renegade wheels or in an HHI design with matching or contrast finish to the user's wheels. The BFR-18 rotors are manufactured in a traditional HHI Pin Type design.
The BFR-18 floating rotors feature a billet aluminum center section in chrome or black, with a 420 stainless steel, cross drilled friction ring.
