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.

Legend Air Suspension, the Ace-Ace at Motorcycle Storehouse

Legend Air Suspension, the Ace-Ace


Ride height has been a hot debated issue around custom bikes since decennia. Low is cool, hitting the street after a pothole is not, neither is limping away from your bike after a 100 mile ride. Other important factors are the actual load on the bike. Just the rider or riding 2-up with luggage for a 3 month camping trip. The only true solution is a suspension system that is wide-range adjustable. 

The more extreme the adjust ability is, and the easier to adjust, the nicer it is. That's why Legend Air is the Ace-Ace if we'd be playing Texas Hold 'Em. Legend Air manufactures fully adjustable air suspension that can lower the bike from stock to 3" lower, great for the super-low bike look when parked. 


The push of a button will tell the compressor to do its thing, no matter if it’s parked or traveling at cruising speeds. Of coarse, correct ride sag can always be obtained in all situations. Tech details include Gates Kevlar air spring technology, deflective disc dampening and, best of all, no bottoming out under any load. 



Color coded plug & play for a quick and hassle free installation. Applications include 89-13 Softail, 86-13 FLT/Touring, 06-13 Dyna, 86-13 Sportster and 02-13 V-Rod models. Just take a look at page 260-261 of the new Vol. 11 MCS catalog and give your Motorcycle Storehouse dealer a call.

H-D RIDERS WEAR PINK TO RAISE $1 MILLION FOR WOMEN AFFECTED BY BREAST CANCER

HARLEY-DAVIDSON® RIDERS WEAR PINK TO RAISE $1 MILLION 
FOR WOMEN AFFECTED BY BREAST CANCER

MILWAUKEE, WI – The Harley-Davidson family of riders and fans has a promise for women affected by breast cancer: You’re not alone, because we ride with you.

These riders and fans added extra horsepower to that promise by raising more than $1 million for organizations that support and empower women affected by breast cancer through the purchase of Harley-Davidson® Genuine MotorClothes® Pink Label Collection apparel and merchandise. 

“The brave and courageous women who have shared with us stories of battling breast cancer are the inspiration for the Pink Label Collection,” said Karen Davidson, Creative Director of General Merchandise and granddaughter of a Harley-Davidson Motor Company founder. “The custom Pink Label gear is a powerful way for riders and enthusiasts to express their support for the one in eight women in the United States who are diagnosed with this disease.” 

The financial support begins with the purchase of any H-D Pink Label item. Three percent of the suggested retail price of Pink Label merchandise is donated to organizations like the National Breast Cancer Foundation and Young Survivor Coalition that support women affected by breast cancer. 

Thanks to the generosity of Harley-Davidson motorcycle riders, fans and dealers, the Pink Label Collection generated more than $1 million for such organizations since its inception in 2010. And that’s just the beginning. 

For 2014, the new and expanded H-D Pink Label Collection includes 88 iconic items, each with the power to make a difference. Visit h-d.com/pinklabel to learn more. 



                                                         These are some examples: 

The new Limited Edition Pink Label Mandarin Collar Leather Jacket (P/N 97010-14VW, starting at $495) is made from lightweight cowhide leather and features the added elegance of contrasting piping and cowhide panels; domed stud accents; plus printed and embroidered highlights. Its zippered shoulder and back vents complement the power-stretch waist and pre-curved sleeves to deliver maximum comfort. Pockets at the elbows and shoulders accept accessory body armor for added protection. Available in XS – 3W sizes.
