    Because on TV people prefer to see bad ass people. It’s entertaining. He is just playing a character to get audience and money. It’s the way it works.

    to address all who have replied possitive and negative. Jesse james is one hell of a bike builder, welder, fabricator, inventor, and business man. What he has done for the industry is put lightly when described as phenomenal. He acts the way he does because he can. Maybe it is about money but no one will know unless they ask. Assumptions are the cause of all great screw ups. Just look at what Mr. James has done for the automobile industry. Just in his single episode of Monster Garage when they built the old school chevy chopped and sectioned with Bill Hines and all the great’s of the day. That alone put grease in thousands of childrens veins and minds. So i say to Jesse James, Keep up the good work, don’t change a bit, and ride on.
