Jesse James Is A Dead Man TV Show Starts Tomorrow

jessejames3Just a reminder that Jesse James’s new TV Show on Spike will air its first episode tomorrow Sunday at 10PM ET/9C. No, Jesse Jesse doesn’t have a death wish. What you will see are not stunts but challenges. Quite different. Don’t worry, Jesse already shot all 10 episodes a few months ago, and except a few bruises and a couple of broken ribs he is very fine. Something I am going to reveal: his ultimate fantasy is to go around the world in 30 days on a wheeled vehicle. What kind? He is thinking about it… It would require another show series. If you can’t wait until Sunday evening for the 1st episode of  “Jesse Is A Dead Man” the Spike Website offers a few teaser videos. Jesse James Is A Dead Man.

    Should be a good series with a huge audience that sells the Jesse James name brand, he’s earned it so why not capitalize on it. but such can be said of others albiet coming from different marketing beginnings and angles but all marketing for the same end result, the once almighty dollar.

    The bloggers praised and scouffed Robbie on his upcoming jump following in Evel’s footsteps, riding the skirt tail for all its worth if you will all the while earning a name for himself over the years. Riding a supercross type cycle, utilizing top engineers in the industry, ah, how many broken bones would Evel have been spared and an easier physical life in his later years if doing same with todays technology, noting money isn’t everything. Risk to Reward who knows, RIP Evel, you entertained generations.

    We drag the OCC guys around the blog world based on posting after posting based on diversion from the reality of the bike business, opinions, bias, jealousy, buy in, entertainment value or the lack of, etc. The more exposure, good and bad, the more the return on investment.

    OCC, their sponsors, completely different industry companies, tagealongs wanting exposure for their brand by cuttling up next to a marketable suceess, the promotors, ratings fed network bookings, all loving it. They all thank you and your continuing contributions.

    Some will praise Jesse some not, the more attention/promotion the higher the Sales, Ratings and ROI for all involved. Advertisers jumped at the chance to piggy back/sponsor for the association and gained exposure.

    Gaming designers will capitalize as well introducing new generations to the Jesse brand irregardlous of being motorcycle knowledgable or involved in bikes at all. At the end of the day it is all show business – entertainment for profit.

    All are engineered, choreographed, risk managed stunts in one form or another, further reiterating a far different world then when Robbie’s dad did it on not much more than guts, a slide rule and a modified street bike.

    All feeding the hungry public for entertainment breakaways from their normal day lifecycle, not all bad but not all good. As modern day children, teenagers, young adults as well as some children trapped in adult bodies, all being mentally molded, not getting outdoors experiencing their own life futures/growth, now living/developing in fantasy worlds, TV and computer screen adventurers all, sometimes disfunctionally tweeking completely missing out on reality and/or real life experiences and the gratification and growth that comes with it, no wonder our society has lost family based values.

    Our society has become moles and drones for the fantasy life, a lot has been learned from pro wrestling promotion and fantasy – monetary capitalization from/of the naive and willing public over the years. Many riding same.

    Not against capitalism nor entertainment just must be balanced with real life experiences not a reality show. Good Luck Jesse just don’t forget Jesse as Jesse.

    Enjoy the show all but don’t lose out on real life grats and all that goes with it. Who knows you may be the next Jesse.

    The show will export well because 95% visual. After the jump more millions for Jesse.

    Think about it. Jesse James do stunts, the Teutuls are acting and Cyril Huze is publishing. Conclusion? Money is not in building bikes. But in the medias.

    OCC and Mr James, no difference in the year 2009.

    Personaly I think he is just a pretty “Normal” bike type person with a few extra clues about making money than most of us,He is very clever with the media,
    I always read his column in Heavy Duty magazine and he pulls no punches or dribbles comercial bull shit.
    This ones just out and the heading is THE CRAZE IS OVER (the chopper craze)
    Very poignant….Hope you can get it state side, it is an Aussie mag and one of the best (and thats from a Kiwi)

    Jealousy is the worst of all human emotions.

    Well I’m off for a ride there is some snow north of here so I;m gonna go look for it…

    Just one thing though, does any one know why HD’s heated handle bar grips keep failing ? I have my 3rd set coming under warrant and it;s a Fcuking cold winter this year.

    Early left hand grips failed prematurely due to failure of the control

    Grip kits effected were 56512-02A, 56107-03A, 56619-03, 56047-03A,
    56694-04, 56750-04, 56828-03, 56196-03A, and 56174-03A.

    Replacement/upgrade grip has a raised
    circle or “nub” in the center
    of the control knob.

    Hope your not replacing with same failing early unit and not upgrade.

    Don’t know for sue but worth a check out. Hope it helps.

    FYI all efforts of JJ during the last years were devoted to find a way, to meet the right people to do TV or a movie. Because of money. (Nothing wrong with it)

    Jesse Who?………….He’s a wanna be!

    “… go around the world in 30 days on a wheeled vehicle. What kind?…”

    That would be interesting…. Sure, but only if it’s on a MC.

    Some have speculated there’s a movie career (change) in the offing…..
    Isn’t that about mass-market (as opposed to biker-market) appeal……???

    But then, Chuck Norris did it.
    On the other hand, Chuck doesn’t have “Pay Up Sucker” inked into his hand???
    (may be with some Charm School???)

    Thanks Grayhawk,Yes the new ones are only coming available down under in 2 weeks and yes the replacement was like with like.
    There have been dozens go fut.But they obviosly kept releasing dud stock…It is a 5 hour round trip for me to go to the dealer which is the Sourthern most one in the World.It can get fairly bloody chilly.
    At least I’ll have warm hands on the way home….lol

    Your probably at the mercy of an export distribution point and they just send what is on the shelf not knowing otherwise. Shop Counter people can sometimes take the perceived quick route and just write up a service order unless they or the tech have personal expierence on a common issue of multiple failures and tech spends wasted time looking for cause.

    The more astute ones no matter the OEM run the traps for a service item issue or bulletin to see if a common issue is occuring as such this issue could be.

    Customer can help out ones self by asking service writer to check for service bulletin or flyer if he doesn’t on his own, saves all time and money, especially those that travel far for service or the tech trying to fix issues when he is on flag hour pay and spends a bunch of wasted time looking for a short or ? so all take a hit. Work smart not hard.

    Kiwi you give new meaning to what we call Southern boy.

    Keep warm

    He is a “wanna be”? Shit last time I checked you are not a wanna be if you already are……But hell I may be wrong brother.


  15. 15 nicker Jun 1st, 2009 at 9:21 pm

    Right Conrad,

    JJ already “be”….. absolutely….. no contest.
    He’s one hell of a design & fab guy.

    With gas prices going up, massive inflation hanging over our heads, and a need for increasing market-share by diversification…… the time may be ripe for cool street quads…… ???
    Certainly better than Obama mandated, Government Motors built, people’s-cars.

    Was sort-a hoping JJ would do something new and innovative. More his thing.
    And a far more interesting “challenge” (IMHO, anyway).
