I wonder if they'll touch upon "JJ's" real name...

Something that we can finally agree upon. VWW

Donald Trump is the biggest con artist next to Dean Kamen (I believe that's the name of the inventor of the Segway.)



I'd be willing to bet $1000 that his net worth is a negative integer.

I loved the fawning, c**ksucking story on him that was done in Cycle World years back, before he hit big. Jesse mentioned not wanting to build bikes for rich a$$holes. So what was he charging? Something like $60,000 at the time, IIRC.



Yeah, keepin' it real.

I find it odd that in my family I am the only one who rides motorcycles and also the only one who has never seen one of these chopper shows on the tele.



Whenever my motorcycle habit comes up in conversation with people who don't ride motorcycles many times one of the first things they ask me (sometimes before or after they tell me about the friend of a friend who lost a leg/arm/head/etc. on a motorcycle) is, "Have you ever seen that chopper show on cable?" No, I haven't.



Whenever I talk to people who ride motorcycles about riding motorcycles we never talk about these chopper show.



Hmmm...starting to see an association here...

I couldn't tell ya! I know it's not Jesse James though - the name thing is something else he's playing out.

I saw the show last night:



Did he really say that HD riders were "dorks"?



He seemed to equate "coolness" with one's ability to buy one of the 20 bikes he cranks out a year. At least he well understands the superficiality of his RUB audience.



One of his bikes at 140 mph??? That's one bike test I want no part of.



Much like a Moonie, he's selling a way of life for the confused. Listen to the prophet JJ. Sell all your worldly possessions. Buy the Cool. Be the Cool....

Jesse James 60 Minutes Interview
 
Regarding the clueless interviewer, I wonder how many times they had to reel JJ in.



"What's the difference between your bikes and Harley-Davidsons?" Sheesh.



Having been interviewed a couple of times myself by reporters (who were making an honest effort to get the story right), I know how easily they can completely screw up your comments, be they in print or on tape.
