“Jesse James Is A Dead Man” on Spike TV

What happens when you combine the treacherous Arctic Ice Road, negative 60-degree temperature, and the superior capability of the BMW R 1200 GS Adventure motorcycle? The next adventure of Jesse James, of course.

On Sunday, June 14 from 10:00 -11:00 p.m. , ET/PT, Spike TV will telecast the third episode of the new hit series "Jesse James Is A Dead Man," where James will traverse the infamous Arctic Ice Road from Inuvik to Aklavik, Alaska. This hazardous highway of snow and ice is home to some of the world’s most extreme conditions, including bitter below zero temperatures, piercing wind chills, and the perilous ice road itself that can open at any moment, swallowing a traveler instantly. With virtually no traction on the unprepared ice and not a single gas station for miles for refuge or repairs, at least the BMW R 1200 GS motorcycle could offer some comfort and peace of mind, and not just from the heated handgrips.

"From motorcycle enthusiasts to those who just can’t get enough of Jesse James, this episode will provide viewers a chance to see the extreme capabilities of the BMW R 1200 GS motorcycle, and how it excels in what could be the world’s most inhospitable conditions," said Roy Oliemuller, communications manager for BMW Motorrad USA.

For this perilous journey, a BMW R 1200 GS Adventure motorcycle was outfitted to fight the frozen north with a multitude of modifications, including studded tires and custom flame paint in typical Jesse James fashion. The BMW R 1200 GS Adventure motorcycle is coveted around the world as the only motorcycle that can tackle any terrain, from the African Desert to the Tibetan mountains, and come back for more. The GS series of dual sport motorcycles are at the forefront of adventure riding, which is quickly gaining in popularity in the United States due to its promise of fun and freedom both on and off road.

Ten weekly one-hour episodes of "Jesse James Is A Dead Man" are being produced for Spike TV by executive producers Jesse James and Hildie Katibah through his production company, Payupsucker Productions, in conjunction with executive producers John Brenkus and Mickey Stern of BASE Productions ("Sport Science," "Crime 360"). Kevin Lee also serves as executive producer. Sharon Levy and Tim Duffy are executives in charge of production for Spike TV.
