Jesse James’s breakout book, I Am Jesse James, introduced a wider audience to the man behind the motorcycle. With Motorcycle Mania 3, the companion book for the Discovery Channel special, fans will get an even more intimate look at Jesse as he struggles with his skyrocketing success. With his shop besieged by tourists, his schedule packed tight, and his marriage crumbling, Jesse turns to his friend Kid Rock for some much needed relaxation—a road trip to Mexico.
Jesse dreams of the open highways and unspoiled country south of the border, ready and waiting for his two new bikes, an orange and chrome custom for Kid and, for himself, a specialty chopper made entirely of copper—a metal Jesse has never worked with before. They’re going to take these bikes from Texas to the heart of Copper Canyon— a crevice four times the size of the Grand Canyon. After a run-in with the local federales, a mad ATV dash over windswept sand dunes, an invasion of European hippies, and Kid’s ubiquitous calls of "Una cerveza más, por favor," Jesse and Kid emerge from Mexico and return to the spotlight with a bolstered joy for living and a better appreciation for the country they call home.
