PLOT:

Two bikers smuggle dope in from Mexico and sell it to this rich turd for their big score. They decide to ride the back roads of America to Florida and retire. It doesn't work out all that good.

 

MY RATING.........."MAYBE THE BEST BIKER FLICK"


COMMENT:

Hollywood freaked out because this little independent film, made by hippies, grossed so much money. Also the first film to use real music in the sound track. Won awards and will be around long after there arn't anymore bikers. One of my favorites.
