I tell you what to think and when to think!
Don't tell me anything man, I'm not a member of your private army.
Well then Get out!
I don't need you, and I don't need your rules or your uniform man.

Although this film doesn't do much, it accomplishes everything that it set out to do. It successfully exploits just about everything in order to fulfill its duties. Sex, drugs, and violence are king here. The plot is like the women in this film: loose. There a lot going on but nothing much gets done to further a story. However, a romance is at its center. There are some scenes of bikers running amok set against hippy music that work well. The acting was very good from the entire cast, not just Nicholson (who, as always, was superb). I'm not going to give anything away, but the ending could have been better. It was a little cheesy. This is a pretty good biker exploitation flick although I would recommend Russ Meyer's Motorpsycho if you're in the mood for motorcycle chaos.
