The last scene of this movie tied directly into the first scene in which Kyle performed an heroic good deed for a fellow soldier. The message was clear and powerful and was needed in a big way back in 1977 when this movie was released.

I saw a clip once of Hunter S. Thompson, who literally wrote the book on outlaw biker gangs, where he stated that the left wing in America wanted very bad to make bikers part of their movement and were frustrated by their refusal to sign up and be "down for the struggle".
Despite their appearance and their hedonism, bikers were pretty much right wing, gung-ho about Vietnam, and racist to boot. The Northville Cemetery Massacre presents it's protagonists the way they wished it had been, a bunch of hippies on hogs, freaky and scary with a soft underbelly, scaring then helping old folks, throwing darts at a picture of that dastardly old communist hater Richard Nixon. All portrayed as victims, especially the main character, who's a victim of the system and American foreign policy.
I think the reviewer who wrote that this wasn't a gloss job like the AIP bike movies should watch Gimme Shelter and get back to me.
All considered, it was pretty entertaining and a movie that really lived up to it's title
