Lot's of vintage motorcycles...Way cool old Harley's!
31 July 2000 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

David C. and Brenda V. are pretty good as they ride across the country and play lovers head games. The somewhat reluctant "Pit Crew" are really good in their supporting roles with the escaped prisoner my favorite character of all. If you like motorcycles and enjoyed "Easy Rider", you should see this movie. I'd also like to take this opportunity to recommend "Me and Will" for a night when it's just you and your favorite biker chick. Ride easy Bro's.
