Storyline

Bone and Bear, two rough and tough bikers ride out from Sturgis, SD. to the marshes of South Carolina to help out their "bro" Ironbutt Garrett, who's land is being eyed by the money-grubbing, domineering Calvin Hogg. With the townspeople aghast at the "scooter-trash" invading Buford, the Sherrif, under the direction of Hogg, try to get the bikers out of town while they try to organize a "Wetland Run" aimed at making enough money to pay off the back taxes that threaten Ironbutt's claim to the land. Bear gets kidnapped by Calvin's over- zealous son Blue, and again it's up to Bone to save his buddy. Written by Peter A. Peterson II <ppeters@npcts.edu>

not great art, but from the heart
3 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

I caught this on cable and--although I have no connection to bikers whatsoever--I ended up not turning the channel and watching the whole thing through. It's definitely what you'd call a genre piece but it's a lot more enjoyable than you'd imagine. If you can take it as just a cool piece of Americana of a certain time and place, you'll have fun.

The story begins in Sturgis, to introduce the characters and their culture, but quickly moves to the South for the majority of the plot. Our hero, Bone, must help an old friend raise money to save his small plot of family land--which happens to be on beautiful Southern wetlands--from the control of developers. He meets dangers and love along the way, as well as gaining an appreciation for the environment and a new sense of home. The characters are pretty much what you'd expect (i.e., not models of complexity a la French New Wave), but the biker characters are actually really appealing and attractively acted.

Also, the town being portrayed is spelled Beaufort (South Carolina), to be irritatingly pedantic and add a slight correction to the summaries above.
