Storyline

Cocky, overconfident motocross champion Jim Dancer and his more mature and levelheaded bike racing buddy Steve Mitchell decide to trek from Mexico to Canada via an unmarked off-road route. During their eventful pilgrimage the carefree fun-loving (and seeking) protagonists encounter a mixed bag of folks who include a perky middle-aged lady who wrecks cars for a living, two sexy swinging babes, a friendly farmer, and a hotshot aspiring motocross rider teen who challenges Dancer to a race. This latter episode ends in tragedy, with the kid taking a fatal spill off his bike. So the kid's gung-ho militant gun fanatic father decides to hunt Dancer and Mitchell down in his sinister souped-up truck. Written by Woodyanders

American Biker's On A Quest
12 June 2005 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

In the purest form possible a look at the American motorcycle lifestyle in a way not seen since EASY RIDER. This is a film that will be interesting to all but should have a cult following in the USA biker community.

Considering the resurgence of the motorcycle in world culture it is only a matter of time before this film is rediscovered. It has many elements that are timeless and faces issues that are even more important today than when the film was made.

In the broadest sense, are you free? What would life be like if you truly were free? Who would try to take that away from you and what would you be willing to do to stand up and fight for what was rightfully yours. Look at A GREAT RIDE and be prepared to look into the mirror.
