Motorcycles, bars, and the West.
22 August 2013 | by rtimkoSee all my reviews

Not a bad flick! Pretty fun/funny and the production quality was pretty good. It also seemed to get much better as the film went on. A very quotable movie that seemed to take inspiration from Easy Rider, Big Lebowski, and maybe even a little bit of Two Lane Blacktop. I'm not much of a reviewer and this is my first IMDb review. I'd have liked a little more character development/background for some of the characters, but overall Northway and Sanders were great characters. And, of course, there is always a woman. She arrives a little late in the flick but nonetheless still a good character with a bit more development/background than the other two.
