My rating: 3/10

Will I watch it again? No.

Holy cow.  Here's what you get for 68 minutes...

That's not far from the truth.  There's tons of nudity and it's cut with scenes from the motorcycle trials in preparation for the big competition.  The VHS quality print I watched was pretty dark at times so the nudity (most all of it shot at night) is dark and difficult to see.  What's more, it's boring.  I know, right?  Boring boobs?  Get out of here.  But they are after about two minutes.  The ending is abrupt and idiotic.  SPOILERS...the girlfriend kills one of the captors with a shotgun and she gets away with her boyfriend.  As they're driving down the road the surviving bikers pass them, giving them dirty looks.  When the girl asks if they should be worried the dude calms her by saying essentially the bikers learned their lesson and they won't be bothering them any longer.  W...T...F?  Don't waste your time. At least this was released by Something Weird Video and the rest of the two hours on the tape was filled with vintage 70s porn trailers, most of which were FAR more entertaining than this mess.  And I like Lee Frost's movies, too.  From what I can gather, this was a Danish film that he re-dubbed.  I can't find anything more about this picture.  I'm not going to waste any more time with it, either.
