If you leave, you’re just another citizen

The film opens in an amusement park. Bikers riding teacups…ya know, the usual. Until it of course spirals into a full out amusement park brawl.  Angel, the VP is tired of gang life. He leaves his colors at the park, for Shotgun to take on, and hits the road.

Aww man. You’re really corny

At a small town gas station, the local cop is hassling some hippies. Angel takes their side and the cop backs off. One of the girls, Merilee, offers him food at their commune nearby, in trade for a ride on his bike. He obliges.

Angel, you are hung up in old ways of seeing.

Angel likes the commune…and Merilee. He chops wood, works the crops, skinny dips, and even learns to pot. It seems like paradise. Until all of a sudden, the commune is overrun with rednecks on dune buggies! They give the group 1 week to get out of town. Angel tries to talk to the locals, but it doesn’t go so well, so he head back to the one place he didn’t want to go…the old haunt biker bar, looking for backup.

Just remember man. Speed kills.

He invites the boys up to the country. He tells them of the cowboys vs hippies dilemma. After a bit of friendly ribbing, the boys agree to help out and everyone hits the road to the commune.

Let’s get it on man.

The bikers settle in and all seems groovy…until they get into the special stash of hallucinogens that is. They get greedy of course, and want the recipe for the ‘special cookies’ but the hippies refuse.

This place is a bummer man

I don’t dig it man. Let’s split.

Shotgun’s got Angels ex old lady as a mamma now, but that doesn’t stop him from making the moves on Angels new old lady Merilee. He doesn’t get far and the biker on biker feuding starts to build tensions. They want out but they’re not leaving without those ‘special cookies’.

Eat dirt pig

But when the Dune buggy riding, lasso looping cow-pokes send a message to the commune by roughing up one of the girls, a plan is devised to give the bike gang the ‘whamo’ (special cookies) if and only if they stick around long enough to fight the cowboys. Cut to dune buggies VS scrambler dirtbikes in the desert…and the fight is on!

I’d ask you what a good pacifist would do, but I don’t care

In the end, the hippies wins the war against the rednecks. The bikers are paid in ‘whamo’ and Angel is free to stay on at the commune to learn the art of pacifism with his old lady.
