The film was produced by Nesmith and was the first release under his Pacific Arts Pictures banner. It stars David Rasche, Catherine Bach, and Tino Insana. The movie is centered around the Menaces, a group of motorcycle riders who are determined to protect the freedom of the open road. The Menaces are led by Johnny Rock (Rasche), a former stockbroker who left his job to join the group.

The Menaces' mission is threatened when the leader of the local Chamber of Commerce (played by Catherine Bach) decides to shut down the annual motorcycle rally that the Menaces are planning. She sees the Menaces as a liability to the community and is determined to put an end to their activities.

Catherine Bach, who is best known for her role as Daisy Duke in the television series The Dukes of Hazzard, and Tino Insana, who is known for his work on the television series The Weird Al Show.
