For his sixteenth birthday Boy wants a Harley Davidson belt buckle like his dad wore, Worm knows a guys who has one, he lines it up for Max to buy, when she goes to the bar to pay for it the owner HEMI (38) is disrespectful toward her, so she cracks him in the jaw.

Max does mortgage the family home to buy out Seth and renovate Joe’s Tattoo Palace. Worm, Hemi, and some of the other club members help with renovations. Taking longer then anticipated to get the Tattoo Palace open, Max risks losing the farm to the bank.
Feeling indebted to Hemi for his help with the renovations, Max agrees for him to moved out to the farm when he and Worm partner up in a bike building business, that they set up in the big shed.
There is an escalating attraction between Hemi and Max, and over the next few months a relationship develops between them.
As a result, the relationship between Boy and Hemi is fractured, he is conflicted with his loyalty to his fathers memory, and his instincts to protect his mum and her happiness. He rebels, with his friend Josh and gets into trouble with the police.
Seth commissions Worm and Hemi to build him a V8 DRAG BIKE and pays them a lot of money up front. Hemi secretly gives his share to Worm to bail Max out with the bank.
Seth, sets up a mobile Meth lab and puts an unqualified Huss on as his cook. Meanwhile, Seth’s drug use is rife and his conduct becomes more erratic and dangerous.
Bodee and the other club members are concerned when Seth puts a knife to WEED’S (33) throat and even more so when they witness him for no reason, beat the life out of a stripper in the Clubhouse.
That night Cassie, the gutter girl and ageing beauty, tries to seduce Hemi but he rejects her. The next morning when Hemi does come home, Max asks him if there is someone else, he pulls an engagement ring out of his pocket, telling her that this was why he stayed in town. Max is surprised when Hemi asks her to marry him.
Boy, fines the papers hidden in the lining of his dads guitar case, proving that Seth has been deceiving Max about the real ownership of Joe’s Tattoo Palace. Joe had bought Seth out, before he died.
She storms the clubhouse and challenges Seth in front of Bodee and the other members.
This betrayal, Seth’s erratic behaviour and his rampant drug use causes an inter-club split, the majority of the Abigor members go with Bodee and form the “HIGHWAY ROGUES”
Seth, is crazy angry and he orders Huss and the remaining men to do drive byes, beatings, ram raids and bike thefts, and finally he declares war.
Convincing Huss that she is fraternising with Weed, now a HIGHWAY ROUGE, Seth sets Holly up to be bashed by Cassie and the other club gutter girls, she is left in a coma in the ICU.
When Max collects Holly’s belongings she challenges Huss who denies having anything to do with the assault. She stands her ground against his middle eastern mates; when one tells Huss, not to let a women speak to him like that.
A photo of a women holding a baby falls out of Holly’s bag onto the car floor, Max picks it up, and later she finds the same photo in Joe’s old trunk and makes the connection.
After the hospital Holly, moves into the farm with Max’s family and she and the grandparents are told the truth about Holly being Joe’s daughter.
When Huss is arrested he does a deal with the cops and tells them about Seth’s Meth lab. This gets back to Seth.
Believing he was betrayed Seth, has his brother Bodee ambushed and bashed by Huss and other club nominees, he hands a pistol to Huss who kills Bodee, when he hands the gun back to Seth, he too is shot in the temple.
Max and family are distraught over Bodee’s death, she gives Hemi an ultimatum, them or the club, he moves back to the club house.
Boy, is shattered over Bodee’s murder. He has since developed an admiration for Hemi and is angry with his mother for sending him away. He again rebels, running away from home to join Hemi at the Abigor Riders Clubhouse.
Meanwhile Worm tells Max the truth about Hemi giving her the money to pay the bank and why neither of them can leave the club. When Hemi brings a very messy Boy home, Max tells him that she knows everything.
He asks her if she will still marry him. She says; “Only when you are no longer a club member”.
Hemi takes Max and the kids up to a place on the coast where he wants to build their new home.
It’s a family day out, Hemi and Worm deliver Seth’s drag bike, and tell him they are leaving the Abigor Riders. When Weed approaches to parlay, Seth, fires a fatal shot killing a Highway Rouge, and It turns into a bloody massacre.
When Max sees Seth shoot Josh and then train his gun on her son Boy, She takes Angry’s gun and shoots Seth, killing him.
Max, Hemi and Worm, bury the dead and collect their bikes from the massacre site. Worm and Hemi are the last two original full patch members left.
When sorting through the club’s documents they find Seth’s last will and testament, it turns out that he is quite wealthy and has left everything to the Abigor Riders. Max wants Joe’s legacy,the Abigor Riders club closed down and the assets sold and distributed among the dead members families.
