Officer McLeish is chasing a 1981 Chrysler K-car and it outruns his KZ1000 motorcycle. The K-car was an economy car that with the optional higher output engine took over 12 seconds to get to 60 MPH, while the KZ1000 took about 5 seconds and in about 13 seconds would be doing over 100 MPH. An economy car cannot outrun a high-performance motorcycle. See more »

McLeish Is Being Chased
6 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In Finders Keepers,CHP Officer Steve McLeish,Jon's temporary partner, is mysteriously chased and harassed by criminals whose stolen car he recovered.

A couple of kids steal a criminal's car to get to work, and take an incriminating envelope when they abandon it.When Steve finds the car.Then he finds himself under surveillance when the owner assumes that he has the envelope. Jon helps out a country singer and ultimately falls for her.Too bad that he keeps missing her act. Also,a bondsman from Texas uses unorthodox methods to catch a man who he claims beats and robs older women.

Another great episode from CHiPs despite not having Erik Estrada in it.Bruce Jenner plays McLeish excellently.
