Sindy Cahill On A Motorcycle
31 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Jon is creating a new form of CHP and plans to use it to get Sindy on a motor.Sindy shows up and rides with them. Grossie takes a spill but we learn that he's not really hurt and Ponch paid him off to do it. Grossie admits he would have done it himself, but plans to take Ponch's money anyway. She takes over for Grossman and Getraer expresses his concern.

Down in the valley, Jon comes across a man chasing chickens on his bike. Jon cites him and has him and his girlfriend follow him back to the woman's house to apologize for ripping up her garden. Soon, Sindy's chasing two bikers across some rough terrain. One of the bikers kicks her down into a riverbed. Ponch finds her injured and limping but she doesn't give up.

Back at Central, Ponch wheels Sindy down the hallway so that she doesn't have to walk and give away her injury. Later, Jon stops by her apartment and confronts her about her ankle. They get in a shouting match and Ponch breaks them up. Sindy agrees to visit the doctor.

Out on patrol the next day, Ponch chases the councilman. Ponch knocks him off his bike just before it goes off a cliff. Meanwhile, Sindy finds the outlaws' hideout. She calls for Jon and chases after one of the outlaws when he takes off. As Jon arrives, the two other outlaws leave the hideout and cause it to explode. Jon apprehends them. Down in the riverbed, the outlaw sets a bush on fire. Ponch comes along and puts the fire out while Sindy goes after the outlaw again. She catches him and finds a bag of drugs.

Ride The Whirlwind features CHP Officer Sindy Cahill on a motorcycle together with Jon and Ponch on the road.And together,they capture outlaw bikers that are drug dealers.Although the story is somewhat ordinary,seeing Sindy on a motorcycle makes it special indeed.
