Plot Overview

Bobby's younger brother Bruce enters the CHP Academy and tries to balance his duties as a cadet with his ambition to be a star motorcycle racer, which leads to a slump in his ratings at the Academy and run-ins with his demanding Sergeant. When he quits the Academy, Ponch and Bobby appear before the Sergeant and a Captain to speak on Bruce's behalf. They have their hands full on the job as well--first with a pair of motorcycle bandits who are ripping off couriers working for a former CHP officer's delivery service, and also with a trio of hitch-hiking Valley girls who are robbing older men who give them rides. The girls wind up over their heads when they try to rob a guy who knows their phony gun scheme all too well and has plenty of experience with using a real gun.
