Previously: “It’s a retreat for hermits,” Wyatt grinned, “Complete with a private dock and two boats.”
“C’mon—who?” He asked, “I’ve wondered every time I go by, but forget to ask.”
“The sheriff and the Halvorsons,” Wyatt replied, “And they throw some epic parties.”
“The sheriff?” I don’t see him ever letting his hair down.”
“What hair?” Wyatt laughed, “Their parties are limited to their closest friends, and are quite laid-back.”
“That’s ‘cause they’re old—like you,” Jimmy teased.
“I can clearly see you’re campaigning for the graveyard shift,” Wyatt laughed, “You might just be successful.”
A few minutes later they pulled into Charlie’s place, “Oh GREAT—bikers!”
There were two bikers having an animated conversation with Charlie—this can’t be good!
Season 13—Adventure 8—Every Day Danger Bay—Episode 2—Scene 1… At Charlie’s… The first thing the deputies saw as they drove in was a lot of arm waving from the shorter of the two bikers, “Do you reckon those are remaining biker-wannabes who evaded capture during our dragnet?”
“I don’t know, Jimmy,” Wyatt replied, “But that shorter one certainly is agitated.”
“I reckon we’re going to find out.”
“Calm-down? You want me to CALM-DOWN? I’ve waited weeks to get my bike here in Danger Bay—I’m tired of walking!”
“Spokes,” Charlie said, “We had to wait until we had the spokes installed on Debra’s bike, to save you an unnecessary trip.”
Joey immediately stopped with out of character the arm waving, with a sheepish, “Oh.”

“The bikes are done,” Charlie grinned, “But before we go inside, let me tell you some things you should know—despite their authentic appearance, both motorcycles are each powered by the same electric batteries—charged as needed by biodiesel motors. Like all vehicles here, they are hybrids.”
“But the sound they make…” Debra interrupted.
“…Will be exactly the same as their gasoline fueled counterparts,” Charlie replied, “They’ll sound and feel just like you experienced in what you call the real world—just like your tugboats.”
“You know about the ‘Real World’?” Wyatt asked.
“I’ve heard rumors—it is not a place I’d willingly visit.”
“Based upon what I’ve learned from my girlfriend about the Real World,” Wyatt added, “It’s not a place I’d want to live—and my boss, Sheriff Boomer, along with Chief Deputy Shouse, both say this is a better place to live.”
“It will get a whole lot better when we get our bikes.” Debra laughed.
“Well—then,” Charlie said, “Let’s go deliver your bikes.”
Moments later—they were standing in front of their new motorcycles.
“Well?” Charlie asked.
“Well?” Charlie asked.
