Re: Two Motorcycles for a Buck Each

On Saturday, July 29th Sheriff Rodenberg and Chief Deputy Combs accepted two new Harley Davidson motorcycles for the Clermont County Sheriff’s Office Motorcycle Unit.  Since the Unit’s inception about two years ago Harley Davidson-Eastgate has leased the Sheriff’s Office two motorcycles for $1.00 per year each.  The two motorcycles received Saturday are the second set to be provided to the Sheriff’s Office.

The Clermont County Sheriff’s Office is the first law enforcement agency in Clermont County to have a Motorcycle Unit supported by Harley Davidson.   “Without the support and generosity of the Eastgate Harley Davidson staff, a Motorcycle Unit for our office would be cost prohibitive,” Sheriff Rodenberg stated.  Chief Deputy Combs remarked, “Motorcycles provide greater mobility and maneuverability in certain situations, and have proven to enhance positive public relations.”

In the attached photo Bob Bacon, Sales Manager of Harley Davidson-Eastgate, who is the retired Police Chief of Terrace Park OH, displays the $2.00 that Sheriff Rodenberg and Chief Deputy Combs (standing to the right) gave him for the two motorcycles.
