A.D. Farrow Co. Harley-Davidson is playing host to Marines of Columbus, Ohio-based Lima Company, giving them rider training and a little R&R.

A dozen Marines from the 3rd Battalion, 35th Marines group took the class after returning this month from deployment in Afghanistan, and a dozen more will next month.

The unit that left last May went on more than 900 patrols, found 18 roadside bombs, flew eight insurgent interdiction missions and completed four village medical outreach projects. While they were gone, the government enacted new regulations that anyone wishing to ride a motorcycle on a military base must complete a training course certified by the Motorcycle Safety Foundation.

A.D. Farrow's Sunbury location offered a special Rider’s Edge New Rider Motorcycle Training Course to accommodate the troops.

“Our mission is to grow and serve the motorcycling community and we are honored to serve these very special motorcyclists in this way,” says owner Bob Althoff.

The multi-time Dealernews Top 100 Dealer has been honored in recent years for its community involvement efforts, including support for local military and participation in cancer charity events.
