ABATE of New York provides the neutral ground which allows us to stand beside and support each other in unity, to safeguard our rights and to be individuals with different views. A concept that we are united with a common interest and now a common ground on which to stand. There are approximately 2400 members in ABATE at this time and many thousands nation wide. We are not a "Motorcycle Club", rather a Not For Profit Corporation. Whether you wear a patch, any patch, or ride independently, your "Right-To-Ride" is our agenda, our goal, our only concern. In order to remain fair and objective, we will not endorse any one club, group, or organization. Likewise, we will not discriminate against the same. WE are working for ALL BIKERS!
Anyone interested in motorcycling may attend our meetings. We don't all ride motorcycles, but the majority of us do share this interest. To find a chapter near you give us a call with a location of where you live and we will point you in the right direction.
The main purpose of the ABATE organization is to work toward continued freedom of the road by insuring that motorcyclists' point of view is presented to our legislators and to promote motorcycle safety, rider education, and awareness. We are trying to alleviate the very real possibility of "Big Brother Government". We encourage all our members to be informed, registered voters. We write letters to our elected officials and stay aware of what is going on with motorcycle legislation, education and other transportation issues. "New Rider" education classes with certified safety instructors are currently being offered by some New York State chapters.
ABATE of New York currently has 25 chapters throughout the state. We welcome interested persons to any of our activities or to join our organization. Some of the examples of what we've been doing: Toy Runs, Poker Runs, Family Picnics, lobbying in Washington, letter writing campaigns, meeting with our legislative representatives in Albany.
