American Bikers Aiming Towards Education

What is A.B.A.T.E. of Michigan all about?

ABATE is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the overall rights and promoting the safe operating practices of all Michigan motorcyclists.

ABATE of Michigan is a freedom of choice organization. Believing that the rider is best able to decide the type of motorcycle to ride, and the type and extent of safety gear worn. Our primary objective is to monitor motorcycle related legislation and encourage all members to become politically involved through public forums, demonstrations, corresponding and meeting with our elected representatives.

ABATE of Michigan's members have the opportunity to speak their side of
the issues and educate others on the needs, and rights of Michigan motorcyclists. ABATE
works to get legislation and funding for rider education programs throughout the state.
These programs train thousands of new, and inexperienced motorcyclists each year, and
courses are also offered for the intermediate, and experienced rider as well.

In addition to political action and safety, ABATE members have staged and participated in
events that have, and continues to raise desperately needed funding, and also by
collecting much needed items such as food, clothing and toys for local communities, and
