Who We Are
ABATE of New York is a corporation, not a "motorcycle club". We are a group
of individuals from different backgrounds coming together to ensure that the
motorcycling lifestyle will still be an enjoyable lifestyle for our children
and grandchildren. We do this by making sure that motorcyclists' point of
view is presented to our legislators.
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. We spread the word about motorcycle safety,
awareness, and education. And to do that we have events and motorcycle runs.
Yes, we sit at meetings each month
but we also ride our motorcycles ... a lot! A member is not required to
attend meetings but we do like to see all your smiling faces!
Anyone interested in motorcycling
may attend our meetings and events. We don't all ride motorcycles, but the
majority of us do share this interest.
