ABATE is not a club, gang or Harley group, and we do not have back patches. Anyone that is interested in preserving their right to ride is welcome. And while we are a non-profit organization we are not a charity. We currently have over 12,000 members and 60 chapters throughout the state. ABATE consists of and Executive Board charged with conducting the day to day affairs of the organization; a Board of Directors which consists of 1 member from each chapter charged with setting policy, enforcing bylaws and guiding the organization. The members in each chapter provide input to the State through their board reps and drive the organization.
