Welcome to ABATE of California

ABATE (American Brotherhood Aimed Towards Education) of California is a Motorcycle Rights Organization (MRO) dedicated to preserving individual freedom and promoting safety. We fully support rider training, safety and educational programs. Our members also raise funds for the less fortunate, through charity runs and benefits. We encourage our members to become active in their local communities. 


ABATE works to protect the rights of all motorcyclists through direct involvement in the political process. Part of our job is to be a legislative watchdog for you. ABATE has a full time lobbyist in Sacramento keeping track of legislative bills that affect or are of interest to motorcyclists. You, as an individual, can help in the ongoing struggle against anti-motorcycle legislation both here in California and across the United States by becoming an ABATE member.


ABATE is non-partisan and welcomes all riders, on-road and off-road. We urge those with a strong interest in motorcycling to unite and become part of one of California's strongest motorcycle rights organizations. ABATE feels that all of us, lifestyle rider to off-road fan, are brothers and sisters with a common interest -- riding free.

ATTENTION: California Unification Rally May 21st

The United Motor Vehicle Unification Rally on Sunday, May 21st at the California State Capital in Sacramento is designed to be a showcase for both motorcycle rider and auto driver interests. This rally will seek to unite, for the first time, manufacturers, dealerships, repair shops and supporting organizations from both industries to work on common issues, combining resources and becoming a larger political force leveraging our strengths, passion and will to remain free from government overreach. Although it is scheduled for a Sunday, when state legislators are not in their offices, the day presents the opportunity for maximum attendee participation and more easily allows those that choose to do so, to come back the next day, on May 22, to participate in our “Legislator Day”, where constituents will meet with their district law makers to lobby against current or future laws impacting our ability to choose the type and makeup of vehicle we currently enjoy, and in some cases, require.

Rally organizers are working hard to assemble a strong group of keynote speakers, including legislators, as well as representatives from vehicle part manufacturers, motor vehicle associations, oil companies, unions, veteran organizations, and other large influential organizations. National Motorcycle Rights and Motor Vehicle special interest organizations and other coalitions are also expected to participate and lend their support of free choice and protection of motor vehicle supporting industries. where jobs will be directly affected. Rally topics include…

• Criminal profiling of motorists, Autonomous Vehicles, Use Of Sound Activated Cameras, Exhaust System Compliance Certification Stations, Denial Of Vehicle Registration Based on Compliance of New Standards, Fair Repair Legislation Effecting Our Freedoms To Choose Who Can Service Our Vehicles, Motorcycle Safety Awareness, Mileage Based Taxes, Expanded Use Of Fee Based Commuter Lanes And More….
