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.

New Survey! - 2023 National Motorcycle Profiling Survey - Take the Survey!


Recently, the National Motorcycle Profiling Survey 2022 concluded and the results definitively demonstrate that motorcycle profiling is an epidemic in America. Many motorcyclists in America have been targeted based on appearance, not behavior. 


Please take the time to take the 2023 National Motorcycle Profiling Survey. Note: NO PERSONAL DATA IS REQUIRED! YOUR PRIVACY AND ANONYMITY ARE IMPORTANT AND RESPECTED. By asking for no more than your zip code and email, which is completely voluntary, there is no personal information to maintain or protect.

September is Legislative Month

With Session Ending Sept. 14th, the groundwork for next year starts NOW!  One of the most effective ways to "lobby" legislators is a face-to-face visit.  Our influence in the state capital and districts is you meeting, creating relationships and sharing our positions with your legislators and their staff members.  This can be done in the legislator's Sacramento office or at the legislators' local offices near your home.  ABATE of CA are asking you to make a September appointment and meet with the legislator or staff in their local office.  We can help you with the agenda and talking points.  Contact your Local President or the ABATE of CA Office.

By each of us getting involved and doing just a little, we can accomplish great things...Together.
