Welcome to ABATE of California

ABATE 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 give 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.

We now have a Motorcycling Anti-Profiling bill courtesy of Assembly member Anna Caballero!  The bill number is AB 2972

What we need now from all of you is for you to contact your Assembly member and ask them to support this bill.  We need as many motorcyclists as possible to contact their Assembly member as soon as possible!

We have attached a complete set of instructions and all of the talking points.  The attachment makes it very simple for you to help us (and help yourself).  Please open the attachment and read it thoroughly.  Then follow the instructions in the attachment.  That is all there is to it.  


IMPORTANT: If you hear back from your Assembly member – good or bad – please let us know at

New Survey! - 2018 National Motorcycle Profiling Survey - Take the Survey!

Recently, the National Motorcycle Profiling Survey 2016-2017 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.

By asking for no more than your zip code and email, which is completely voluntary, there is no personal information to maintain or protect.
