ABATE of California is more than just a statewide circle of motorcycle lovers. Membership provides you access to a wide variety of legal resources, news updates and regional events. (These programs are subject to change.)
Members receive a sew-on patch for their first year membership and year pins thereafter.
A monthly newsletter, 'The Bailing Wire', is mailed to each member as well as being freely distributed to hundreds of motorcycle shops throughout California. Each Local also receives copies of The Bailing Wire to distribute. Members may also advertise in the Bailing Wire’s classified section at no cost.
A sponsored political action committee exists (ABATEPAC) to assist members wishing to become more politically aware and involved. ABATE employs a full-time registered lobbyist in Sacramento whose responsibilities include monitoring bills and regulations of interest to motorcyclists.
