A.B.A.T.E. of ILLINOIS, Inc. is a non-profit organization that allows all riders to unite in A Brotherhood Aimed Toward Education.

A.B.A.T.E. works to safeguard our motorcycling rights, while allowing us to be individuals with different views.

A.B.A.T.E.'s main concern is putting motorcycle legislation in its proper perspective. This is being accomplished through motorcycle safety education programs, public awareness programs, and other programs designed to prevent injury or fatal accidents to motorcyclists.

A.B.A.T.E. keeps the legislature informed of our position on any legislation that is unfair or discriminatory towards motorcyclists. A.B.A.T.E. works closely with motorcycle rights organizations across the nation to stop discriminatory legislation aimed at all motorcyclists throughout the country.

By joining A.B.A.T.E. , you can be a part of a political power that has come together to oppose anti-motorcycling legislation and to promote the safety of motorcyclists. You can help support the implementation of programs that will help the sport of motorcycling.

You will receive a patch, yearly membership card, yearly rocker, bumper sticker and a monthly newsletter that contains notices of A.B.A.T.E. activities and will keep you informed of any legislative activity affecting you — the motorcyclist. You can participate with fellow riders in service oriented activities such as blood runs, toy runs, clothing and food drives for the needy. Our positive public image is greatly enhanced by the generosity and concern shown through these endeavors.

Most of all, you have the personal satisfaction of knowing that with your membership, you are helping to preserve the basic freedoms of all motorcyclists.
Our Mission Statement means we are dedicated to protecting the rights of all motorcyclists, both street and trail riders and we intend to continue to do just that! This means that in addition to our proven record of success in representing the "Street Riders," we also include a successful record with our Off Highway Vehicle (OHV) Committee.

A.B.A.T.E. of Illinois has been in the forefront of the development of OHV Parks funding, emphasizing a coalition of concerned multiple use beneficiaries, promoting safety & viable ecological concerns. A.B.A.T.E. has also been a major factor in the development of an OHV Grant Program through State Agencies, which will enable groups, local governments and even private individuals to purchase land for the specific purpose of recreational use. A.B.A.T.E. is in the forefront of a coalition of multiple use advocates dedicated to the ideal of planned access and use of land to benefit current and future generations.
Stand and be heard, join A.B.A.T.E. for more information and start taking action to control your own destiny. We can accomplish even more than we already have, if we put forth a concerted effort, gaining momentum as our membership grows. Your fellow riders need your help, and you need theirs.
Remember, one person does make a difference, but a group "focused on the same vision" is a force to be reckoned with and respected. We have proven that many times over, but the job is never done. You can help yourself as well as countless others, and all it takes is a membership application and a little time. Stand with us and be heard.
