Our Approach

Serving Chatham, Bryan, Liberty, Effingham, Bulloch, Evans, Screven and Jenkins Counties.

This non-profit, political lobbyist group works for motorcyclists' rights through legislation. ABATE welcomes all cyclists and motorcycling enthusiasts. ABATE members often become involved with community efforts and work to improve the general public's views of motorcycling and motorcyclists.

ABATE is not a Motorcycle Club. It is a politically active organization focused on motorcyclists' rights and safety and is composed of riders and enthusiasts from all areas of the state, from all walks of life and who ride all makes of bikes.

ABATE's goals include rider education and public awareness of motorcyclists. Our main focus is to keep motorcycle legislation in its proper perspective. Preventing unfair legislation from becoming law is easier than fighting to get the law repealed.
