Onondaga Chapter

P.O. Box 11575 - Syracuse, New York, 13218


American Bikers Aimed Toward Education (ABATE) is a not-for-profit corporation, not a "motorcycle club", and was formed to promote and protect the interests of New York State motorcyclists. ABATE monitors and interracts with the legislative process,and provides educatuional and social opportunities for members, as well as non-members. ABATE continuously strives to become acquainted with the issues and people of the motorcycling communuity.

We encourage all our members to be informed, registered voters. We write letters to our elected officials and stay aware of what is going on with motorcycle legislation, education and other transportation issues. We spread the word about motorcycle safety, awareness, and education.

Membership is not required to attend meetings and events. We encourage anyone interested in motorcycling to "stop by". Now for a short list of upcoming events...
