ABATE stands for:  A Brotherhood Aimed Towards Education.

ABATE of Iowa, Inc. works for you, the motorcycle enthusiast.

ABATE of Iowa, Inc. is a not-for-profit organization registered in the state of Iowa.

ABATE is a rights organization consisting of motorcycle enthusiasts throughout the state of Iowa.  Our goals and purposes are to keep motorcyclists, members and the public informed, to promote safe riding habits and to encourage favorable legislation for motorcyclists.  These are accomplished through a monthly newsletter, safety education programs designed to help prevent fatal and personal injury accidents, lobbying at the state legislature, and voter registration programs.

A great many restrictive laws pertaining to motorcycles and riders have been enacted by uniformed or misdirected legislative bodies.

ABATE of Iowa’s goal is to keep our legislature informed of our feelings about any legislation that we feel would be unfair or discriminatory towards motorcyclists.  Preventing unfair legislation is much easier than struggling to get an unfair law repealed.  ABATE of Iowa, Inc. also works with motorcycle rights organizations across the country to stop unfair federal legislation aimed at motorcyclists.

ABATE of Iowa, Inc. does not advocate that you ride without a helmet, but we feel that you should have the right to decide whether or not to wear one.

ABATE of Iowa, Inc. is a neutral organization that allows ALL riders to unite in brotherhood to safeguard our rights and still remain individuals with differing views.  ABATE of Iowa, Inc. feels that all motorcyclists are brothers with a common interest……riding free.
