ABATE has traditionally been defined as ‘A Brotherhood Against Totalitarian Enactments.’ The most recent definition is ‘American Bikers Aiming Towards Education.’ ABATE was originally formed by Lou Kimzey of California. The concept has since spread across the nation with many chapters in most states. Most ABATE organizations are run at the state level with the various chapters or regions participating therein.
ABATE came to Florida in the mid-1970s. At that time it was a group of individual and unaffiliated chapters. In 1979, ABATE of Florida, Inc. was formed by these chapters. This union was the basis for today’s organization. Throughout the years, ABATE of Florida, Inc. has striven to be an effective political force for the rights of motorcyclist in Florida. We have attempted to keep up to date on all legislation on a federal level and have tried to input our concerns to our federal officials.
ABATE of Florida, Inc. has a professional lobbyist to aid us in our fight for freedom of choice. Our lobbyist has been instructed to keep close watch on all state or national legislation that would affect all motorcyclists.
There are over 7800 members of ABATE and over 30 ABATE chapters throughout the State of Florida, one close to you to chose from. CLICK HERE to see all the chapters in Florida, there’s one close to you.
