Contact: Tim Tennimon, Executive Director, ABATE Of California, Inc.




ABATE of California Inc., is resolute in our commitment to move forward and stand strong in the motorcycle rights movement. With mounting pressure from state and federal agencies we are facing motorcycle smog laws, low noise ordinances, a motorcycle safety summit that is working in conjunction with the CHP and NHTSA to impose more restrictions on riding your motorcycle, helmet laws and cities that want to limit gatherings by motorcyclists.


In order to strengthen our position we are committed to working with all MRO's including NCOM, MRF, AMA, MMA and any state motorcycle rights organizations that strengthens our lobby on legislative issues and on motorcycle safety.


Our united front with these other MRO's make us better prepared to attack issues on a broader scope by having access to legal assistance, promoting the sharing of information among the SMROs and different groups, supporting and increasing political and legal effectiveness through free assistance with legislative strategy, safety projects, public awareness, information updates and assistance in both the legislative and judicial arenas.


We are proud of our alliance with these organizations and look forward to the success that this collective effort is sure to bring.
