A.B.A.T.E. of Minnesota is a not-for-profit, grass roots organization that is committed to educating motorcyclists and the general public about motorcycling. A.B.A.T.E. gives all of us - from the street rider, to the off-road fan, to a non-rider with a strong interest in motorcycling - an opportunity to unite and become part of a strong motorcycle organization. A.B.A.T.E. members ride many different types and brands of motorcycles. We are all brothers and sisters with a common interest--riding free with the right to choose.
The fact that we share an interest in motorcycling is more important than the type of motorcycle we ride or if you ride. Our ability to enjoy many freedoms while riding motorcycles in Minnesota is the direct result of people joining together to fight for our rights and freedoms. The efforts of these people have made Minnesota a leader in motorcycle safety. We have one of the toughest licensing standards in the nation, the best public awareness programs, and the most comprehensive rider education programs in the nation. These efforts have helped reduce motorcycle accidents, injuries and fatalities, in spite of the growing number of licensed motorcyclists in Minnesota.
