Aren't these choices and decisions ones that we should be making for ourselves? Or should we be relinquishing these rights to a government that suggests that we are incapable of controlling our own lives and deciding what's right for ourselves?
Now the government tries to tell us what we have to wear. They tell us what we can and can't do to our motorcycles. They harass some of us because we look different. Some areas discriminate against us with motorcycle-only roadside checkpoints. Are you going to quietly sit by and watch your freedoms of the open road disappear? Or will you stand with other like-minded motorcyclists and save the lifestyle that we all love so much?
Luckily for us, almost every state in the country has an ABATE organization. State ABATE organizations are motorcycle rights organizations dedicated to freedom of the road with a goal to give motorcyclists a strong, united voice with regard to their future, their way of life, their safety and their legal rights as motorcyclists and citizens.
If you aren't a member yet, you really need to be. Most membership dues work out to be just pennies a day. Aren't your motorcycling rights worth at least that much?! Please find your state's ABATE organization on the linked list and find out how you can join the fight. If we don't stand up for our rights as motorcyclists, who else will?
