  • Any ABATE Members?

    Evidently I posted this question in the classified section last night. I was wondering if there were any ABATE members. If so, what are the pros and cons? Would you recommend membership?

    Thanks.

    I went to one ABATE event in WA. Won’t ever go again. I’m sure their intent is honorable, but it was just a huge group of drunk posers riding recklessly..

      ABATE: American Bikers against Totalitarian Enactment. Back in the day when we were fighting the helmet law in Texas I was involved. But that was long ago, in the 1980"s, and my membership has long since lapsed. I think it's hard to put a finger on the pro's and cons 'cause the agenda varies from chapter to chapter. Some are quite civil while others have an almost outlaw vibe. Lots of guys didn't know what totalitarian enactment meant, so they called it American Bikers against the Establishment. Pretty much the same meaning.

            Same for me. Went on an ABATE ride about 5 years ago. 250 miles and 4 bar stops. Never again.

              Abate = ride to bar pound 3 drink ride faster to next bar. No thanks. Like a pussy version of an outlaw club.
