Our Mission

An alliance of bikers dedicated to the protection of the individual rights of motorcyclists through political change, charitable works and public education.

Serving Members Since 1983

From 1903 to the 1960s, the motorcycling community was internally focused. There were efforts, especially on the AMA's part, to present a positive image of motorcycling to the public. There was little emphasis on political activity by motorcyclists. The idea of motorcyclists actually banding together and influencing legislation wasn't part of the landscape yet.

Since 1983, A.B.A.T.E. of PA has represented the interests of motorcyclists riding Pennsylvania's roads. Through a variety of programs, A.B.A.T.E. is working to protect and preserve the rights of over 800,000 licensed motorcyclists and the untold tens of thousands of riders who enjoy the variety of off-road recreational opportunities available. Regardless of whether you enjoy touring, cruising, trail riding or racing, A.B.A.T.E. of PA is here to serve you. Your help and support are needed to protect and promote your right to ride.
