A.B.A.T.E. of Illinois Mission Statement

The mission of the members of A.B.A.T.E. of Illinois is to preserve the universal right to a safe, unrestricted motorcycling environment, and to propose and advocate actions that can be taken by elected and appointed officials to protect and conserve the natural resources of the State of Illinois, and ensure through professional management that sustainable use, recreational opportunities and enjoyment of these new resources is available for this and future generations.

Our Purpose

We make every effort to influence State, National, and Worldwide political actions in favor of motorcycle rights.

Safety and Education
We conduct programs to educate drivers, seniors, legislators, and motorcyclists.


Originally started by Easyriders magazine in 1971
First incorporated in Illinois in 1975
Incorporated a second time in Illinois in 1986

ABATE is not a club, gang, Harley group, and we do not have back patches. Anyone that is interested in preserving their right to ride is welcome. And while we are a non-profit organization we are not a charity. We currently have over 12,000 members and 60 chapters throughout the state. ABATE consists of and Executive Board charged with conducting the day to day affairs of the organization; a Board of Directors which consists of 1 member from each chapter charged with setting policy, enforcing bylaws and guiding the organization. The members in each chapter provide input to the State through their board reps and drive the organization.
