ABATE is a motorcyclists' rights organization, dedicated to maintaining your right to ride without undue government interference. We are not an anti-helmet organization. Many of our members choose to wear a helmet every time they ride - the operative word being "choose."

CURRENTLY, ABATE is working on anti-discrimination laws. Many motorcyclists are experiencing a refusal by owners of certain establishments to serve them as long as they identify with motorcycles. Even a simple tee-shirt with a motorcycle name or logo on it is sufficient to get you banned from some establishments.

ABATE members come from all walks of life and are to be found nationwide. Delaware has chapters in all three counties, New Castle, Kent, and Sussex. We do not discriminate against anyone on account of the make or type of motorcycle they ride.

MONTHLY meetings are held for business purposes and all members are encouraged to attend. Your input is important to us.

An organization dedicated to all motorcyclists

ABATE of Delaware has been involved in fighting for and protecting the rights of motorcyclists, promoting Rider Education and Motorcycle Awareness, and helping our communities since 1977

The Legislative Task Force:

  • Successfully repealed the mandatory helmet law in 1978
  • Successfully presented testimony at three Senate hearings in the past six years to defeat proposed mandatory helmet laws.
  • Lobbied Delaware's Federal Legislators to help repeal the Federal Helmet Law in 1995
  • Monitors proposed legislation, State and Federal, that affects motorcyclists. Not just helmet laws but insurance discrimination, vehicle modification regulations, rider education and motorcycle awareness, etc., and keeps the membership informed.
  • Task Force members are members of the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA), Motorcycle Rider Foundation (MRF) and the National Coalition of Motorcyclists (NCOM).  They attend numerous seminars and workshops across the country each year to develop new strategies to protect our freedom.
  • Promotes voter registration and participation in the electoral process, and involvement in the campaigns of those that support our positions.
  • Lobbied State Governors since the 1980s, for signing the "Motorcycle Awareness and You" proclamation.
