ABATE University 2016 a Huge Success

Warm weather and an awesome program greeted bikers to the 2016 ABATE U educational conference. The theme for the weekend was helping riders understand how health issues affect their riding ability. Our good friend Slider Gilmore gave a two hour seminar titled “The Diabetic Rider”. Slider explained how riders young and old need to pay attention to their bodies and what to do when a medical emergency happens. He is a gifted teacher who makes learning fun!

ABATE of Minnesota

    American Bikers for Awareness, Training, and Education (ABATE) of Minnesota is a not for profit, grass roots organization that is committed to educating motorcyclists and the general public about motorcycling.

    ABATE members ride many different types and brands of motorcycles. We are all people with a common interest in a common activity—motorcycling. The fact that we share an interest in motorcycling is more important than the type of motorcycle we ride.
