ABATE of Minnesota Rocks the Capitol

On February 2, 2011, ABATE of Minnesota members and motorcyclists from groups and clubs statewide came to the Minnesota State Capitol to lobby with one voice to protect the rights and safety of all motorcyclists.

From Albert Lea to Roseau, from Marshall to Duluth and from all points in between, hundreds upon hundreds of Minnesota motorcyclists poured into the State Capitol in St. Paul to protect motorcycling freedom and improve motorcycle safety.

The Capitol Rotunda was a sea of bikers as Senators, Representatives and others expressed support for increasing careless driving penalties, protection of the motorcyclist funded Motorcycle Safety account and most of all, no changes to the adult helmet law in Minnesota.

ABATE of Minnesota will continue to:
Maintain and defend the rights and freedoms of all Minnesota motorcyclists.
Promote increased penalties for motor vehicle operators who drive in a negligent manner and harm or kill others.
Promote motorcycle safety training, including beginner and experienced rider courses.
Promote motorist awareness of motorcyclists through our Share the Road program.
