What is ABATE?

ABATE of Florida, Inc. is a state-wide, non-profit organization of motorcycle enthusiasts from all walks of life. Our members are carpenters, electricians, students, doctors, lawyers, auto mechanics, retirees, teachers, businessmen and women. We promote motorcycle safety, training, and political awareness. We are not a club or a gang. We fund our work through membership, toy runs, poker runs, rides, camp out's and other motorcycle related activities. Hillsborough County Chapter's major fund raising event is Spooks 'n Scoots and it uses these funds to help the state organization as well as other safety, educational and charitable purposes in it's geographical area. In the area of education ABATE of Florida, Inc. recently copyrighted a Motorcycle Safety and Awareness Program. The program is designed to be presented in schools and other public forums to better educate students and the general public concerning motorcycle safety. We are your neighbors and friends who work, pay taxes, pay a mortgage and get involved with our community. We serve our Country and believe in freedom.
