October Issue October 26, 2016 10:22 AM 

ABATE of Wisconsin's goal is to give the motorcyclists of Wisconsin a strong, united voice with regard to their future, their way of life, their safety, and their legal rights as motorcyclists and citizens.

Here we are at the time of year when summer starts to fade away and the political commercials and phone calls start to pick up. Every year, I think to myself that this is an important election, and this year is no exception. John Reblin and I were at an event last month, and we had a person come up to us to ask what ABATE's thoughts were on the presidential election. My response to him was that, while I am very concerned about the crazy presidential election, I am more concerned with the state and congressional elections. I think that these are where we can make the most advancement with issues that affect motorcyclists in Wisconsin. We will need to be diligent in learning what the candidates' thoughts are on black box information, how a motorcycle should be defined and registered, what the penalties should be for drivers convicted of ROW violations, and motorcycle profiling. Invite the candidates to your October meeting and ask those questions to get a better feel for how they will vote on our issues.
