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.

You might need a helmet AND a seatbelt while reading this. For a few years now, ABATE of Wisconsin has been working with our elected officials in Madison, trying to clear up the definition of a motorcycle. While we are making calls and visiting the offices, the legislators agree that a vehicle with a steering wheel and gas and brake pedals is not a motorcycle, but yet they do nothing about it. ... And then today I receive a draft of a piece of legislation that does the exact opposite of what we are trying to do! So you might ask: Did the bill author send it to us for our thoughts? NO! Did the Senate Transportation Committee Chair send it to us for our input? No, but they did send it to Harley-Davidson for their input! I had to have it relayed to me from a third party. The people who are most affected, the experts on motorcycle-related topics, the people who use their valuable vacation time from work to travel to Madison to discuss topics like this, the people who elect the Legislators did not even receive the courtesy of a phone call or email to discuss how we felt about this piece of legislation.
